Daniel Dilallo who is an accomplished video game designer and developer was recently spotted at the Game Developer’s Conference. But this time it was not to show off a new Guitar Hero and Call of Duty game, but his new virtual reality app. Dilallo is one out of those game developers who have not only become an integral part of virtual reality industry but has also crossed lines with out-of-the-box thinking. This time he has moved on from mainstream entertainment to R-rated experiences with bringing strip clubs to VR. Dilallo’s Mode VR and VRClubz.com created a VR app for the Gold Club San Francisco strip club that features clothed, topless, or fully nude exotic dancers.
The app was built in partnership with former porn actress Christy Mack and the Gold Club SF. For the app, Dilallo filmed 15 women at the local Armory, including four dancers who work at the Gold Club SF. Then, the high-definition videos were blended with the computer-animated reproduction of the actual strip club. The club’s look has been captured with the help of 360-degree cameras and then the artists were asked to recreate the textures of the club.
When questioned about why would anybody go to a VR club instead of a real one, Dilallo explained, “But you can’t always get to a club. And you can’t get as interactive as this in a real club.” While the general manager of Gold Club SF, Craig Bordeau said, “With virtual reality, we recognized a golden opportunity to deliver our highly rated entertainment experience to the comfort of your living room.”
The app will be launched in an R-rated version for more mainstream VR platforms and will also feature a topless version and a fully nude version. Once launched, the users will be able to go into the club, get VIP treatment, sit at tables, and get virtual lap dances with pornstars like Megan Rain, Christy Mack, Reya Sunshine, and Kendra Lust. Players will be able to take a front row seat to stage dances or enjoy champagne-room private shows which offer single, double, or triple girl action. Tipping the stage girls will cause them to remove articles of clothing. Later, the users will pay for an upgraded experience, where they will be able to purchase special privileges while inside the club for additional money; like buying credits for solo lap dances, mimicking everything that happens in a real strip club “but at a fraction of the price.”
However bizarre yet interesting this idea may sound, it’s an undeniable fact that adult VR industry is what is catching up amongst the masses. But what heights the industry will achieve with this combination of filmed porn and interactive gaming, is yet to be seen.
