Video Demo


MazeVR brings virtual reality to the classic maze environment. Mazes in real life are fun and exciting. It is immersive to be lost in a maze, and feel the need to find your way out. Maze games are traditionally much less exciting. Even though there may be cool graphics and props, the feeling of being lost doesn't exist in a traditional virtual maze. MazeVR seeks to change this by putting the user in a virtual maze environment. The sense of immersion isn't lost when users are transported into MazeVR.


MazeVR is a virtual maze environment for google cardboard. The goal is to make it to the end of the maze. This demo consists of three different levels.

Once each level is completed, the user is teleported to the following level. As stated previously, this is designed to be an immersive experience. There are various props on each of the levels to add to this factor.

Technical Explanation

The project for the VR Maze, was created to give users an experience in a virtual environment that allows them to interact and feel immersed in a series of mazes where they have to find a way out. The pure technical components we used were Unity, Google Cardboard, Assets from the Unity Assets store, and various scripts we found online. A couple of techniques we tried, in attempt to give the users a good experience, was decorating the environment with objects such as a giant robot, an animated horse, and a dragon. Along with objects, we also added in 3D audio to provide the users some guidance through the maze.


Maze VR uses gaze based input, as well as the button on google cardboard
