A Boston College project is bringing Joyce's novel to VR
See the game
oycestick is a project based at Boston College that is concerned with transforming the wonders of James Joyce’s Ulysses into a virtual reality experience. It works to recreate the immediacy of Joyce’s prose through its virtual spaces, starting with the interior of Joyce’s Martello Tower, and progressing into further scenes and objects taken from the novel.

Comprised of twenty-one members across disciplines and areas of study, it is a digital humanities venture concerned with collaboration across these different skill-sets. There are three discrete groups, each one equipped with storyboarders, developers, text members, sound experts, and 3D modelers working together to create scenes that are visually, aurally, and tactilely sophisticated and accurate to Joyce’s vision.
