Explore Gaming with Atuatanga VR

Step into a new dimension at The Backhouse's Nikau Room as we unveil a new virtual reality (VR) experience that has been created with contributors based right in Whanganui such as Hayden Steedman from Wild Eye.

Atuatanga is an immersive experience like no other. Virtual reality guides you deep into a Māori world view, showing future destruction if we don’t take action now. Using cutting edge technology from Meta Quest and the Unreal Engine, Atuatanga lets you see, hear and feel the journey of the Atua.

This drop in event is open to anyone who wants to be guided through this experience and give VR a go. Other active games will also be available to play with while you wait to enter the realm of Atuatanga.
