Check out Bemani Style's Interview with Virtro's Creative Director Steven Martz
Paul Hartling, Bemani Style, November 14, 2017
We had a small chat with Steven Martz, Creative Director at Virtro Entertainment about their upcoming PlayStation VR title (and other platforms soon to follow), Run Dorothy Run which, by the time of this article, has been in development for 7 months. This game is a bizarre take on the world of The Wizard of Oz which has players racing down the road (not of yellow bricks), grabbing gems with your Move controllers. It’s music-based, meaning you’ll find a beat to your gem-collecting, and features 16 levels. Why it’s Oz-themed, of all things? We found out!
Regarding the team using The Wizard of Oz IP, Steven says “We really wanted to pull from something more fantastical and “camp” that has a lot of cultural significance, but also a very open-ended interpretation in pop culture. From its initial creation as a literary piece to the dozens of other books, films, and games, people have taken the original story and made it all their own in so many fun and creative ways."
