Henry is a lonesome hedgehog that wants to hug everybody. He makes a wish for his birthday: friends to celebrate with. This work tries to bring VR closer to large audiences and cause them an uncontrollable desire to hug Henry.
Oculus Story Studio is the creative department of Oculus Rift, where the narrative potential of VR is researched.
