Blade Runner 9732 Lets Fans See Deckard's Apartment
1-3-18NEWSBladeRunnerVR.jpg

We live in a wonderful world where fans of pop culture are more and more able to create amazing things. The most recent example of this is a fan recreation of the apartment owned by Rick Deckard in Blade Runner. This isn't just any old computer model though; Blade Runner 9732 is a painstakingly accurate representation of Deckard's apartment that can be viewed in virtual reality.

The “game,” if we even really want to call it that, is available through Google Drive and has support for HTC Vive headsets. Creator Quentin Lengele hopes to release the simulator on Steam as well (on January 7, 2018, but this was not created with official permissions. It's probably safe to say this project might only remain available for a short time. If you have the ability to, you should definitely give it a look.

Blade Runner 9732 absolutely captures the atmosphere of Deckard's apartment and the surrounding exterior. You can walk outside onto the deck and admire the rain backed by the obnoxious neon lighting we all love from Blade Runner. Currently there isn't much to do in Blade Runner 9732, other than simply moving about Deckard's apartment and admiring his assortments of random items. Lengele wants to create another version of the simulator with interactive elements. Considering how much work must have gone into simply recreating Deckard's apartment, it's no surprise that interactivity took a back seat for this first reveal.

If you have a moment you can check out Blade Runner 9732 on Google Drive, or you can simply ogle videos of it on YouTube.
