Ann, 16, a Thai-American teen coping with body dysmorphia and an overbearing mother, struggles to own her place in the world. In search of freedom, she embraces cosplay and ultimately finds a hero. Herself. But only after countless years of pressure from her own mother to lose weight...
The Wonder Buffalo VR experience begins in a colorful bedroom captured in photogrammetry. Ann's eclectic and bright bedroom mirrors her internal clash between Thai and American cultures.
By exploring Ann's eccentricity and unlocking her six strength objects you transform Ann's room into a cosmic comic book kaleidoscope and ultimately unleash Ann as her own superhero character, Wonder Buffalo.
