EmojiFlower VR is a virtual reality game combining the whimsical world of Emoji with stunning natural landscapes, 90s-inspired visuals, and original music. Collect Emoji as you explore flower, outer space, and underwater worlds inspired by the days of Super Mario Bros. Point and click to grab Emojis and gain points as you travel through time and space in 360 degree hyper reality.


Niki Selken originally developed EmojiFlower VR while conducting research for Gray Area Foundation for Art and Technology. Niki was in the process of learning Unity to create 3D VR worlds when she fell upon a 1990s-influenced interior design spread in Nest magazine. Inspired by the spread, which perfectly captured the zeitgeist of the 90s, Niki was struck by the desire to translate the spread into a VR game, adding Emoji, as a transition to the 21st Centure. EmojiFlower VR contemplates and celebrates the optimism, oddity, and excitement building in American culture towards the turn of the 21st century.
