The most visually stunning representation of a real-world environment. This is a real location, a real art-gallery based in Auckland New Zealand. The art-work has been scanned to a level of detail not demonstrated in any other traditional VR experience.

About This Game The Homestead is an extremely detailed real-life encapsulation of an iconic art gallery based in Auckland, New Zealand. Next to our other experiences such as Nefertari: Journey to Eternity, this is technically likely the highest level of detail photogrammetry capture in the public domain. Achieving close to photo-realistic sense of truly being there.
The art-work in this lovely Victorian abode was captured independently from the environment. Scanned at a level of detail not demonstrated in any other traditional VR experience. Hence the 24GB file size.
This experience is a teaser of what is to come. A living, breathing art gallery with dynamically & accurately represented real-world content constantly dynamically changing overtime. Brought in and out of exhibition. In addition, expansion of the space to the entirety of this beautiful place will be eventually unlocked in it's grandeur. Though for now. Do enjoy this uncanny experience of realism.
The art collection in question is held by Sir James Wallace and the Wallace Trust. His collection is extensive.
IMPORTANT: This is a simulation of a real world environment. If you are more interested in gaming, this experience is not for you. It is simply the art of going to an art gallery for arts sake. We also appreciate your support in allowing this experience to grow.

The Homestead user review
I enjoyed the app. It has some of the clearest, cleanest photogrammetry I've seen in VR. It is worth the price for me, but others who may be tight on funds may find the content not worth the price.
Wow, truly incredible! Nice work! A new bar has been set.
Whilst it looks nice and impressive being able to see the art close up in nice detail, I'm giving it a thumbs down simply on the price at £3.99 as I barely got 20 mins in it, and that included listening to the audio and viewing the art twice.

I can't speak to performance since my setup right now is a little bootleg, but will contribute some impressions.
Really beautiful experience-- one of the best photogrammetry captures I've yet seen, and the 'realtime' elements are excellent-- floor reflections, the projectors, the crystals. Very nice touches. I SO wanted to read the text on the walls but its ever so slightly too tiny. One of the risks of a capture I suppose!
If you own a high quality HMD and computer, this could stand as the new go to "wow new users" software replacing the dated TheBlu. You can see individual brushstrokes, all of them. 2080ti
