Meet ‘George in the Tub’, a Presidential immersive real-time interactive VR Experience

funding platform Kaleidoscope has announced the debut of GEORGE IN THE TUB, an immersive real-time interactive VR experience created by studio Tender Claws. George in the Tub lets you inhabit the body of the 43rd president, and enjoy a quiet soak while you partake in your favorite activity: painting a self-portrait.

The experience serves as a prototype for a larger project that expands upon this voyeurism of President Bush. In the game, players relax in a bathtub while simultaneously painting with a VR controller. As the painting takes , it’s revealed by way of the subject matter that they’re inhabiting the body of former US president George W. Bush. The game was picked up by VR funding platform Kaleidoscope last year.

The game appears to be inspired by two infamous self-portraits painted by the former US president, one of himself in the tub and the other in a shower. This might have had a bigger impact in 2013, when those portraits were revealed.

The studio behind the game, Tender Claws, has been working in VR since 2002. Their most recent game is Virtual Virtual Reality, a satirical Daydream VR game in which you play a human working as a companion for AI inside virtual reality worlds (VR inside VR, roll credits). The description of the game on Google Play contains the phrase “An artichoke screams at you,”.
