Wheelchair Simulator is a comedic VR game about a serious
issue. Try to traverse the city by pushing the wheels with
your hands and learn the story of a person who does that every day.
Wheelchair Simulator throws you into “slightly” exaggerated
inaccessible city on two wheels while being accompanied
by sarcastic jokes and real stories from the life of
(the very much real) Dmytro Schebetyuk
Dmytro suffered a spinal injury seven years ago, and is now a wheelchair user. The incident hasn’t stopped him from having a full life – doing extreme wheelchair stunts, travel and even hitchhike around the world. He also loves swimming and archery — he even won a place in the Ukraine’s national Paralympic archery team. He saw the city from a completely different angle and realized that it didn’t suit the needs of people like him.
We believe that power of VR can help battle real world issues by putting you literally in other people’s shoes. Experience the world from the different perspective and help us battle inaccessibility in Ukraine.
