the project

M10H, a pioneering narrative VR venture led by Fanni Fazakas, in collaboration with survivors of substance abuse. Users assume the role of the bystander, influencing the storyline's trajectory. Ethically designed with expert guidance, players navigate tough choices—rescuing a young woman named Mara or succumbing to the role of the perpetrator. The multiplayer element adds a dynamic twist, amplifying the impact of every decision.

the story

We're all bystanders when we witness situations endangering someone's safety. As M10H VR visitors immerse themselves in a night-time party, where fun reigns supreme, they encounter Greg's belief in prioritizing enjoyment over consequences. They'll observe Mara, a 22-year-old woman, gradually losing control without explanation, making her vulnerable. Visitors shape the night's outcome, facing ethical dilemmas as other characters introduce new possibilities.

GHB is colorless, odorless and it dissolves in a drink pretty easily.

It causes blackouts, wherein the victim loses control over their body and their actions, becoming completely defenseless.

GHB is often used for sexual assaults, robbery, or human and organ trafficking; and is one of the most common causes of drug-related deaths. A few drops of GHB can knock you out and steal an important part of human dignity, the ability to control your life and body.

The Bystander effect in ambigous party situations:

If someone is hurt in the context of a party, not everyone reacts. People who are present in such a situation, but are not in the role of the aggressor or victim, they are considered to be bystanders.

There are three main types of bystanders: followers (assistants), who do not initiate, but take an active role in the bullying; behavior supporters (reinforcers), who support the bullying behavior (overtly or covertly, e.g. by turning a blind eye) but do not take an active role in the bullying; and behavior defenders, who dislike the bullying and try to help the target by intervening.

The socio-psychological interventions we intend to introduce with VR can lead to long-term behavioral changes as they contribute to an adaptive reinterpretation of various situations. If people can understand potentially dangerous social situations, they will become more active agents. The present situation is very specific about how to become an active agent in an emerging rape situation at a party and act appropriately to defend the victim, instead of being a passive bystander.
