Behind The Scenes: Guardians

A trip to OTHERWORLD is a magical experience from start to finish.

From the moment you walk into our futuristic departure lounges and throughout your journey into the multiverse, you’ll be looked after by our dedicated team of VR enthusiasts both virtually and in-person.

Our Allies, easily identifiable by their distinctive white robes, will be your stewards in the real world, while our remote team of Guardians will watch over you as you traverse the digital realm.

Based in our office just a short walk from our original London VR Experience; OTHERWORLD Hackney, our Guardian team is comprised of gaming and tech fanatics from a wide variety of backgrounds, united by their newfound love for all things Virtual Reality.

Whether it’s helping you figure out which of our VR games to play, or offering a hand with the controls, the Guardians are there to help at all times during your voyage through the multiverse.

So just who are the people behind the voices?

Read on to get a sneak peek behind the scenes and meet some of the stars who bring your VR experience to life.

Caitlin - Lead Guardian

The wonderful Caitlin joined OTHERWORLD in late 2021, ascending to the position of lead Guardian just a year later.

Holding a Master’s Degree in Game Design & (more importantly) over 1000 hours on Overwatch, Caitlin knows her stuff when it comes to gaming.

With her cheerful demeanour and endless patience, she’s an incredible role model for the team who’s always happy to lend a helping hand - whether it’s choosing a VR experience or figuring out where to hide from the zombies!

Dylan - Guardian

Coming up on 2 years at OTHERWORLD, Dylan has become a staple of our Birmingham and London VR experiences.

When he isn’t serenading guests with his slightly out of tune renditions of Happy Birthday, you can find him trying out the latest and greatest VR Horror Experiences out there (much to the relief of our Content lead).

A true team player in every sense and a joy to be around, Dylan (Lovingly referred to as Dilly) is an expert on all things VR, and always happy to give pointers on how to secure the top spot on the leaderboard.
