Re-imagining Shakespeare's plays in virtual reality game

In the four centuries since William Shakespeare's death, his works have been adapted to pretty much every media you can imagine: books, film, radio, you name it. There's even a board game.

Now the Bard has entered the realm of virtual reality with an immersive video game called Play the Knave, developed by the University of California, Davis.

Jane O'Brien went to the Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts near Sacramento to see it in action.
