LevelHead - spatial memory
Saturday, 20. October 2007

A fascinating new kind of gameplay, shows us Julian Olivier’s Levelhead. This new hybrid gaming form, in this case by combining analogue motions with digital content, will probably offer us a lot of future fun:

“levelHead is a spatial memory game by Julian Oliver. It uses a cube - with an image on each face - as its only interface.
It uses a single webcam (EyeToy) to capture the image and a screen to present the computed result.
‘Inside’ the cube are six rooms, each of which are logically connected by a network of doors. By tilting the cube you lead
a character around the rooms.”

A really nice use of the 3 dimensional space, combined with an unusual minimal design brings us the new Sony game for the Playstation: Echochrome.
Rotate Escher like landscapes to bring your character through the optical illusion.

Watch a 22 month old child rocking wii sports. Amazing and also some kind of frightening. But it’ll become really exciting when this generation is grown up!

little big planet
Sunday, 11. March 2007

Little big planet is a very interesting upcoming game for the PS3. It’s like a very very advanced linerider, combined with jump’n run and social network elements. You should watch the video until the end (or just the 2nd half), because the most interesting stuff is shown there. Looks like big fun!

Tuesday, 14. November 2006

Imagine thousand cars racing on one road. Of course impossible in reallife, but that’s in fact what computer games are for. In this case: Trackmania. Have a look at the amazing starting sequence:

Previous version, but fewer action.
