Dimensions - Adventures in the Multiverse - Reality Jockey Ltd
Enter a dimension of sight, and sound...The developers took the second part of that old Twilight Zone intro to heart with this new soundscape app, urging us to listen to our environment in new and interesting ways. This app not only changes the sounds around you - a mic enabled headset is required - but contextualizes the experience within the app. A new way of playing, to be sure.
Technology is improving in in leaps and bounds. It's an immensely exciting time to be alive. Just a glance at the growing prevelance of Augmented Reality games aptly demonstrates that. How about a game that relies on augmented sound though? Now, that's a bit different.
Dimensions looks extremely interesting in that respect. It uses augmented sound to turn the world into a game. Designed to be played in parallel with normal life, the game manipulates and enhances sound nearby changing the things we hear as a matter of course over the day. Players enter and exit different dimensions within the game as they go about their life. Missions can then be completed by collecting artifacts and fighting enemies.
It's a pretty fascinating concept and with music from Inception composer Hans Zimmer, Dimensions looks all the more compelling.
Dimensions is set for release sometime this month. We'll be sure to keep an eye on its development. For now, check out the video below that explains a bit more.
