Echochrome: Not Just Another Game

Tuesday, May 27, 2008 Posted by Ismail Habib , 16 comments
Even though I'm not a real gamer, I still like to follow the development in the game world. From what I see in the recent years, the development of games is a bit stagnant. It's true that in matter of graphics we have been experiencing an incredible improvement. However, the types of game doesn't vary as much as I expected. A death in creativity?

If you also have a similar opinion, then you might be interested to know this game: Echochrome (Mugen Kairou). It is a game developed by SONY for the PlayStation Portable and PlayStation 3. Echochrome is a puzzle game involving a figure traversing a rotatable world where physics and reality are affected by perspective. What seems to be a impossible path is made possible by rotating the camera to the right angle. A hole will not have any effect when you cover it with another object.

This game based on OLE Coordinate System developed (an engine that determines what is occuring based on the camera's perspective) by Jun Fujiki. This engine made it possible to constraints movement not only by 3D coordinates but also by the position of camera as well.

Take a look at the trailer below and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do :)
