In light of that one-week-holiday-but-i-still-got-design-to-do spirit, here’s a highlight of some games to check out: endless fun while stimulating your brain to solve those space-planning issues.
1. Fez by Kokoromi
Architects should have no problem navigating this game – they read and draft out so many elevations in their lifetime! A homage and 3D twist to those 2D games of old Nintendo.
2. Portal by Valve
My favourite game firm eschewing the traditional space continuum to create yet another dimension to their already immersive CG environment with their Source Engine. (trailer)
3. Echochrome by SonyJapan
Releasing soon, this uses an axo engine called the Object Locative Environment Coordinate System, an interactive optical illusion software, to create an Escher-esque landscape which one has to navigate through and “solve”. (trailer)
