The Relativity


Another oddity via Offworld this: The Relativity is an extension of Jun Fujiki’s OLE coordinate system. Like the original proof of concept that inspired Sony puzzler echocrome, The Relativity allows the user to create Escher-like impossible spaces and then manipulate them. This time it works from the inside, with a tiny camera view showing your drone person getting lost in impossible corridor spaces. Take a look at the video after the jump for a clearer understanding of how it works, then perhaps download the thing for yourself.

    Seems interesting but not particularly fun.

    Indeed, not necessarily directly interesting as game, but that’s some pimpin’ concept they got going on there.

    Hardcore lemmings :D

    I’d love to have an rts on such geometricky (see what i did there) terrain. Units moving onto new planes. The 2 bases directly next to each other but on opposed planes. Rotating a neutral unit sphere changes the point of view. Units destroyed by a change in point of view or made to look bigger and in turn being lent greater firepower.

    Argh some of those make my brain sore, which is impressive as brains do not have pain receptors.
