    Looks interesting but can we have this on a real platform and not overhyped and over priced Magic Leap. I guess Resolution Games was paid by Magic Leap or they have a death wish. Also, will we ever have a game with a male protagonist again?

    So someone made what looks like a VR experience (i.e. not making use of AR) for a platform that is overhyped, for sale and a huge disappointment in general? Well invested money /s. Do yourselves a favor and port it to a platform that actually has users.

    Edit: it’s resolution games? LOL. I guess that venture capital still feels warm.

      Dioramas like this are much better suited for AR than VR. It’s not recreating a full sized world you walk around in.

      • sebrk

        There are lots of VR experiences from a “God” perspective. And you can see in the video how the user is supposed to get closer and thus is engulfed in the world more or less. It still does not make use if the AR medium which is my main point.

  • Resolution games is really prolific in the XR ecosystem. This game does really look good, it’s a pity that is available only on ML

    I guess magic leap hasn’t found a buyer yet.
