Augmented reality games seem to be everywhere these days, and their inspiration is coming from some pretty interesting places.
Coming soon, renownded director David Cronenberg will see some of his amazing films turned into an AR game. Using GPS software, smartphone cameras, social media tools and more, developers are going to bring Cronenberg's films to life for gamers in what is being described by the Toronto International Film Festival as "stylized social-media meets psychological-thriller game play."
In fact, TIFF has created a job posting for a Project Manager on the Cronenberg AR project. Anyone interested in applying?
For my part, I'm just excited to see what movies will be included in the game, which should be released by the end of next year. eXistenZ is an obvious choice, as is Videodrome. But I wouldn't mind playing an Eastern Promises-themed game either. As long as it isn't too true to life.
