With lots still going on at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), there is never a dull moment at VRFocus. Previews, screenshots and news galore, VRFocus has got another trailer to feast your eyes on. Having previously reported on the videogame demos available at Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) E3 stand for the Project Morpheus head-mounted display (HMD), and revealing Superhypercube as an exclusive for the HMD we now have the official teaser trailer.
Superhypercube is a bright neon, first-person puzzler. Developer Kokoromi revealed some of the influences in the game saying “In the early visual development for the game, we collected a reference file folder full of photos, illustrations, and film stills from the 60s, 70s, and 80s. We all love this aesthetic in general, but we each have our favorite references, especially from iconic films – everything from 2001: A Space Odyssey and Blade Runner to Xanadu — their analog special effects, retro-futuristic user interfaces and delicious lens flares. We created a series of concept illustrations that were inspired by light and space artist James Turrell, inhabited by our game’s own cubes and walls, and have been building upon this aesthetic ever since”.
VRFocus will be following any future updates to Superhypercube.
