Last year Resolution Games diversified into augmented reality (AR) with Angry Birds FPS: First Person Slingshot for Magic Leap One. Thanks to the Magic Leap Independent Creator Programme the studio has just announced its next project, an original IP called Glimt: The Vanishing at the Grand Starlight Hotel.
The videogame is a detective mystery filled with psychic powers, magic and of course a little murder. Glimt: The Vanishing at the Grand Starlight Hotel looks to take place in the early 20th Century, with you taking on the role of a psychic detective. “New puzzle elements encourage players to think outside the box to solve a crime by using his or her psychic tools and abilities to fill in the gaps during the course of the investigation,” explains a brief synopsis.
“Our upcoming game taps the imagination like no other AR game we’ve made or even seen before, immersing players in a fantastical world of make believe,” stated Tommy Palm, CEO of Resolution Games in a statement. “This will be our third true AR title, and we are excited to be continuing our path of exploring how games can fully leverage the full spectrum of head-mounted AR’s inherent qualities. We can’t wait to share more details and release it to the community.”
Further details regarding locations, psychic powers and storyline have yet to be revealed. Resolution Games will be doing so in the coming months.
While this is Resolution Games’ second title for Magic Leap, the studio also released AR videogame Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs for both iOS and Android devices. When Glimt: The Vanishing at the Grand Starlight Hotel does arrive it’ll be the tenth immersive experience the studio has released. The most recent was local multiplayer Acron: Attack of the Squirrels featuring one player in virtual reality (VR) with up to eight others playing on mobile devices.
The studio is probably best known for its 2015 fishing title Bait! which supports most headsets and offers a casual angling experience. VRFocus will continue its coverage of the studio and Glimt: The Vanishing at the Grand Starlight Hotel, reporting back with further updates.
