'Augmented reality' ghost game coming to DSi
Don't get scared now...
A Nintendo DSi videogame’s in development that’ll use “augmented reality” technology to help you communicate with ghosts.
Ghostwire uses the DSi's camera to superimpose ghosts onto screen shots
Ghostwire, from Swedish outfit A Different Game, uses the handheld console’s integrated camera to superimpose in-game ghosts over the view seen by the lens.
The result? The DSi apparently becomes a portal to the astral plane where you must find and collect ghosts existing all around you.
The ultimate aim is to help set each ghost free by documenting their presence and discovering why they haunt your world.
Gamers will also have several other ghost busting tools at their disposal, including the DSi’s microphone – presumably so you can chat to the dead, and a frequency modulator for tuning into ghosts.
Anders Bergman, Lead Game Designer of Ghostwire, claimed that the DSi’s the perfect platform to use because it “allows us to enhance the integrated real-world experience with the combination of camera, microphone and touch screen”.
A launch date for Ghostwire on the DSi hasn’t emerged yet. ®
Have you guys seen the AR games on http://rubberduckzilla.com ?? Been working with oasis, and just looking for some feedback on the site and the games. Has a cool manga theme on the website, is like ur playing games on an old NES or something.
Anyway, looking forward to feedback :-)
oh almost forgot, the AR to play the game is here http://is.gd/B0uV
This looks AWESOME! Hopefully I can get rid of the ghosts that haunt my fridge, drink my beer and eat my sausages. And rape me.
DS owners are getting games. What's a PSP?
That DS owners are total saps...
