The idea is that these printable creatures will enable the player to perform in-game interactions. Many ideas are floating around right now. These include climbing walls, breathing underwater, cutting wires, shooting deadly projectiles, hacking computer systems, causing electrical damage, moving heavy objects, and even changing the temperature of an environment. These printable creatures offer many fun possibilities in a VR game. Just remember, the challenge does not lie in printing the creatures, but in knowing when and how to use them.
You might ask yourself, in-game, how does this printing effect look? Well, to demonstrate the creature printing technology in all its glory, I am pleased to share a clip from our current prototype. Naturally, the printing of this grub looks even better inside VR, but we hope this footage below will help communicate our vision for Genotype.
