Have you ever wondered about things like the three dimensions we live in and the concept of bending time and space? How about we try out something like that in a videogame?
The title in question is called Miegakure and is being developed by MTB Design Works Inc. The official PlayStation US Blog received a post from the president of the studio Marc ten Bosch detailing the extremely mindboggling concept behind their venture.
Miegakure is a 4D game. It lets players explore a detailed 4D world and use their ability to move in 4D to perform miraculous feats. In this game, the fourth dimension is not time! It is an actual fourth dimension of space, that works just like the first three dimensions we are familiar with. If you count time, this game is 5D!
Alongside the introductory post for the PlayStation 4 users, the developers have also shared two videos that will show you what the game looks when you are playing – see above – and tell you what exactly is going on in terms of the different dimensions – see below.
The video below will actually walk you through the process of moving between 2D and 3D worlds and then go on to explain how they are going to do the same with the fourth dimension in Miegakure.
Lastly, the post provides detailed explanations on how exactly the 4D objects are going to be rendered in 3D slices and so on. Check it out here.
So tell us, how many of you have really gotten a hold on the concept being applied in Miegakure.
