Transpose is a dreamlike VR puzzle game set in a surreal world that enables players to shift perspectives in ways that are not possible in any other medium.
Players are granted the power to manipulate time, enabling them to create multiple versions of themselves, and to solve increasingly complex puzzles as they explore 30+ levels. Players record and layer past “echoes” of themselves to traverse incredible paths and collaborate across time.
We wanted to do something that hadn’t been done in VR before. Although time rewinding has been used as a game mechanic numerous times in “flat screen” gaming, bringing it to VR took it to a whole new level.
From the very first prototype we made, it was clear that the 1 to 1 recording and playback of your actions was something very special that you cannot experience anywhere else.
The project had a one-year production cycle and was created by a talented team of about 15 people (developers, artists, producers, game designers, etc...).
Some of our projects include an award-winning linear immersive VR narrative, an original VR bullet hell shooter game for HTC, Oculus and PlayStation, a Linear and VR hybrid series commissioned by the SyFy channels internationally, and an interactive virtual reality documentary that takes you into the biggest heavy metal festival on Earth!
Our philosophy is to lead with the idea, find and extend the story. Then, we choose the right platform, technique, or technology for the experience we want to create. Ultimately, we see the medium and its interactivity as fundamental to the story, and the story fundamental to success.
