Xtreme Simon is built for multiple platforms and is an abstract 3D first-person puzzle game using light, sound and colour to create a strong atmosphere and to produce an interesting new type of game play. The main concept of the game is to create a fast paced environment of colour and sound for the user to interact with.
The chosen development environment is Unity3D. Unity3D is designed for game development and is very easy to create prototypes in and very easy communicate ideas and show practical approaches. The other advantage of using this development environment is that it is easy to export to multiple platforms as Unity is built with compilers for iPhone, Android, Web, PC and Mac. This leaves us with multiple release platforms without having to entirely recode the game for each platform.
The games atmosphere could be comparably similar to the film Cube (1997). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTKfVO56EMs
The games challenges can be quickly conveyed using a reference such as the color and sound game ‘simon says’.
As we are using Unity3D our only limitations is the Unity3D development environments limitations as knowledge can always be learned. The only other factor we may be limited by is the HSB colourspace. Fig 1. Has an example of the HSB colourspace which we can only manipulate using the senses the human species has. (hearing and touch).
