I saw the echochrome demo at E3 2007 at Sonys press conference earlier this month. Its M.C. Escher art-style really impressed me. At the time I remembered that I had seen it before. Then I realized that its strong resemblance to a Japanese media art project.
Echochrome is an elegant, beautiful looking art/game. The conceptual idea is based on the “OLE coordinate system”, developed by a gifted media artist/designer, Jun Fujik.
It can be found and downloaded here:
The echochrome game is based on the optical occlusion mechanism. It uses the shifting/rotation of the players perspective in a 2.5D world to solve particular puzzle environments.
Today Jun Fujik releases Individuality a new Java applet to experience with the concept of OLE Coordinate System. It’s another experimental game based on the same theme.
