Wonderscope AR


Friday, December 21, 2018

So it’s the end of the year and it felt like a good time to share a recent project – Wonderscope is an augmented reality (AR) iOS app for kids that transforms ordinary spaces into extraordinary stories. WITHIN felt that PRELOADED’s expertise in kids audience and immersive content made us perfect partners to help realise their vision, joining forces with their LA-based team to conceive and develop the product’s launch content: A Brief History of Amazing Stunts by Astounding People.

A Brief History of Amazing Stunts by Astounding People is Wonderscope’s launch content, showcasing how AR can drive a whole new approach to “spatial storytelling” and transform ordinary spaces into extraordinary stories.

Life in VR


Monday, March 12, 2018

BBC Worldwide and Google have teamed up to bring one of the world’s most respected and loved natural history brands to VR in a completely unique real-time experience.

BBC Earth: Life in VR is a meticulously researched and crafted experience, which takes the users to the Californian coast, and to an underwater world bursting with life.

Designed for audiences new to VR, the experience adopts Preloaded’s low threshold design approach, putting great emphasis on ease of use and the overall comfort of the experience. Honed over many months of testing, the Life in VR experience and format has been created to capture the imagination of the BBC’s Natural History content, and build on the passion for VR.

Featuring some of the most popular animals viewers encountered in the Blue Planet II TV series (including a sea otter and sperm whale) users come face to face with some of the planet’s most fascinating sea creatures, experience life at a microscopic scale, and dive into the ocean abyss with giants of the sea.

Pixel work for Iron Maiden’s Speed of Light game, created by Last17.

Taking on the arcade greats of old, we designed and built Iron Maiden their very own co-op adapting the music video’s pixel aesthetic. The platformer pits you against an endless supply of randomly generated levels. With over a quarter million plays within the first couple of days, the game also picked up a FWA award.

ICARUS.1

Earlier in the year I decided to take part in the Edge Magazine, Get into Games contest 2015. With the brief of ‘Loot’, 2 months and using Unity3D, I ended up producing ICARUS.1, a FPA (First Person Adventure) game. The game won the contest and has been shown at the Dare Protoplay Games Festival, Dundee.

Abandoned for decades, crew MIA, the ICARUS.1’s job was to store mined Ore from the systems outlying planets. It orbits the local sun to maintain it’s solar energy and proved a lucrative business for JME corp.

After contact was lost, no attempt was ever made to make contact with the stricken station, instead the project was mothballed – a cover up some may say.

Many stories about what happened have become lore but Sam isn’t focusing on these ‘stories’, the goal is the cargo and the wealth it will bring.

“I turned the lights down for a really immersive experience, and the ore collection mechanic was so much fun and perfectly fed my obsessive compulsive near-disorder.”
David Helgason – Unity Technologies founder

“The game brings back feelings of first playing System Shock or Half-Life. I love creepy, empty space ships with history, and the sound design on this was especially great.”
Robin Hunicke – Funomena CEO
