BORDEAUX | Independent game developer Asobo Studio is proud to announce today the release of two games for the Microsoft HoloLens Development Edition.
Asobo Studio and Microsoft have a rich history of working together and this thrilling partnership brings these holographic experiences to life in a way that uniquely showcases the capabilities of HoloLens and inspires developers to think about their own creations in new ways.
Fragments & Young Conker will be available with the Microsoft HoloLens Development Edition, and can be downloaded from the Windows Store on the device:
- In Fragments, you become the detective in a high-tech crime thriller. Experience compelling new possibilities for storytelling and gameplay when life-sized characters are aware of your presence, share your real space, and interact with you in mixed reality. Spatial mapping allows holographic clues to be dynamically placed in whichever room you play. You can watch the Fragments presentation video here.
- In Young Conker, you guide a playful, pint-sized hero through your world in an ever-changing adventure game that highlights the fun of playing in mixed reality. Levels change and adapt to your environment, so you can play the same level in different rooms for a unique experience every time. You can watch the Young Conker presentation video here.
