    The Future of Gaming
    Datura
  • "Datura" is a novel idea in the game world. Experimental narrative and original way of interaction open new possibilities and deliver unique emotions. Length of the game is comparable to that of a feature film, therefore making it attractive for a wide audience. However, instead of just passively watching a story, you get a chance to participate in it. It seems to be a natural consequence of cutting-edge technology development in the gaming industry. "Datura" seems to follow the trend.

    Just a couple of weeks before GDC 2012 Plastic Group were asked by Sony to try to write a simple head tracking functionality with the use of Playstation Move motion controller so everyone could get a glimpse of what future gaming would look like. 

    At Platige Image we've decided to prepare even more immersive setup.
