The perfect game for a scary Halloween!!!
Media reaction so far:
“…the method of interaction is superbly unique.”
“…a bit of technical innovation is needed to make a new game stand out. And that’s where Quinn Genzel’s new app R.I.P. really shines.”
“A fascinating twist on the old virtual reality concept and one that – now we’ve actually seen it – seems like an obvious use of the iPhone’s unique motion sensing system.”
— Pocket Gamer
“The innovation comes from the way you look around the 3D environment”
— iPhone Games Network
“When I first laid eyes on the description for R.I.P. I knew I would have to try it.”
— iPhone Apps Review
“It isn’t often that we run into something we simply haven’t seen before, and R.I.P. fits that description..”
“…an interesting look at where iPhone games could be heading in the future: augmented reality.”
— Slide to Play
This game uses a unique, revolutionary means of control and play specially designed for the iPhone. It’s like total 3D immersion virtual reality, but without the helmet or googles. The iPhone is used as a viewfinder into a virtual world that wraps completely around you. Aiming the phone downward shows you a virtual ‘ground’, while upward shows you ‘tree tops’ and ‘sky’. Tilting the iPhone 90 degrees left or right shows you a corresponding view to the right or left of your ghost in the graveyard. From there, you can also look up and down (but in landscape mode). Gravity in this virtual world corresponds with that in the real world. See for yourself just what the iPhone is capable of!
R.I.P. is a 3D first-person simulation that casts you as a ghost lost in a cemetery. The goal is the same as its title: R.I.P. — Rest In Peace. All you have to do is find your own grave, marked “R.I.P.”, so that you can finally Rest In Peace. Are you up for the challenge?
For fans of iDracula, Zombie Attack!, The Creeps!, Zombie Invasion, Zombieville U.S.A. and other horror-themed apps, you’ve gotta check this out. Also recommended for fans of 3D simulation apps like AlienMangle, Nanosaur 2, Bugdom 2 and Ghost Buddy.
