This time Resolution Games has gone for a whodunit detective videogame.
Magic Leap 1 may not be considered an ideal gaming platform due to its high cost and general focus towards enterprise use cases but nobody seems to have told Resolution Games. The studio which is well known for virtual reality (VR) titles like Bait!, Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs and Acron: Attack of the Squirrels has already released augmented reality (AR) title Angry Birds FPS: First Person Slingshot for the device and today adds another, Glimt: The Vanishing at the Grand Starlight Hotel.
Resolution Games revealed the title back in November, creating an original IP based around a detective mystery. In Glimt: The Vanishing at the Grand Starlight Hotel you take on the role of a top detective in the psychic division of the Warlock Investigation Bureau, tasked with solving a crime of interplanar proportions. Guests have been reported missing and you need to find out why.
Using Magic Leap’s spatial computing you’ll be presented with dollhouse scale scenes which need to be explored, solving a series of different cases around the hotel. These all bring you one step closer to learning the source of the dangerous magic responsible for these vanishings.
“As a studio, we’re excited to continue exploring different mediums and expanding our games catalogue with our third title in augmented reality,” said Tommy Palm, CEO of Resolution Games in a statement. “This is our second game for Magic Leap, and a lot has progressed with the platform since our first title launched. We’re seeing more potential than ever for augmented reality games and look forward to continuing to innovate in the space.”
Glimt: The Vanishing at the Grand Starlight Hotel is free on Magic Leap 1 so its perfect if you’re stuck at home with nothing to do. Of course, the headset is designed for work applications as well, hence why Magic Leap launched a Collaboration Package earlier this month. Companies get four Magic Leap 1 devices for a trial period of 45 days as well as access to Spatial, a cross-platform collaboration solution.
As for Resolution Games’ next projects, the studio has already confirmed one, Cook-Out: A Sandwich Tale.
