The Answer

The Neon Knights are the raddest band from the 666th dimension and they need your help.

We created the very first co-operative AR game for the Microsoft Hololens to see how a shared gamified hallucination would work. Our custom software connected two headsets to detect and track each other while syncing a single game experience between them. The game sidesteps the early problems with gestural controls in the headset, and ports guitar controllers to arm players on a transdimensional journey. The two players face-off, attempting to play in time, and in key with music composed and performed by Mill director Carl Addy. While players shred they must dodge Holocrons, nasty little cosmic demons that can trap you in a bubble of elevator music, and high five power-ups to increase their scores.

Be rad. Rack up points. Unlock the Panlithium Crystal and spread sexy peace across the universe.
