I’ve been so inspired by being in New York because everything from what people are wearing on the street to the way they’re interacting with each other to driving through the West Village at night and you see a couple kissing on the street, or you see someone fighting outside their apartment, or you see so much humanity on a daily basis that even if you’re not inspired by your own life that day you can be inspired by someone else’s life.
Atum is very clever first-person 2D platformer where you play the player playing the player in a platformer. Confused? Good!
As you play through the 2D platformer on your computer, you use real world elements to assist the player that you’re playing – like using a lighter to light up dark areas in the game. It’s great fun experimenting with items in your environment, seeing what can assist your little white man, and it would also be a perfect fit for Oculus Rift if the developers ever decided to enhance it.
