Depending on your age and affinity for computer games, you may be familiar with The Sims and other games that stemmed from that. These games allow you to create your own house, decorate it, choose your family, your spouse, amusement park and essentially play God.
But, What Does This Mean?!
This game is called Proxi, built-in Unity by Wright and a team from Gallam Artists, it’s goal is to create rendered scenes that are entirely based off of your own unique and personal memories.
“This is, in some sense, a game of self-discovery,” Wright said in the announcement video. “(It’s) a game where we actually uncover the hidden ‘you.’”
Wright is hoping that by visually representing your memories in the game, players will be able to learn through their past experiences and the game will continue learning from the player as well.
According to DigitalTrends.com,
The video shows a few of these scenes in action, including a man fishing in a lake during a rainy day and a snow-covered log cabin. These are called “Mems” in the game, and multiple players will even be able to combine their memories to create a shared, more complex experience. Wright and Unity are looking for an artist to help them bring these memories to life as “tangible, visceral gameplay elements,” and it could be you.
To enter the contest, you must take three of your own personal memories and bring them to life with separate environmental scenes. Along with this, you’ll need to get all the scenes running in Unity to create a video, and you’ll need to submit an article detailing your creation projects. The art assets created must all be done by you, and they cannot be something you designed previously.
Judges for the contest include Wright himself, Pixar artist Matt Jones, Disney illustrator Bill Robinson, and Journey game designer Robin Hunicke.
