Optikammer
May 30, 2016 - Optikammer

Optikammer’s story begins in the early 1800’s when “Philosophical Toys” were a bridge between emerging sciences and popular culture.

Often derived from experiments, they were commercialised as novel and enlightening amusements for adults and children.

Optikammer echoes that spirit. Looking something like a collection of nineteenth century playbills – it's typographic environment acts as a visual scaffolding for the core content – working optical artifacts.

A progression of the idea of an infographic, it integrates dynamic data readouts and player interaction with compelling content to tell its stories more effectively than would ever be possible in a video or printed poster.

Insightful interactivity is a guiding principal for Optikammer

Although it is an unconventional game, or for some not a game at all, it tells stories by playing with things – something not usually possible with linear media such as books and videos.

Each way of interacting makes sense of every piece, while retaining their original form.

  • A side-scrolling parallax platformer comprised of eight core levels.
  • Over two dozen distinct interactive parts with more than fourscore historic playable works contained therein.
  • Gameplay mechanics range from physics simulations to multi-state triggers to fully controllable photo-realistic avatars.

Optikammer is a kind of playable poster or interactive infographic. Rather than being a gimmick, interactivity it is key to discovering the exquisite ingenuity of incredible items that have led to today’s cinema, animation, motion capture, video games and much more...
