Future Of Gaming Exhibit at D.I.C.E. Summit 2014

The Challenge

The creative crew over at iam8bit curated an art gallery for the D.I.C.E. Summit Awards by asking video game luminaries what they thought about the future of gaming. These quotes were then distributed to 10 artists as inspiration to create their own interpretation of that quote, using various art mediums like drawing, animation, and tech. Two Bit Circus was selected to be one of the 10 participating artists — challenge accepted!

Our Quote Inspiration

Our quote comes from video game luminary Keiji Inafune, video game producer and illustrator, who is best known for his work as the illustrator and co-designer of the Mega Man character. He says,”Game-life blending. Games won’t be limited to the digital aspect, they will blend with our lifestyles to the point that you won’t think of them as games. Washing your face and brushing your teeth could be a part of a bigger, grander game world. I look forward to games really turning the standard definition of what they are on its ear.”

The Magic Mirror

We designed a custom game-life blending experience using our Magic Mirror game. D.I.C.E. is one of the most prestigious game conferences, and we’re honored to have been asked to participate and have this talented group of people interact with and enjoy our work.

The Magic Mirror is the funhouse mirror of the future! You’ll be amazed as your face magically transforms before your very eyes. Blur the line between reality and the digital wonderland as you are shape shifted, recast, time warped, and masked with a new identity through this alter ego reflection game.

Art Synopsis for D.I.C.E.

The emotional state of one impacts the emotional environment for all. This installation uses the Magic Mirror to capture the raw emotional reflection of each individual who gazes into it. Emotions impact the overall score, creating an incentive to influence the community’s emotional space, be it for better or for worse. This is the game of life, after all.
