Walkies™

The convergence of real-time & cinematic technology has created the opportunity to discover & shape new mediums. A Walkie™ is a hybrid medium combining traits of games (navigable) and film (deterministic content) i.e. a movie you can "walk around in" or navigable motion picture.

 

For Writers

Developing narrative content for navigable spaces presents new technical and conceptual challenges. First, a real-time, deterministic file format needs to be created so you can record, play, pause, and rewind entire worlds like you would a movie. Second, you need to support the author in a multi-narrative workflow. We did both! 

 

Screenwrite

We're using a patented scripting system, voice and gesture input to capture the author's directorial intent.

Simulate

Input is parsed into a set of commands shaping a real-time, AI driven simulation.

Record

All the action is written to a compact, portable binary file format.

Playback

Playback engines read the format and render the experience on any Unity® supported platform. Deterministic content allows for performance gains leveraging multi-threading of ComputeShaders.

Experience

The audience experiences it as movie you can walk around in. To a writer, the medium is an expansive opportunity to screenwrite entire worlds containing multiple intertwined narratives. If you're a writer interested in a new medium follow us on Twitter for news of our first tool release.
