The Paracosm project has many innovative ideas in its roots, and one of them is the active use of the progressive VR, AR, and Cross-Reality technologies. In this article, we explain the role of such products on the Paracosm platform.
A bit more technical info on our products is given in the article “Tangle and Hyperledger: Technical Aspects of Caer Sidi”.
The mix of realities
While using some gaming terms, it’s nice to remember that they are… just terms, you know. There is only one reality around us and we experience its various manifestations/dimensions/aspects. Virtual reality is the same part of the general reality, it creates quite substantial feelings and emotions in our life experience. Still, in the gaming industry, the division of realities is a settled tradition, so it’s worth to explain it:
- Virtual Reality takes you away from this world almost totally. Players wear VR headsets and stand in their rooms, but in fact, they may experience wonderful adventures in fantastic worlds.
- Augmented Reality brings some additions to the physical objects around us. Of course, these additions become visible only through some devices, such as special glasses or even usual smartphones.
- Cross-Reality connects objects and events from the real and virtual worlds.
These technologies have the power to expand our gaming experience, bring lots of brave experiments into the gaming culture. That’s why products with VR, AR, and Cross-Reality are so significant for the Paracosm platform.
A portal to multiple paracosms
The site of CaerSidi.net is a place from where you will be able to start exciting journeys to different virtualities. Right now, it’s in development – recently we started Caer Sidi Pre-Sale with virtual items for the future platform.
Through Caer Sidi, players will be able to enter the world of Post Scriptum, a paracosm developed by our team. There will be the collectible token game and MMORPG of Post Scriptum. The first one will have some cross-reality features – connections between the tabletop and online versions. We plan to add the support of VR to the second one.
There also will be products of our partners, such as the game “Altar: the War of Gods”. It’s planned to add features of Cross-Reality and Augmented Reality to this collectible Token Game.
Other games on the Paracosm platform should go through strict control of our team. Before connecting them as a separate paracosm we will check out the general level of their quality. VR, AR, and Cross-Reality games will have some advantages over traditional gaming products, such as a high priority for publishing on the platform – we may choose innovative games first for voting of the Paracosm community.
Focusing on innovative technical solutions is our number one priority for developing various gaming products. Such an attitude gives freedom for the creative imagination of both gamers and game developers.
In cooperation with Iridescent Studio, we are going to create a VR version of our platform – CrossParacosmic VR Hub, which will be a kind of portal to game paracosms and a place for the community to gather and have fun.
The most significant achievements and milestones of the Paracosm project are collected in our regular Paracosm Digests.
