Inside Man 

Virtual Reality, First Person Exploration Game

A SPATIAL JOURNEY

Inside Man is a psychological exploration journey in Virtual Reality. The game is a visual interpretation of an acute episode of confusion when a temporary disjunction occurs between one’s mind and the outside world. The title refers to the game’s multiple levels of interpretation: the player travels inside their own mind while the enclosure in the main level is, literally, the inside of a human body.

EXPERIMENTAL ENVIRONMENTS

In the main level the player travels through a seemingly endless organic landscape. The player will first struggle to understand the physical contour of his own body as experienced from the inside. This level represents an evolution from crawling (first level) to jumping but interaction is still limited. This is in contrast with the next level, where vigorous physical movement and a release of energy is required to regain consciousness.
