In my blog entry yesterday, I offered an introduction to the Emergence online game I've been working on with Tim Lenoir, Casey Alt, and Harrison Lee. Today, Casey posted our initial Emergence game trailer. This visual introduction to the game should give you a sense of some of the features and story elements I alluded to in my longer post. The clip features images by Takayoshi Sato of Virtual Heroes, an animated game logo by Casey Alt, and a small piece of the sci-fi narrative I've been writing for the game. Harrison Lee who has developed many of the gameplay concepts provides a voice-over. When we gather more funding, we hope to have something that offers more of a sense of what the game will actually look like, but this should give you a taste.
