UNBINARY is a VR puzzle adventure, with a 100% hand-painted, interactive and colorful world. In the game you’ll meet Webby, an AI made of data collected from human behavior and a candidate to rule planet Earth. The player will wear three masks with different characteristics and discover how the inhabitants of the environment simulated by the super (and also sarcastic) Artificial Intelligence will react. Your mission is to investigate: Is she ready to fulfill her purpose?
“As the player progresses through the simulations imposed by the super AI Webby, he will encounter progressively challenging puzzles, funny interactions, and thought-provoking situations.”, said Egon Ribeiro, Producer of Ludact.
“Painting and animating in VR is very liberating, that’s what motivated this original choice for the production of UNBINARY. We faced many technical challenges, but I think the result reveals that it was worth creating everything by hand within virtual reality.”, added Leandro Teichimann, Art Director of Ludact.
UNBINARY can be played in a seated, standing or room scale area, and with three different options of movement: Continuous, Blink and Shift; allowing both new and experienced players to adjust the gameplay in the way they feel most comfortable.
In order to make the game even more accessible, UNBINARY have English and Portuguese dubbing and subtitles in the following languages: English, Chinese, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Italian, and Deutsch.
- 100% hand-painted in virtual reality, in a futuristic dystopian comic-book inspired visual style.
- The impactful narrative develops as you venture deeper into the story of Webby, a sarcastic and smug Artificial Intelligence.
- 22 Interactive scenarios allow you to delve into Webby’s curious mind in search of problems with her integrity.
- Your appearance changes the way the world reacts: 3 different masks that offer varied physical interactions in VR, and change the way the world reacts to you.
UNBINARY is developed by Ludact (https://ludact.com), a Brazilian veteran game studio founded in 2005 specializing in impactful XR games, with titles published with global organizations as Sesame Workshop, Cartoon Network, UNESCO, and Volkswagen Foundation.
The current mission is to strengthen UNBINARY as our flagship IP, consolidating what we call “critical entertainment”: games that challenge player’s visions of the world while fostering meaningful emotions.
