Journey Project Will Determine Child Of Eden Ending
Note: The following may hold a spoiler, depending on whether or not you want to know about the ending of the game in question.
It was one of the more artistically impressive games shown at this year's E3; the unique rhythm shooter from revered designer Tetsuya Mizuguchi's Q Entertainment really turned a lot of heads. It got even more attention when it was dubbed the "spiritual successor" to the cult classic, Rez.
Set to take advantage of the new motion sensing systems for both the PlayStation 3 and Microsoft (PlayStation Move and Kinect respectively), Child of Eden is set to launch some during the first quarter of 2011. And today, Ubisoft made an announcement that only adds to the overall originality: the ending of the game will feature a photo montage of "hundreds of beautiful nature shots, stunning landscape views, and other happy and positive images." Now, while that may not sound particularly original, the twist is that such art will be images produced by the players, not the guys at Q Entertainment.
See, it's called the Journey Project, which actually ties into the game's plot, where players eradicate a virus from a network of computers that just so happen to contain all human knowledge. If you would like to submit photos for consideration, please visit the Child of Eden website and make your contribution before November 20, 2010. Said Mizuguchi:
"The theme of Child of Eden is 'Hope and Happiness' and I want players to experience happy feelings every time they play the game," said Mizuguchi in a statement. "I need your help to convey these positive emotions, so please send us pictures that give you good vibes so we can include them in the ending of the game."
The more we hear about this, the more we just have to try it. This should be a defining game for the blossoming age of more complex motion control.
