Crossing worlds

Keen and Graev just introduced me to The Eye of Judgment. Thankfully, I don't own a PS3, because I'd be completely obsessed with that game right now. I'm hoping it will eventually make its way to the 360, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

Nothing I've seen has seemed so close to the holographic boardgame in the original Star Wars film (surprisingly, YouTube doesn't have a clip of that scene). The Wii games might also approach that dream, but the PS3 game captures some other element.

How else might a virtual world and the real world be connected in such a visceral way? How might you use the basic technology of The Eye of Judgment to create a fresh game experience?

I'll come back with some ideas of my own later.

  1. The guys over at Penny Arcade had a run at this a couple of months ago. It does look intriguing, although somewhat exploitable.

    I think it's got some interesting gameplay possibilities too. I don't own a Playstation 3 either, so I can't try it. For now 6 consoles are enough out there in the living room.
