Playmind Debuts The InnerFriend at PAX East 2018

Press Release: 

PLAYMIND will be in attendance at PAX East 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (BCEC) from April 5 – April 8, 2018 with an exclusive two-part demo of The InnerFriend. Attendees can go hands-on with the game and conquer their fears in Booth #17115.

Independent game developer and interactive digital media studio PLAYMIND is excited to reveal today their premier psychological horror The InnerFriend, announced for release on Windows PC, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One this September. The InnerFriend unlocks the doorway to the subconscious, inviting players to conquer their childhood fears in an emotional and narrative-driven experience to save the child within from nightmares come to life. Unlike traditional horror games, The InnerFriend relies on atmosphere to create tension and tells a unique story about seeing the world through the eyes of an innocent child.

The InnerFriend is a surrealist representation of memories and fears inspired by the works of psychologist Carl Jung, the concept of katabasis — the descent into one’s own self, 80s horror pop culture staples such as Poltergeist and the filmography of Stanley Kubrick. The game explores complex emotional themes and the childhood psychology surrounding coping mechanisms to overcome traumatic experiences. The InnerFriend’s lead designer and writer Sabrina Calvo is an award-winning author and child educator.

Led by a mysterious Shadow, journey through a surreal world inspired by the psychology of childhood fears like the fear of abandonment and the fear of hospitals, which manifest themselves as nightmares. Dive into a subconscious universe to relive the Shadow’s childhood memories, collecting various artifacts to bring back to the Bedroom and slowly rebuilding it as a protective safe haven. As you journey deeper into the subconscious, the gruesome materialized beings that inhabit this world draw ever closer as they fight to protect their very existence – imagined, yet quite powerfully manifested. Can you save the inner child and decipher the mystery?

“The idea for The InnerFriend has been in my head for decades now so I’m thrilled to see it finally coming to life,” said Emmanuel Sévigny, founder of PLAYMIND. “Although we’ve all had very different pasts and childhoods, our experiences — particularly our fears and nightmares — are actually quite similar in a way. I’m eager to see how The InnerFriend will resonate with people from different backgrounds once they finally get a chance to check out the game for themselves.”

The InnerFriend features a rich and abstract visual environment supported by an immersive ambient soundscape and a cinematic soundtrack that enhances immersion and storytelling. Movement, imagery and music are the main ways for the player to interact with the Shadow, their guide throughout the descent into the uncharted parts of the subconscious mind. There are many obstacles and puzzles to solve, themed after childhood games but made far more sinister.

Step Into Immersive Audio With VR at PAX East 2018

Press Release: 

Audio company Echobox has just announced a collaboration with ROTU Entertainment, which plans to integrate Echobox’s unique titanium tech into its latest VR experience. To this end, Echobox’s new Nomad earphones promise to offer gamers traditionally accustomed to over-ear headphones a new “in-ear” high-fidelity audio experience. This will grant gamers all the sound without any accompanying bulk, a feature long sought after by the gaming community. “The degree of realism these earphones offer is unprecedented,” according to Echobox Director of Growth Josh McKenzie. “If a virtual grenade goes off near you in a game, you’ll swear an actual grenade went off near you in real life.”

The collaboration with ROTU Entertainment has all the signs of mutual benefit, as the company’s acronym stands for “Rhythm of the Universe.” According to ROTU Entertainment’s CEO Jason Parks, “Players will use audio technology to engage with musical symbols,  instruments, and theory as these elements transform into characters, creatures, and ecosystems within a captivating and immersive other-worldly environment.”

Echobox is no stranger to the concepts of sound and transformation. In recent years, the company has garnered substantial attention from the tech media for its innovative use of aerospace-grade titanium in consumer audio equipment as well as its above average presentation of affordable sound quality, with outlets like CNET, PC Magazine and Digital Trends offering high praise. For instance, while writing about Echobox earphones, Gear Patrol Magazine reviewer Tucker Bowe referred to them as “HiFi Headphones for the Masses.”

Echobox’s announcement to venture into the gaming industry with ROTU arrives ahead of the company’s elaborate showcase at the 2018 PAX East in Boston.
Speaking once again about the company’s progress before the event, McKenzie said that Echobox has recently rededicated itself to preventing gimmicks from intruding on the consumer experience. “We’ve seen a lot of people coming out with impressive new tech; however, these new products seem to be missing the most important feature of an earphone – having great sound quality,” McKenzie said. “We have decided to take a minimalist approach, shrinking down the unnecessary extras. Everything starts with quality and expands from there.”

Come by booth #24098 and experience a whole new way to play VR. Put yourself in the game! Visit upgrademysound.com for more info.

Image Comics: We Believe In Character

Comic artists don’t just translate scripts: they build characters. From choreographing the most subtle facial tics and body language to designing entire wardrobes, illustrators are master actors of ink on page. Giving shape to entire casts, they carve new souls on a monthly basis. The creators on this panel specialize in character design, from Leila del Duca’s medieval romanticism on SLEEPLESS to Jeremy Haun’s rugged post-apocalyptic fantasy chic in THE REALM, and Tula Lotay’s fashion-forward covers. Come see these shapers discuss their process, including Annie Wu and Jen Bartel as they preview their upcoming Image projects, DEAD GUY FAN CLUB and BLACKBIRD.

Sunday, April 8, 2018 @ 10:45 – 11:45 AM in Room S403

Image Comics: We Believe In Drama

Writers channel the crises we face everyday through layers of fiction, allowing readers to dissect universal struggles through a vibrant, askew lens. Though comics may catalyze new worlds overflowing with imagination, creators ground that surrealism in drama and catharsis. Join a panel of stellar scribes including Kyle Higgins (THE DEAD HAND), Gerry Duggan (ANALOG), Tee Franklin (BINGO LOVE), Tini Howard (HACK/SLASH: RESURRECTION) and some very special guests as they discuss the friction that gave way to their latest works.
