Anyone who knows me knows how extremely excited I was for the HoloLens, the Mixed Reality device being developed by Microsoft. When I saw the live demonstrations of the device, I knew I had to have it.
All that being said, as excited as I was about the HoloLens, I was excited about it for reasons beyond my usual. HoloLens has tremendous potential in the fields of science, medicine, construction, education, and engineering. I was not really sure how it would fare as a gaming device, however. It seemed likely that casual games could find a home there, but could a device that overlays holograms onto the real world be home to a deep narrative experience?
Well, now I’ve played the game Fragments on HoloLens, and I am convinced.
