Vector
is an “adrenaline platformer” racing game that
relies upon a unique locomotion technique of swinging your arms
in order to run through an obstacle course. It’s the latest
game from Raw Data developer
Survios
, but with a much more light-hearted stylized art
aesthetic that has a unique mash-up of a game show, extreme
sports, and a competitive racing game with an Sonic-inspired
obstacle course. It’s also a unique combination of active
exercise with a combination of embodied and abstracted gameplay
mechanics.

I had a chance to catch up with Sprint Vector game
designer Andrew Abedian at GDC where we talked about the
mechanics of racing, the internal habits that are being formed
by Survios developers, the intensity of exercise and stamina
required to play the game, achieving flow states, and it’s
potential to evolve into a competitive eSport. It’s a super fun
experience to watch other people play either in a tournament
competition in mixed reality or just as a quirky form of VR
performance art (examples down below).
