You are walking through a dimly lit hallway. Creaks heard every step makes you wonder if you are actually alone in this place. Suddenly, you notice a speeding blur just out of the corner of your eye. Darkness descends into the place within a split second. The very scarce light source you were carrying cannot help you now.
You hear a faint roar – devilish but playful. You slowly but surely take out the gun out of your pocket. The monster is near – you can feel it. From a distance, you hear rapid steps. They are not human – of that, you can be sure. You take a quick gulp. Gun raised, you ready yourself for what was to come through the door. You count the bullets. Five shots – is that enough to defend yourself from this monstrosity?
Then… your eye goes past the computer screen and into your bedroom window. It is daylight outside. You see people walking around the streets, while an ice cream truck drives past the house. All the fear melts away, as if you were plucked out of the world you were in.
Have you ever had this problem?
Immersion is the key to truly appreciating a video game, but sometimes it can be very hard to retain. With all the distractions that come in today’s modern world, focusing on the screen to keep immersion may be troublesome. That is where Hue Sync comes in.
A Matter of Immersion
PC gaming has been around since the early 80s, and it is stronger than ever today. With the advances in technology, we have seen bigger monitor screens and high resolutions. Not to mention graphics cards that can make you doubt whether what you are seeing is a video game or a snapshot of reality.
While monitors became larger than life, they still were just that – a rectangular screen that contained all the action. Look a few inches outside the screen, and you are back in reality.
Introducing the Hue Sync Experience
Immersion became a great selling point for video games – especially adventure and role-playing types. However, one cannot truly feel ‘immersed’ staring at a screen alone. Hue Sync is a program that taps into the entire room’s lights to synchronize with what you see on the screen. The colors and brightness on the screen affects the lights around you. When your character goes through the dark alleyways, the entire room darkens as well. This keeps a great check on immersion, and now the game not only plays out in the screen, but in the real world as well. With a simple app, you can program all the light sources in your room – or even house for that matter, to replicate what you see on screen.
With this, there is far less discrepancies within the video game’s lighting and the real world’s. You can appreciate the game even more, with the real world lights reacting to the video game’s ambiance, action, and world building.
