Looking more like an art house short film than a video game, 'Harold Halibut' is poised to be the only fully interactive video game in the world that completely abandons 3D digital graphics for physical materials. Using real-world materials like clay, welded metal, wood and textiles, 'Harold Halibut' is a diorama that gamers can control.
As one might guess based on the gameplay footage from the teaser video, the technology behind 'Harold Halibut' leans heavily on stop-motion animation. And while each frame is indeed hand-made with physical materials, the game uses digital technology to string the movements together.
This work-intensive game is still in its development, with a release date set for no earlier than 2018. By that time, it's very possible that consumers will be aching for a more "real" gaming experience than the digital games to which they're accustomed.
