Amygdala

By RaMa

It’s an interactive audio-experience in which the player has to try and navigate through a 3D environment on sound alone.

A fictional organisation called IRIN (International Research Institute for Neuropsychology) initiated a project called Project Amygdala. The purpose of this project is to make it possible to take a look inside the person’s memories. It’s more of a ‘listen’ than a ‘look’ though because the user can only experience these memories in the form of sound.

The player takes place in a specially designed chair called The Explorer. The chair has a controller on each armrest. These controllers can be used to navigate through the world. The player gets some headphones to put on and, for optimal concentration, a blindfold. There’s no way to win or lose.  There is only the freedom to explore a digital landscape full of memories.
