Romance of Many Dimension

 

Draw a path perpendicular to the 3 dimensions we are familiar with and we journey into the forth dimension. Roam between the landscape in search for the elusive forth dimensional being. This game takes on the unintuitive characteristics of the forth dimension to create the mythology of higher dimensions. As one travels between the dimensions, landscape constantly evolves and changes as different worlds slowly reveal themselves.

A workflow of "4D lofting" consolidate discrete 3D meshes into procedurally generated landscape in Unreal Engine. This game was co-developed with Han Jin.

The four dimensional landscape is created by interpolating several separate meshes together in a database, similar to lofting but along an imaginary dimension. Meshes are sculpted in Blender and 3DMax. Through custom component in Grasshopper, mesh info is passed onto Blueprints in UE in csv format. Surfaces, materials, scripted behaviors and scene lighting are procedurally generated in UE.
