10th International Games and Playful Media Festival


Candid - preview

by Laurenz Riklin (Austria)

Genre: Communication Toy

Imagine a more fluid space of online communication and gathering, that lets friends and family hang out in a more natural way. Like a home party, where you can bop around freely from group to group and talk and listen directly to who you want to.

This is Candid, a playful, spatial video chat tool for more natural online communication. You can move freely through 3D worlds together while your webcams are displayed directly on avatars. Spatial audio makes it possible to hear people close to you but not get distracted from others that are further away. Together you can fluidly walk around, explore the world together and hang out candidly with whoever you want to.

Make your own virtual home parties, family gatherings, community meetings, intimate workshops, play sessions, ... !
