The Design of 'HoloVista': Crafting Mechanics for Immersive Storytelling


HoloVista is an award-winning immersive hidden object game, whose narrative unfolds through the lens of a near-future social media app. But there was no game concept at its inceptiononly a desire to tell mixed-reality stories about technology and culture, and the challenge of finding the best structure for doing so. Lead Designer Scott Jon Siegel walks through the collaborative design process that led to the new team's award-winning first title, from their earliest meetings in a San Francisco coffee shop, to the design's final mid-production, mid-pandemic pivots as they approached its 2020 release.
