If you’ve ever felt that there’s not enough zombie-killing action in your day-to-day life, Finnish developer Next Games has your back with The Walking Dead: Our World.
The game combines the zombie hordes of the wildly popular TV show with Pokémon Go style augmented reality gaming. Unlike Niantic’s faithful implementation of the monster-catching sim, which can see some users tramping kilometres to track down a single measly Pidgey, Our World promises that you’ll be able to “fight walkers on the streets, in the park, on your sofa, wherever and whenever you feel like it”, with weapons ranging from swords to fully-automatic firearms.

The Creators Project sat down with Thea Baumann to talk wearable technology, augmented reality, and fashion for the future. Alongside anime, computer games, and cyberpunk, the creative technologist draws inspiration from the post-90s internet generation and the way that new technologies are shaping social consciousness.

All The Delicate Duplicates is a narrative game that toys with the concept of time, offering a series of windows into the lives of its characters. A digital fiction about the relationship between a father and a daughter that is strained by arcane objects that they’ve inherited from Aunt Mo.
