Gua-Le-Ni, or: The Horrendous Parade Has One Crazy Title
Upcoming iPad puzzler enhanced using psychophysiological responses. It all makes sense now, doesn't it?
If you're like us, you probably thought:
"Well, is this game called Gua-Le-Ni or The Horrendous Parade, and why did the developers choose two titles instead of one?"
Answer: the game's full title is in fact "Gua-Le-Ni, or: The Horrendous Parade." Let that sink in. Now imagine telling friends you're about to get your Gua-Le-Ni on.
This very intriguing puzzle game from Double Jungle appears to challenge players to, from what we can tell, combine different animal parts to create entirely new creatures (like a Lob-dor-mel-son), then feed these beasts to affect their speed, among other attributes.
Again, that's merely an educated guess.
What's especially neat about this title is the science behind it. The developers monitored play testers' psychophysiological responses to correlate stress levels and the contraction of facial muscles with in-game performance.
In other words, they studied player reactions to fine tune the game.
Our take? Seems extremely weird, but that's also why we dig the concept.
Gua-Le-Ni, or: The Horrendous Parade should hit the App Store (iPad only) this week, and we'll have a review soon after, providing the game doesn't melt our brains.
