Extant is a free-roaming survival audio game, completely based on sound.
Creative Heroes released a tech demo for Extant in October 2010, a few days prior to Halloween. The demo allows players to wander freely through an atmospheric, monster-infested world, exploring sites and buildings while fighting off zombies and collecting pickups such as ammo and medicine.
Extant is based on concepts developed back in 2002 for an audio game prototype named "Dark - A Garden Wander", created by Sander Huiberts, Richard van Tol and Hugo Verweij. One example of such a concept is Moby, the protagonists dog, who can guide the player to certain areas and objects using an innovative command menu.
Through this tech demo the design possibilities are explored of an audio-only game space that is intuitive, immersive and easy to navigate. Extant currently is in tech demo state, but will be developed later.
