STOCKHOLM March 26, 2020 Resolution Games - creator of Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs; Bait!; Acron: Attack of the Squirrels!; as well as the first third-party-developed Magic Leap game, Angry Birds FPS: First Person Slingshot - needs your help to solve a crime of interplanar proportions. The studio’s whodunit detective game, Glimt: The Vanishing at the Grand Starlight Hotel, is available today for free for Magic Leap 1.


“As a studio, we’re excited to continue exploring different mediums and expanding our games catalogue with our third title in augmented reality,” said Tommy Palm, CEO of Resolution Games. “This is our second game for Magic Leap, and a lot has progressed with the platform since our first title launched. We’re seeing more potential than ever for augmented reality games and look forward to continuing to innovate in the space.” 


In the game, created as part of the Magic Leap Independent Creator Program, the player takes on the role of a top detective in the psychic division of the Warlock Investigation Bureau. An unconfirmed number of guests have been reported missing from the Grand Starlight Hotel, and all reports point to illegal magical activity. It’s up to the player in the role of detective to use his or her psychic powers to aid the investigation and find out what really happened that night.


In what is only possible with the magic of spatial computing, the play area and scenes come to life throughout the game in a dollhouse-like environment. To find the culprit, the player must interact and engage with the different scenes, solving a series of different cases by playing out the scenarios throughout the hotel leading up to, during and after the mysterious disappearances. Having a keen eye and an investigator’s intuition will help fill the gaps to get one step closer to learning the source of the incredible and dangerous magic responsible for these vanishings.
