OKO, what is it?
OKO is a puzzle video game for iPad, designed as a hypnotic and mesmerizing journey around the planet.
It invites one to travel through satellite images taken from the NASA database, and rich otherworldly soundscapes composed from recordings taken aboard space shuttles.
OKO – already a success
A «beta» version of the game already exists. It was developed in 2012 at HEAD Geneva in the context of a Master of Media Design and is currently available on the Apple store.
This «beta» version has been very successful and today has international recognition. The game has won the best iPad app for 2012 prize, awarded by Swisscom. OKO was also presented at the exhibition «Game Lounge» in the «House of Switzerland» during the 2012 London Olympics and in 2013 at «Game Gazer» in San Francisco, Bangalore and Goa, at «Lift13» Geneva, at Mirage Festival in Lyon, at «UCLA Game Art Festival» in Los Angeles, and at «Sonar Festival» in Barcelona.
