"Cell: emergence" Extended Gameplay Video Introduces "Massively Reactive Gameplay"

New Life Interactive, LLC, announced today the release of an extended gameplay video for its first title, "Cell: emergence" (PC, XBLIG). The video shows off unusual game mechanics based on "dynamic voxels" -- voxels which contain not just visual data but also game-state.

These mechanics layer arcade-style action on top of a "cellular automata" simulation of the human body. Fast-paced yet tactical, the resulting game challenges the player's mind as well as his reflexes.

"Massively reactive" describes game mechanics that leverage massive processing power for game interactions, rather than just visuals. New Life Interactive believes that massively reactive gameplay will be a fruitful area of innovation for the next generation of games, which will be able to leverage GPGPUs for much more than just visuals.
