Child of Eden Mood Trailer

YouTube video

Did you know if you play this game while listening to Pink Floyd’s Any Colour You Like and eating Brandon’s Portal 2 blueberry cake that you’ll understand the meaning of life?

It’s true.

But that’s only for the Kinect version. Everyone else won’t know what the hell is going on.

UbiSoft says:

Child of Eden thrusts the player into the center of a battle to save Project Lumi, a mission to reproduce a human personality inside Eden, a futuristic version of the Internet and the archive of all human memories. As the project nears completion, the archive is invaded by an unknown virus and the player’s mission is to save Eden from the virus to restore hope and peace. Under the direction of the renowned game creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi, Child of Eden is a multi-sensory shooter that will send players diving into a kaleidoscopic matrix of synchronized music and mind-blowing visuals that will usher forth a truly landmark game experience.

Child of Eden will release in the US on June 14th for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. The PS3 version has a scheduled release time frame of September 2011.


Ubi gets bonus points for the phrase kaleidoscopic matrix of synchronized music. That’s a first.

  1. A decade later, we have a truly immersive “hands-free” (to roam) edition of the PS2 classic Rez.

    Game Girl Advance wrote what I believe to be the definitive article on the title:

    I love the Synesthesia reference (a REAL thing btw), as well as the graphic updates.

    My favorite Synesthete to date is Daniel Tammet, who can “feel” and “see” numbers.

    Back on topic… where, oh where, is the “optional accessory” this time around?


  2. I loved Rez…back in 2002. Times have changed though.

    When Rez came out in 2001 it was the perfect coda to a decade that saw the blooming of electronic music and digital culture. But the world has moved on from candy colored ravetastic glow stick waving house music. Children of Eden, if this trailer is any indication, has not.

    I could be wrong, but I get the feeling this game was developed in a vacuum where electro, daft punk, IDM, and trip hop never happened.

  3. Yeah, I think I’m with you on this one. This just makes me think of all those ridiculous rave flyers…much like Rez did. I don’t like feeling like it’s the 1990s again. I never did ecstacy and the only rave I ever went to I left early because I couldn’t stand the people there. I don’t like hippies, no matter if they’re listening to the Dead or identity-less house music.

    Now, if someone would just do a Daft Punk video game…that’s something I could completely support.
