Research

User research impacted the brainstorming, design, and development of Hololens.

Key points from our research we used to design the experience:

Visual & Sounds

Our research respondents said sounds immerse them the most in their games. Our focus in Holoween is engaging the audience with sound and limited visuals. Given that this experience is presented in AR, we found having less makes it a bit more terrifying as you can not predict what's going to happen next.

Unique Stories

We found our users crave unique stories, which has greatly impacted our gameplay and narrative structure. Holoween is designed with an original story that's bound to keep you intrigued.

Time

Our research respondents said they typically spend less than an hour playing games (on multiple platforms). Given these demographics we created Holoween so it doesn’t take too much time, but sill provides the thrills and chills of a true horror experience.
