We’ve found a few games you can play on paper using the polygonal presentations of surfaces we looked at in Session 1 (the easiest and most obvious is noughts and crosses), but those aren’t terribly exciting. What we are excited about is forthcoming game Miegakure, which promises to allow us to navigate four spatial dimensions (and, of course, use a fifth time dimension to do it). Here’s a video explaining the idea behind it:
Miegakure hasn’t been released yet but hopefully we’ll get to run Strange Spaces next year and use it to add some intuition to this hard-to-visualize subject.
Incidentally, we’ve also been enjoying Monument Valley lately, but that has more to do with perspective illusions and projective geometry — a subject of one of our other courses, for which we hope to have an online coursebook available later in the spring:
