Editor’s Review
So, the premise is simple – destroy the room and see how much damage you caused, and how much insurance would cover.  Great demo idea for how insurance companies might use the technology.

However, this demo falls far short in implementation. The menus and model graphics are extremely basic and low resolution.  Picking up the laptop and dropping it doesn’t seem to cause damage.  Not at all sure why there’s an octopus in the house, but he/she is strangely very flammable and once on fire, poor octopus is very good at lighting everything else on fire.  Dropping the octopus back in the aquarium doesn’t even quench the fire. Strangely funny.

 

Publisher’s Description
This game is a project from HackZurich 2016, developed for the Microsoft Hololens. It’s a prototype for Axa insurances and Microsoft.

Play around in a room full of things that can burn, get drenched and have fun with the Microsoft octopus. Try out what different insurances of Axa would have reimbursed (as we all know, you set the couch on fire by accident only). Try to maximize the destroyed or reimbursed value in 1 minutes of crazy playtime.
