Microsoft partnered with Asobo Studio to bring Fragments to life in a way that uniquely showcases the capabilities of Microsoft HoloLens, and inspires developers to think about their own creations in new ways. Fragments is an interactive crime drama for Microsoft Hololens, where you follow the clues to solve a mystery that take place in your real-world space.

Today, Microsoft published a new video to show how the Fragments development team used the unique features of the HoloLens to immerse players in the action, putting them directly in the center of the story. Watch it above.

You become the detective in a high-tech crime thriller. Experience compelling new possibilities for storytelling and gameplay when life-sized characters are aware of your presence, share your real space, and interact with you in mixed reality. Spatial mapping allows holographic clues to be dynamically placed in whichever room you play.
