Panoramic Worlds HD - explore beautiful worlds!

THE THREE VERSIONS OF PANORAMIC WORLDS (CLASSIC, SD, & HD)

Explore beautiful, imaginative virtual fantasy worlds!

My name is Matthew L. Hornbostel, and Panoramic Worlds is one of my creative personal projects.

It began as a simple flash virtual tour in late 2009, now known as Panoramic Worlds Classic, which was discontinued in 2011 while I began researching better software and game engines that would provide a better experience for players.

After considering several engines, I settled on Unity 3d, one of the most powerful, flexible, and user-friendly game development toolsets currently available. Ever since that decision, I've been steadily developing a realtime 3d version of the old virtual tour, which also includes more polished graphics and animation, immersive audio, and occasional puzzles integrated into the gameworld, as well as a bit of narrative content.

This realtime 3d version is still in development and will be released sometime in early-mid 2015, in two forms: SD and HD

The SD version will stream over the internet in the Unity Web Player, for free. The HD version is an offline version that can be played without internet access, and with higher graphics settings available, aimed at players with high-end PCs and Macs. The HD version will be priced at $1.99.

Both the SD and HD versions will be periodically updated with new, free content following release, but the Flash version has no more updates planned.
