Atom Republic's Atom Universe on PS4

Hi, we wanted to share with you some footage of the Atom Universe game running on PS4! I know you all want to play it yourselves on PS4, but this will take several weeks to go through the submission and approval process with Sony. Until then, at least you can see that the game runs fine on the PS4

It may not be apparent on the video, but the only noticeable differences I can spot are; some textures look a bit more blurry and there are a few artifacts, but nothing we can't fix. But overall, it looks pretty similar to the PC version.

Help us answer these questions and more, by participating in our forum polls today! Our newest poll regarding Virtual Reality can be found HERE

We need to have your input on our polls in order to make Atom Universe successful for everyone, so please take a moment to participate.

*Note: No forum membership required to participate in polls, and it takes very little time.

GUI (Graphical User Interface) 2 - "Environment Interaction"

GUI (Graphical User Interface): Abbreviated GUI (pronounced GOO-ee). A program interface that takes advantage of the computer's graphics capabilities to make the program easier to use.

In Atom Universe, Graphical User Interface (GUI) is a way to interact with your avatar. One of the GUI in Atom Universe is the "Environment Interaction" icon, which allows you to apply context-sensitive interactions: sit on a bench, lean against a wall, etc...

Save this date! We will start our KickStarter campaign on Monday, March 16th... Please spread the word! smile emoticon\
