My brother and I are huge fans of director Christopher Nolan. Besides his Batman films, his mind-blowing film The Prestige convinced us that smart science-fiction still exists. The science-fiction film Inception, about a group of thieves stealing from dreams, opens nation-wide July 16th. Over the next few weeks, we'll be doing daily posts on the development of the film.
PART 3 of 12

As part of their viral marketing strategy, Warner Bros launched an online game called Inception: Mind Crime. As it progressed through four stages, fans could unlock and reveal all sorts of hidden goodies. Here's how Nolanfans describes it:
This is “Mind Crime,” a maze game where the player can select a starting and ending position on a grid and then draw a solution path to connect the two. When the path is complete, selecting the “Play” button will start the game after creating more maze paths and dead ends. Your maze paths (initially drawn on paper) is converted into downtown city-streets. Once the games starts, you’re able to control your character and navigate through this maze city. Along the way, you’ll find that there are other people wondering about the city with green circles drawn around them. You’ll soon learn dislike these people. Once your character steps into a green circle, a siren sound is heard, the circle turns yellow, your health beings to drop, and that person starts chasing you. If you get too close to them, the circle turns to red. Avoid these bad guys, people.
The game is very cool and gives some idea what it's like for the characters to poke around in dreams and get hunted by "Subconcious security." This gives the movie more of an action feel which is what Nolan is trying to get across. Mind Crime is a fun ride.

NOTE: This game requires the Unity Web Player browser plug-in.

Have you played Mind Crime? Is it your favorite movie tie-in game?
