iOS Game of the Day: Specimen

Here’s an addictive little iOS game for all you designers out there who feel you have a discerning eye for colour! You can test yourself to see just how accurate those eyeballs of yours really are.

Specimen was created by three New Yorkers; Designer Erica Gorochow, developer Sal Randazzo, and programmer Charlie Whitney. The museum-led incubator known as NEW INC acted as a home base for the project and it sounds like the community there really helped foster Specimen’s development.

The team now has plans to be able to provide users with data about the way they see colour. If you wanna check it out, you can download Specimen for free.

(I’ve found that I do better when I squint at the screen.)

Filled with colourful and chaotic images that blur the line between cute and creepy, what began as a commission for Japanese magazine Them, has turned into something of an ongoing experiment thanks to London-based publishers Katie Bagley and Ferry Gouw of New World International.
