Mirror’s Edge Recreation (May Cause Super-Cool Motion Sickness)

By Casey Lynn

Mirror’s Edge, the EA game that sold over a million copies in just a few months, features a first person perspective that makes it pretty stylistically distinctive, and lots of running/jumping/sliding that gives it a kind of frantic feel. This video recreates that style/feel in real life, with the creator holding the camera in one hand as he runs around all over the place.

Somehow it’s a little more dizzying in the flesh than in pixels… if you felt a little queasy when watching The Blair Witch Project you might want to give this one a pass.

  1. The whole video is great. Like sports, I'm regularly amazed how people can get such amazing and consistent movement out of their bodies.

    I'm not even that old, and after some of his jumps I'm sure my knees would be shot!
