You have logged in to ENHANCE.COMPUTER, the world's most advanced image-enhancement software.
Our crime-predicting AI has detected that someone is about to commit an offense against the law. The only way to stop it is to find a secret 4-letter code hidden in a photograph of the scene.
Use ENHANCE.COMPUTER by speaking out loud with your voice. You can give verbal commands such as "MOVE UP", or "ZOOM IN", or "LET'S ENHANCE".
When you find the secret code, you must announce, "THE CODE IS ____" before time runs out. Our national security is at risk, and only you can save us.
ENHANCE.COMPUTER is a cyberpunk voice controlled game made by Nicole He as a commission for Artworld Videogames.
This game is an homage to the classic science fiction "zoom and enhance" trope, exemplified in this video. The game also plays with themes of surveillance and techno-dystopianism.
Interface design and animation by Barron Webster, music by Thomas Ferriere, and additional writing by Kwame Akosah. Photos are from Flickr CC0.
