Dyad is an abstract racing/shooter/puzzle hybrid where players move forward by manipulating other vessels on the track. Dyad also explores the mind state of the player - the game is designed to create a strong sense of flow, upon which it offers different contemplative approaches. The topics of contemplation, called Mantras, create a thought-based metagame on top of the audio-visual gameplay.
An independently-developed project created by Shawn McGrath, Dyad is made for play on PlayStation 3 consoles. It has also been demonstrated at festivals using "The Machine", a device built for full immersion into the Dyad experience.
