How about a fast-paced game where the action gradually increased the more
you played it so that the action never appeared to slow but your perception
of time became faster and faster. Perhaps we could add transhuman
principles into this game. Hmmm, I'm going to think about this one because
designing 'creative interactive entertainment' aka computer/video games
(hopefully VR, which is why I want to learn rendering) is what I'm
intending on doing as a career.
