4D Golden Eye
A First Person Shooter where the rooms and buildings are in a 4-Dimensional geometry
The tessearact (see link) is a 4-Dimentsional analog of a 3-dimensional cube. Computers can calculate their properties and simulate them. As creatures who natively understand 3-dimensional geometry, we can only understand 4-dimensional objects through their projection into 3-D space.
This game is
a first-person shooter ala Golden Eye, where you play a 3-D person running around in a 4-D building. Each room is a hypercube, hyper-rectangle, etc.
It's a challenge at first, trying to chase, shoot, and sneak up on your enemy, but over time, with trial and error, you will develop a sense of 4-dimensional projections well enough to play competitively.

||We've been deep into 4D games before around here. See linky.
||Just arm the 4D extrusion part of your own body. And your
good to go.
||It was possible in Descent using an editor to create
custom maps in which 4D-shaped maps like hypercubes
were entirely possible. Flew through them many times.
Or maybe it was just one time in 5D space...
||I am a pacifist so I would rather see 4D ocean rescue!
||you toss lifesavers to people at other geometries and try to rescue them as they risk floating away. The more you rescue the more you win.
