Description

Parallax is a first-person puzzle game with two overlapping worlds. Weave back and forth between black and white as you try to be in the right place, in the right dimension, at the right time. Use switches, boosters and gravity to help you reach the exit. Can you conquer every mind-bending level?

History

Parallax began as a project for a university course. The developers, Zi Ye and Jesse Burstyn thought the game idea was cool, and decided (with the school's blessings) to take the project further outside of school. After getting some press coverage at IGF 2012 and being Greenlit on Steam Greenlight, the project was put on hiatus for years due to life and work reasons. In late 2014, the game was once again back on track. Parallax is now on Steam! Woot!

Features

  • 32 mind-bending, interdimensional puzzles that will test the limits of your spatial reasoning.
  • Switches, boosters, lasers and gravity manipulation will make your challenge even greater.
  • A beautifully minimalistic monochromatic art style.
  • Cool, atmospheric music by Derris-Kharlan.
  • Steam achievements!
