I’m interested in games with impossible geometry, and I was hoping to tap into the collective knowledge of the forum-goers to find more. Games with impossible geometry, or forced perspective, are those that allow you to act as if objects are on the same plane as long as they line up from your 2D point of view, even if their 3D arrangement means they are nowhere near each other.
I’ll start with the games I have, in case anyone else is looking. All on Steam unless otherwise specified.
- Monument Valley (best in class for gameplay, but the developers refuse to put it on PC because they feel that if you’re not playing it on a touch screen device, you are “not experiencing the game as they intended” and therefore it’s just better if you don’t experience it at all. To this, I wildly wave my middle fingers at the developers; they know exactly where they can cram that pompous nonsense).
- Back to Bed
- The Bridge
- Evo Explores
- The Gardens Between (not very much impossible geometry in this one, but there is an instance or two. More than most games can claim!)
- Perfect Angle (I actually just have the demo, the full game has rather mixed reviews and I wasn’t so blown away by the demo)
- Zasa - An AI Story
On my watch list:
- Manifold Garden
Any others you know about?
