Updated playable game available!


!!DOWNLOAD GAME HERE!!

PhaseShift is a 2.5D Cinematic platformer action/adventure featuring unique stylized 3D retro pixel art.
In the spirit of titles such as "Another World", "Braid", "Oddworld", or "Limbo" - PhaseShift offers an exciting new take on a classic genre!

Our game tells the story of Dr. Hoffman, a brilliant chemist who, as a result of a breakthrough discovery - accidentally synthesizes a compound which activates latent receptors within the human brain. Eventually, this discovery allows him access to a mysterious alien realm, in which he finds that a superior race of beings has been observing and shaping the course of humanity since it's very beginning.
Join Dr. Hoffman as he unravels the true nature of reality, and help him reveal the secrets of this strange new hidden dimension.

PhaseShift is an atmospheric side-scroller featuring traditional cinematic platforming gameplay - but with an innovative VR twist: "Phase-Shifting"!
This ground-breaking platformer mechanic brings completely new gameplay possibilities to platforming, by letting players peer into simultaneously existing parallel dimensions using an innovative 'looking-glass' feature.

    Thanks for the kind words, everyone! Soon we'll be revealing some of the gameplay and have plenty more to share about this title (and the other games we have been working on outside of this one). We're having a lot of fun creating PhaseShift, and we can't wait for people to give it a try!

    I've uploaded a new screenshot for the weekend showing a peek into the alien realm. Enjoy!

    Found a concept shot of an asset that may or may not end up in the actual game. Thought some folks might enjoy it!

    Love the old school Lucasarts style of this look. Make me think of Maniac mansion and Monkey island, some of my favorites.

    I'm a huge fan of classic old-school adventure games, so that's like the best compliment ever. Excitingly, the game is only looking better and better everyday too! Here's a newer (but somewhat outdated) screenshot:

    Thanks for the kind words from everybody! All the positive support has definitely been motivating us to work even harder to make this a great game for you all. It's been a TON of work building this from scratch all within 1 month, but we're having a blast developing this project!

    We're working on finishing up the gameplay and video for M4 - but we also have many more features and ideas we would love to implement post game-jam as well. In short; our release next week will likely just be a small demo - or a glimpse of whats to come in the full-title. Looking forward to putting it out 'in the wild' and getting feedback from everyone soon!

    Wow! Over 6,000 views! Thanks for all the support!! :D

    We are currently hard at work at finishing the last environment you'll get to explore and polishing up our lens mechanic which I might say is looking pretty shiny!!

    Here's a sneak peak at the upcoming Egyptian Realm!

    I really look forward to trying this one out. I'm a note 4 lollipop so I'll have to wait, but this is high on my want list.
