While I usually focus on released and playable games here, I’d like to highlight this prototype with a lot of promise. Here’s Against the Wall, a first-person platforming-puzzle game about climbing a wall. It’s a surreal and acrophobic experience, strange, perilous, and inviting all the same.
The alpha build for Against the Wall can be downloaded here.
The game involves pulling pillars out of the wall through a magic wand, allowing you to jump on top of them as platforms. Although all the pillars are randomly generated, you have to understand how far and how high you jump. The serenity of correctly calculating your moves as you ascend farther up the wall is an intriguing experience.
