A downloadable room for Windows, macOS, and Linux

A small space. There are things that move and things that grow. You float slowly around it. There are no objectives. 

Originally for ProcJam 2015. Released as a fragment for Fragment Jam 2019.


WASD / Arrows / 2456 - steer up/down/left/right
QE / 13 - roll counter/clockwise
Shift - level out ("return upright")

Things to do:

Is it less fun if you don't define/discover these for yourself naturally?

Drift between swelling pillars.

Pass through gaps in branches, upward through a tree.

Slip between the vertebrae.

Chase the birds.

End up crooked.

Decide a different direction should be "up." Change your mind later.

Go far away and turn back.

Wonder what it means.

Steer towards a solid object and take your hands off the controls.

Quit whenever you want.

Ambient and puts you in an almost zen like state. It would have been nice with some interactivity instead of everything being static. The ambient sounds was nice addition instead of everything just being quiet. The turning was VERY snappy and removed you from the nice zen state and made it really clunky to move. Very interesting idea indeed.

i find this very relaxing

also I like the idea of contorlling your direction and orientation but not your speed - you will get where you want eventually and it's up to you to choose what the journey will be
