Available for both Windows and OSX.

Aboard The Lookinglass

You come round with a hazy memory and a voice crackling down your intercom, "Alice… Alice can you hear me". You recognise the voice… you just can't remember, who, or where. Panic rises, but the voice is calming, reassuring. You have a mission. You're part of a rescue team. Yes, it all makes sense.

Peering through your left hand you see another world, or time. The past.

Your right hand holds the future.

Looking round, you see a screen, hissing and fractured. "This must have once opened the door", you think. Once. In the past. Raising your left hand, a working screen slides into view. You press it in the past. The door murmurs, then pops open in the present.

A big thanks to the Leap folk which answered all my technical questions, and everyone else who helped run the jam. Also thanks to Dan Da Rocha for lending me his Oculus Rift, and Tony Phipps and Chris Rowe for letting me crunch at their house.

If you are having framerate issues please launch the app with a lower resolution or graphics quality setting. You can manually bring up the app settings menu by holding the [OPTION] key on your keyboard when selecting your executable from the App Switcher window.
