An experimental third-person sci-fi game. The player is an astronaut whose multidimensional quest to find an extraterrestrial civilisation is more important than the ultimate destination. They embark on a journey outside of the space-time where they explore the fragments of parallel worlds that have no physical boundaries and limits.

Trivia

The initial inspiration for the development of the game was Zdeněk Burian's illustration (1955) for the "Friends from Hadonoš" short story, which depicts a tiny astronaut standing in front of a mass into which another character is delving.

Visually, the game refers to Salvador Dalí's famous work "Corpus Hypercubus" (1954) depicting Jesus Christ crucified on a net of tesseract (hypercube).
There are no strict instructions on how to play the game. The player needs an open mind to figure it out themselves. The game is more about a feeling than a fixed gameplay.


Development challenges
