Manifold Garden is an exploration-puzzle game coming to Linux, Mac and Windows. Since the games developed in Unity 3D, currently under development by William Chyr. Which is going to release in 2017, soon via Steam.
So gameplay puts the player in a universe with a different set of physical laws. While set in an Escher-esque world filled with secrets and mysteries. Players will have to utilize a unique gravity-manipulation mechanic to turn walls into floors. Since you will have to learn to see the world through whole new perspectives. Navigating through mindboggling architecture and solving seemingly impossible puzzles.
Manifold Garden Features
- A unique gravity-manipulation mechanic that allows players to walk on any visible surface.

Personally I love the idea of the mind bending means of physics. That and the exploration puzzle features to keep the player thinking. Since the games look is similar to Block’hood and the feel of something new.
So the whole project kicked off in November 2012. Developer William Chyr began working on Manifold Garden. Since the project was called Relativity.
William Chyr started by using the basics of game development and the Unity3D engine. While drawing inspiration from various physics thought experiments over Thanksgiving weekend. Yet the early version of the game for playtesters and the encouraging feedback pushed the idea further.
In 2013, Chyr was awarded a six-month artist residency at the Swatch Art Peace Hotel in Shanghai, China. This gave him the opportunity to focus on development of the game full-time. While taking it to a level that demonstrates many of the core ideas of the project.
In October 2013, Chyr returned to Chicago, where he has continued to work on Manifold Garden since. Followed by Indie Fund support in 2015.
So today Manifold Garden is still in development and coming soon. Since the games listed via Steam, yet no release date has been set. Yet coming to Linux, Mac and Windows.
