Finding Sutherland weaves a hand-drawn world into a digital environment that responds with light, color, and musical layers. Use your senses to find hidden sources of gravity as you explore the movements of orbital mechanics.

In Finding Sutherland, each gravity source emits a layer of music that is affected by your movement. Visual sensors are emitted from your position and move with gravitational pull to help you visualize potential paths to navigate. Explore an ambient world full of intricate patterns as you affect your immediate surroundings as an orb of light. Navigate gravitational currents described by naturally flowing trails, with the ability to repel and attract gravity. This simple game mechanic allows players to explore the movements of orbital mechanics with the ability to correct a path without breaking the flow.
