Entrant 2017

Linelight is a refreshingly inventive, minimalist puzzle-adventure experience. It takes the wildly simple premise of "What if everything takes place on a line?" and rockets it into outer space.

There's no jump button. There's no shoot button. You can, however, move, and that one ability creates a universe of possibilities and one mind-bending experience. Each mechanic is immediately understandable, then gradually combined with familiar elements, leading to an exponentially large array bursting with puzzles, each with a one-of-a-kind solution.

Wrapped in a blanket of soft, calming visuals and an energetic, soothing soundtrack, Linelight simulates the experience of getting an A+ on an exceptionally hard test while receiving a back massage.
