Anomaly 1729 is Officially Released!
Play The Alpha!!
Description
Release date: December 2015
Rotate your world.

Imagine being trapped inside a Rubik's Cube-like world, solving puzzles from the inside out.

Anomaly 1729 is a puzzle game like no other. Featuring a unique world-rotation mechanic, you will need to think outside the box in order to guide Ano, a curious entity, through the strange world of Phiohm to uncover its many secrets.

What once began as a ambitious university project has flourished into a fully fledged title powered by Unreal Engine 4. And we can't wait to share our creation with you.

Key Features

Anomaly 1729 might be our first official release as a studio, but we're committed to pulling out all the stops and ensuring that we provide the best experience possible. Key features include:

  • A rich and engaging story that explores the origins of Ano and the true purpose of Euler, the creator of Phiohm.
  • An open world, split into multiple hubs, with each hub allowing total freedom to tackle puzzles in any order you wish; postpone and revisit a difficult puzzle as your skill grows.
  • Complex puzzles that require you to manipulate the very world around you and use many complimentary features in order to discover the solution:
    • World rotation: The path is never as obvious as it might first seem. You will need to think outside the box and approach each chamber's puzzles from all angles.
    • Impulse panels: Ano isn't superhuman (he isn't even human), so you will need to make full use of the dynamic Impulse Panel catapults that might be lying around in order to reach otherwise inaccessible areas.
    • Mobile cube platforms: Phiohm itself is partially comprised of individual cuboid moving and rotating platforms and lifts — instruments you will need to take full advantage of if you intend to navigate each chamber.
    • Insane platforming: We won't lie: we love platformers. Anomaly 1729 will deliver a constantly changing landscape to navigate. Rotate the world to turn a pillar into a bridge, or bring the platform in the distance to your feet. Ano isn't the most capable spelunker, but with the ability to turn the world upside down, nothing is out of reach.
  • Hidden clues to uncover that reveal the mysteries that surround the otherworldly architects of Phiohm.
  • Bleeding-edge high-definition graphics, courtesy of Unreal Engine 4 technology.
  • Cinematic soundtrack composed by independent music composer Christopher Bezold specifically for Anomaly 1729.

    History

    The project began life as the brainchild of three university students, but has since evolved into a video game currently being development by a passionate team of 14 people, all of whom devoted to making Anomaly 1729 the best puzzle platforming experience possible.
