Reunite Two Worlds in Vivid Helix’s Contemplative Parallel Puzzler.

Press release:
Calgary, Canada – January 17th, 2017 – Independent developer Vivid Helix today announced that Semispheres will launch on Sony PlayStation 4 and for PC on Steam this February. Semispheres is a beautiful, 2D puzzle game with a gorgeous, synth-led soundtrack by Sid Barnhoorn, composer of Antichamber and The Stanley Parable, that places dual realities at the heart of its challenge. Featuring a bichromatic art style comprised of warm blues and oranges, it’s a game that seeks to reunite two parallel worlds.

“Semispheres was initially conceived in August 2014 at the Ludum Dare 30 game jam, around the theme of connected worlds. The first prototype already contained the idea of overlapping realities, but constrained each character to their own world”, said Radu Muresan, designer of Semispheres. “While that early version of the game was fun, it wasn’t until I introduced ideas like portals, side-swapping and teleports that opened up the possibility space, offering new depth and scope to the puzzles.”

In Semispheres, each analogue stick controls a different avatar in environments that might initially appear identical but reveal profound differences crucial to progression. Portals allow the avatars to enter each other’s reality, creating fiendishly complex inter-dimensional puzzles, with success reliant on methodical planning and skilful execution. It’s not all esoteric brain workouts, though. Tension is introduced through the sentries that guard these worlds, whose fields of vision you must evade in order to find safe passage and the eventual resynchronisation of the worlds.

Never less than a joy to spend time with, Semispheres’ synaptical environments soothe and challenge in equal measure, leaving you to ponder its parallel puzzles long after you’ve left the game world. Semispheres will launch on PC via Steam and for PlayStation 4 on the PlayStation Store in February 2017. Additional platform releases will follow in 2017.
