Indie title Perspective now released
Posted: 13.12.2012 07:08 by Comments: 4
Perspective, a project by Widdershins, an indie dev studio comprised of eight college students, is now freely available from the game's official site.

The game is 1-2 hours long and is reminiscent of such games as Crush for the PlayStation Portable and Fez for Xbox Live Arcade, as the 2D platform levels change depending on the 3D viewpoint.

According to the dev team, "None of us had the luxury of working on Perspective full-time. From overloaded six-course semesters at DigiPen to full-time jobs and internships, there were always other obligations pulling for our attention. Despite these distractions, we sacrificed sleep and sanity to make Perspective into what it is today."

Gamers interested in downloading Perspective can do so from Strategy Informer here.

Surely they could sell this for ~5$? It's seems like an interesting puzzle game.
But I'm not complaining, free works better for me :)

$5 is maybe a little high for something that goes for 1-2 hours.

Then again, people bought Dear Esther.

They're investing in their future. "Here, take this cool little thing for free. FYI, we're also working on something bigger and cooler! Watch this space." Charging anything for it reduces the number of people potentially watching the space. That said, charging for it also makes people take it, and the company, more seriously.

If people are willing to spend 50$ on a game that lasts for 4-6-8 hours then 5$ for 1-2 hours still has a better $/hour ratio.

But I get your point, they probably only see this as promo. I'm just trying to say that this seems good enough to have commercial value.
