Semispheres is a beautiful puzzle game that has dual realities at its heart. Its bichromatic art style is comprised of warm blues and oranges and is accompanied by a synth-led soundtrack by Sid Barnhoorn, composer for Antichamber and The Stanley Parable . Your goal is to reunite two parallel worlds.

The game will have 50+ levels, each bulding on the one preceding it. As is usually the case, the levels increase in difficulty the further you go.

This might sound a bit hectic, but the game will soothe and challenge in equal measure. Also, as you play, a heartwarming story about a boy and his robot unfolds.

Radu Muresan, designer of Semispheres: I’m super excited for everybody to finally play Semispheres. From the first seed of an idea I prototyped at the Ludum Dare game jam in August 2014, to what players are about to experience, the game’s development has been an amazing experience. Now, with the game’s minimalist art style and an amazing soundtrack by Sid Barnhoorn, Semispheres represents the completion of the vision I had close to 3 years ago, striking the balance between calming and challenging I’ve been looking for.

Semispheres will launch February 14th 2017 for PC via Steam, and for PlayStation 4 via the PlayStation Store. Controller support includes the option to play with keyboard. Additional platform releases will follow in 2017.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
