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.
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.
- More than 50 levels, each building on top of each other, culminating with fiendishly complex puzzles.
- Stealth-inspired gameplay, including abilities like noise-makers, portals, side-swapping, teleporting and more.
- Immersive ambient soundtrack by Sid Barnhoorn, composer for Antichamber, The Stanley Parable and Out There.
- Mesmerizing and soothing bichromatic art style comprised of warm blues and oranges.
- A heartwarming story about a boy and his robot, unfolding in parallel with the puzzle progression.
