M. C. Escher meets Isaac Newton

The Bridge is a 2D logic puzzle game that forces the player to reevaluate their preconceptions of physics and perspective. It is Isaac Newton meets M. C. Escher. Manipulate gravity to redefine the ceiling as the floor while venturing through impossible architectures. Explore increasingly difficult worlds, each uniquely detailed and designed to leave the player with a pronounced sense of intellectual accomplishment. The Bridge exemplifies games as an art form, with beautifully hand-drawn art in the style of a black-and-white lithograph.

The Bridge was designed from the ground-up to be both an accessible game and an intellectually stimulating experience. With its minimalistic control scheme, gamers and non-gamers alike can focus on the puzzles and challenge of the game without distraction. Each stage of The Bridge provides a new and interesting challenge, building on concepts learned throughout the game. This excellent game design, in unison with fantastic visuals and an immersive environment, has resulted in over a dozen wins and nominations from international independent game competitions, and The Bridge is still receiving praise and attention from the gaming press.
