Being 2D in a 3D world isn’t all bad. With puzzle platformer Perspective, your flat avatar can actually take advantage of its multidimensional surroundings. Utilizing an innovative core gameplay mechanic, the player moves a first-person camera, shifting perspective in the 3D environment that allows your 2D avatar to cheat impossible gaps and distances.
Before Team Widdershins settled on rationalizing Perspective’s strange 2D/3D environments by placing them inside arcade cabinets within the game, they also explored a few other off-the-wall explanations. Potential ideas included setting the game inside “a modern art museum, purgatory, a space station, an underwater building, or the 3D character’s insane interpretation of a real environment.”
