Camera Obscura

Camera Obscura (Anteater Games, 2015)

 

An ancient tower in a forgotten land. A lone photographer on a desperate search. A once-in-a-lifetime chance. Camera Obscura is an innovative puzzle-platformer illustrated with carefully crafted pixel graphics and set to a beautiful custom soundtrack. Use the unique “afterimage” mechanic to temporarily clone the Tower’s architecture – spanning gaps, creating staircases, and freezing platforms in place.

Freeze me

Freeze me (Rainy Night Creations, 2015) employs a camera with magical abilities as a core game mechanics. Taking pictures freezes the objects photographed, transforming the metaphor of the freezing of time through photographic capture into a feature usually seen in game weapons.

FreezeME is a A 3D platformer in the style of the 90s-era but wait there is a twist! The main character “R” has one special tool – a camera around her neck. This camera allows her to literally freeze the objects she photographs.
