Escherreal is a mind-bending puzzle-platformer in which you must save the humorous Raffi from his crazy uncle Escher by flipping gravity and flattening the world from 3D to 2D.  The reality of it is, Escher has trapped Raffi in his mirror marble because Raffi is going nowhere in life.  By using the Mirror Marble to flip his life around and Escher’s Infinispecs to see things from a new perspective, Raffi will have to figure out how to not be a failure.  This game was made in Havok’s Vision engine with a team of 15 people.  Visit Escherreal.com for more information.
