Explanation of This is Infinity


I have been getting some rather negative feedback on This is Infinity, and after letting one of my friends test it, I can see why. The game is incredibly difficult until you get what the objective is.

My original intent was to try to let the player experience something that felt alien, and at first incomprehensible. Then they would feel a cool sensation when they figure out what was going on.


The problem is that the game doesn't have a fixed difficulty curve, you actually start out with a very large chance of entering the most difficult area of the game first. This area is on the verge of being too difficult even played after getting through half of the game, and certainly not a good starting point.

Therefore I think it might be good to give some further instructions as to what to do. However, I do think the game is more rewarding if you have some patience and try to figure out the objective on your own. So if you want to have the most interesting experience possible with the game, have some patience and try your best to figure it out on your own. If not, here's an explanation of what you need to do:

To summarize the game: Find four portals, figure out what to do after you enter each portal, then figure out how to get to the end. The objective in each area is fairly simple, but because of the way the game is presented it can be hard to figure out. Observe the elements you see in each level to get a clue to what is actually going on, and you'll probably be able to beat the game relatively quickly.


If that's not enough to get you through the game, here's a walkthrough.

Thanks a lot for the hints down there, man - I was really dazzled when I played the game first.
Anyways, it was a lot of fun to explore this weird world and I'd really appreciate more like that ;)

Sam said...

The pillar and circle levels are easy. I understood the cone level, thanks to the walkthrough. But even with the walkthrough, I still can't complete the sphere.

Anyway, I agree with irrenhaus3 - I was quite amazed by this game when I first played it, and would love to see more like it.

Well, as a non-gamer I had trouble finding out how to actually move. I could turn around with the mouse, but it took me half an hour to figure out that WASD are for actually moving around.

One of the best games I've played in such a long time. Didn't need to look at the hints or the walkthrough in order to reach the ending; after tons of perserverance, I finally beat it. It was very rewarding, thanx Cactus!!

j.l.dale said...

I heard about the release from http://experimentalgameplay.com/, sat down and beat the whole thing in roughly ten minutes. Amazing cactus, really. Though I haven't had the pleasure of Tuning just yet, this abstract direction seems like your weird and your crazy finally had a love-child. Bravo, always looking forward to the next.

SajHino said...

Nice game, dude. :)
It's a simple, fun and confusing game. I beat the game in about 15 mins, and I didn't need the walkthrough.

The last part is funny, I should say. Going to the moon with a ladder. LOL. :D

The game is not that difficult, the objectives (in my expirience) while "alien like" at the beginning, once you get the hang of it felt quite clear, thanks to some graphic cues that were given.

And yeah, the one that took me more to catch was the first one, then the thirth, then the second (I was looking the dimensions wrongly! XD), then fourth.

Awesome game :D, It makes you feel rewarded with a nice ending and challenge.

baf said...

Thanks for this explanation. Before I saw this post, I didn't even realize that there was an objective. I had gone to the world with the sparkling spheres first, and found that I could move around freely but apparently had no way of affecting what was happening, so I concluded that it was simply an experimental art piece and that what I had seen was all there was to it. Now that I know better, I'll give it another try.

Levitra (Vardenafil) is used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence; inability to get or keep an erection) in men. Vardenafil is in a class of medications called phosphodiesterase (PDE) inhibitors. It works by increasing blood flow to the penis during sexual stimulation. This increased blood flow can cause an erection. Vardenafil does not cure erectile dysfunction or increase sexual desire.
