No Money, No Problem: Perspective

Title: Perspective
Developer: Digipen
Platforms: PC
Price: Free
The students at Digipen Institute of Technology are perhaps some of the most promising up-and-coming developers out there. Their work has inspired and influenced both Portal games and have given us great games like Nitronic Rush and TAG The Power of Paint. Released in 2012, Perspective is another fantastic game from Digipen, a challenging puzzle platformer that gives point of view a whole new meaning.
Blue platforms are your floor and ramps, orange platforms are dangerous. You have to reach the exit. But getting there is not so simple because Perspective is a 2D platformer in a 3D world. Rotate your view till distant objects are touching. Zoom out until that impassable wall is a small ledge. Think of it like Fez without camera limitations.
Perspective explores its mechanic in so many incredible and mind bending ways, that revealing more would be a disservice to the game's challenging levels. Give a Perspective a try, it won't cost you a cent.
