Description

Imagine a room where a TV seems to be sitting on a table. But when you look at it from another angle, it appears to be floating in mid-air. Magic? No. Perspective? Yes. Welcome to a world where your eyes deceive you every day. Welcome to the world of Possessions - a minimalist 3D puzzle game about perspective and spatial awareness. In Possessions, you will look at various objects from different angles until they appear to be in their right place, all while learning the story of a family inhabiting the house.

History

It was a dark rainy night. Chirag was on phone with Jibran, explaining a concept based on perspective and visual trickery, which Chirag thought was pretty cool. Jibran had been listening to Chirag all week, trying to finalise a concept to work on, so things were starting to get a little desperate. But this idea showed potential when the team concieved a playable prototype and showed it around to their friends. After playing around with the prototype and bouncing ideas off each other, the team started working on the game in 2017. After finishing about 25% of the game, they submitted the game for "Upcoming Game of the Year" award at Nasscom Game Developers Conference (NGDC) 2017 and Unite India 2017. Possessions ended up getting selected as one of the 20 selected games for Unite India for the public showcase and runner-up for the award. These two achievements stirred things up, and made the team realise that they were onto something good.
