‘MANIFOLD GARDEN’ TO LAUNCH ON EPIC GAMES STORE IN 2019

Steam Edition Due Out in 2020
August 29th, 2019 — William Chyr Studio is thrilled to announce its long awaited exploration puzzle game Manifold Garden will launch for Windows PC this year as a 12-month timed exclusive on Epic Games Store — rediscover gravity and explore an Escher-esque world of impossible architecture in this highly anticipated indie release.
 
Manifold Garden is a game that reimagines physics and space. Witness infinity in first-person, and master its rules to solve physics-defying puzzles. Cultivate a garden to open new paths forward, where an eternal expanse awaits.

Key Features

  • An expansive and visually striking world filled with mind-bending puzzles.
  • Manipulate gravity to gain new perspectives and walk on any visible surface.
  • Experience space in new ways as you explore infinitely repeating Escher-esque architecture.
The partnership with Epic has allowed the studio to expand the scope and polish of the project, as well as increase the size of the art and design teams. A 3rd party QA studio has also been brought on board to help track down and tackle bugs. The partnership ensures that the studio will be able to provide support for the game — bug fixes and new features — through launch and beyond.
Manifold Garden is also scheduled to release on Steam in 2020. Additionally, it has been announced for PS4 and other platforms are currently being explored.
