Play OverviewPlay Overview

Viewfinder (2023) is a puzzle adventure game where your camera doesn't just take pictures but reshapes the fabric of reality around you. By taking and holding up pictures you create new ways to traverse the world and solve environmental puzzles.

You play by moving around the world and taking pictures with your instant camera. As you do so, you solve geographical puzzles that let you progress but also uncover the mysteries left behind in the place you find yourself.

As you progress you learn the secrets of the world, how it came to exist like this and the freedom to create. Solving the puzzles opens multiple hub worlds that are all cohesive and encompass similar, but complex, differences.

The result is a game about perspective. Not only how you view and manipulate geometry but how this affects your journey in the world. Like an Escher print, it takes impossible traversal but makes it possible in unexpected ways.

Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked Viewfinder 19 months ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated a year ago.
