Willy Chyr's RELATIVITY is an exploration-puzzle game that imagines a universe with a different set of physical laws.
Set in an Escher-esque world filled with secrets and mysteries, you utilize a unique gravity-manipulation mechanic to turn walls into floors. Learn to see the world through whole new perspectives as you navigate mindboggling architecture and solve seemingly impossible puzzles.
Willy Chyr's RELATIVITY is being designed and developed by Willy Chyr, and is intended to be released on PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, and Linux in 2016.

"Every room I walked into had an "Aha!" moment where, in an instant, the confusing pieces fit together."
"The world emulates the black and white minimalism of Escher's work, and the crisp modern design populating the walls, windows, and massive towers seen in the distance inspire a desire to explore."
"I played through an early alpha build and when I got the hang of switching gravity around, I felt the same excitement I had when I first started thinking with portals."
"A mysterious and mind-boggling game to say the least, I’m excited to see more."
"Relativity may be the next game that puzzle fans talk about alongside Portal, Antichamber, and Q.U.B.E.."
"Relativity is a game that everyone should be keeping an eye on."
