About

TAST or The Alien Sphere Thing is an experimental, procedural 3D puzzler for the PC in combination with the XBox 360 Controller.

The player is trapped inside a sphere with floating cubes that react to each input he makes. To proceed to the next room he has to find the one right door in each room by observing and counting the actions the different cubes perform. Those actions can be rotating, moving or emitting a laser and are marked as codes around the doors.

But the Sphere does not let go of its inhabitants easily. The deeper you go, the crazier it gets. Muster all your courage and mental strength to overcome the obstacles, by relying on nothing but your instinct and knowledge.


This game was created during the “experimental-games-project-phase” with the topic “The Three Wise Monkeys”. The main focus lies on procedural creation of puzzles and a small narrative, while changing the visual aesthetics of the game over a set number of phases. The visuals can get quite intense, but are intended to do so.
