Prevailing the Wall

Each day I live in a glass room unless I break it with the thrusting of my senses and pass through the splintered walls to the great landscape. —Mervyn Peake

Against the Wall

Against the Wall is a video game set in a very unusual world. This world is an infinite vertical surface composed of irregularly-sized white bricks. Entire civilizations and ecosystems cling for survival on the side of The Wall, everyone and everything existing under the constant threat of tumbling into the endless sky. In order to travel in this hostile environment, one needs to manipulate the bricks in a way that forms ledges, stairways, and roads.You control a solitary character who is struggling to return to a village located miles above the starting point. Along the way, you'll encounter strange sights, abandoned settlements, expansive castles, dangerous creatures, and complex mechanisms that will help or hinder your progress.

 

Under a Watchful Eye

The player is essentially the prisoner of a floating stylized Wadjet eye that travels through a large countryside full of obstacles. The eye projects a red ring around itself on the ground. If you cross out of that ring, the eye will begin to attack you. You need to rush through the obstacles on the ground to keep up with the thing, all while searching for an opportunity to escape. Once the player breaks free, they’ll need to hide out for a certain amount of time before they win the game.
