Description

Explore a dream-like world of eleven beautifully-constructed environments in this iPad adaptation of the classic interactive artwork. The inhabitants of Windosill will respond to your touch in ways that are both intuitive and unexpected, rewarding playful investigation with mysterious and beautiful surprises. Designed to be experienced in a single sitting (anywhere from 20 minutes to two hours), Windosill is equal parts puzzle game, playful toy, and living picture-book, suitable for clever kids and imaginative adults alike. ---- For fans of the original, this is no simple port. In order to create the best possible experience, we've built Windosill for the iPad as a native iOS app and customized the behavior of every element to the iPad's touch interface. We believe this is the best version of Windosill yet.We've also added some bonus features: - A sketchbook gallery of concept and development artwork.- The option to instantly skip to any room you've already completed (helpful if you want to re-visit a particular part).- Complex Gravity, which allows you to manipulate objects by tipping your iPad.- See-Thru Mode, which makes everything translucent -- giving you a sneak-peek into how Windosill is assembled.---- Praise for the desktop version: "A magically-alive hyper-reality..." - OffWorld (BoingBoing.net) "Explore a surreal environment by touching things, watching their incredibly smooth animation as they respond, and unpeeling their internal logic... the focus is always, always on playfulness and discovery... it's a joy to play Windosill." - JayIsGames.com "Windosill somehow manages to be calming without being boring, challenging without being frustrating, and surprising without being gimmicky." - Destructoid
