A journey inside your social fears in the form of a puzzle platform. A logic circuit simulator. A symmetric experience on black and white, in which solid and hollow lose their meanings.

Download the demo here: Atraxgames.com

Josh is a teen-age boy who lives in his own world as Caleb and Ammiel, his two alter-egos.
In Sym every tile has a meaning: they behave as logic gates, changing color depending on nearby tiles.
Caleb can exist only in the white world: for him black is solid and white is hollow. For Ammiel is the opposite. Caleb can become Ammiel, but they cannot exist simultaneously.
The game is going to feature a full story with 5 chapters, about 40 levels, and 2 endings.

Shared World
We want players to "open doors" to other player: the game will feature a level editor, and users can share their level and connect them by the same doors you see in the game.

- Now the level editor works properly;

- Now the last levels works properly and the final videos plays in the right moment;
- Various minor bugs fixed;

Sym is a black/white puzzle platform where you can switch between solid and hollow tiles. Some of these tiles behave as logic gates and change color depending on its neighbors.

This game clearly got a lot of influence from Shift. The thing is though, while Shift may have had potential, it seemed the developers just didn't know how to go beyond the original concept, and thus when they made Shifting World for the 3DS, it tried to fix what wasn't already broken and turned it into a disappointing mess. Looking at this, I can see you guys have not only taken what was good about that game, but also expanded on it with a whole new personality. Hope this becomes successful, and I really hope you can get this on Steam, so that more people will know about it, and hopefully buy it when it comes out!

Guys, you've created something outstanding: a game that can shake the throne of my favorite one, Closure (by Eyebrow Interactive). Conception, atmosphere, graphics, music (!), puzzles, controls, -- all is made perfect and is touching the soul. 10/10! I think, this game has a great future.
