In the world of the Odd Gods players experience a mind-bending first-person adventure like no other as they discover the magical power of the TRI. By creating triangles that can be used to solve puzzles and traverse the landscape, adventurers hunt for mystical totems and master a wide range of abilities such as reflecting light, scaling sheer heights and even defying gravity! With every twist of a corridor, every raised gantry, every new floor of towers and dungeons in the Odd Gods' world, TRI challenges gamers to think outside the box and find new ways to overcome seemingly impossible obstacles.

To continue our series of Making-ofs of our game TRI: Of Friendship and Madness, we filmed my brother Ludwig Hanisch in his basement, This is where he composed the music for the game. It's an interview of around 15 minutes about family, inspirations and instruments. Watch it now - it even has English subtitles!


In order to create a more extensive, more interesting post-mortem of TRI, we made a digital artbook. Even though I already wrote a short retrospective about TRI's development, I felt it was necessary to close this chapter in a much cooler way. Thus there is the artbook now, which exists in two versions:

  • The full edition (94 pages) contains it all, background information, WIP screenshots, concept art, scribbles, etc. - everybody who bought the deluxe edition of TRI has it.
  • The lite edition is free to download for everybody - it contains the first 51 pages of the full edition and is only missing the transcript of the developers' commentary; the very same commentary you can also unlock in the game.

Oh, and one last thing: to our surprise TRI got an Honorable Mention at the 2015 Geekie Awards, which is pretty crazy if you consider the high-quality competitors. Thanks to the judges for the mention!

I hope you're also looking into getting TRI into one of the Indie Royale bundles! They seem to do pretty well and recently they have been putting together bundles of alpha games. Good luck getting the funding you need to finish this game comfortably. The astetics are great and the game play looks quite fun.

Our current sale on IGS will probably be the only sale for a longer time regarding TRI. We just don't want to think that you can't sell a game fullprice nowadays, because everyone waits for sales and bundles ...

$5 is absolutely a fair price for the game, I was just bringing up Indie Royale in the eventuality that you ended up needing another fund raising in the future to get the game finished up.

TRI costs $5 as long as it's alpha. The price for the full version will probably be $10 or $12. We really shouldn't do another sale of this kind before it's finished. :-) I guess we would rather try IndieGoGo.
Also, the outcome of the Debut Bundles of IndieRoyale doesn't look that great, especially if you consider the much smaller royalties.

I noticed that this game is not listed in the alphafunding section … did that happen intentionally?

No, it didn't. How do I put it into that section?

„There are a lot of risks involved with alphafunding so not every game is eligible... but if you are open about your development, want to give and get support from your fans then get in contact and let us know about your project.“

- I very much like this game. It's very similar to Portal and Portal 2 from Valve. It's just that instead of portals you create tri's to make your path defying gravity.
- The music is very good!
- The puzzles are ok, not to hard, not to easy, just enough to have fun
- To bad there aren't NPC's like the robots in Portal to fight with in original ways (no guns of course)
- Oh, I'm playing this on Linux and my specs are i3-370M, 4Gb RAM, Nvidia GeForce 310M 512Mb. On the website, the recommended specs are i5 and better graphics cards (i think). For me it works with these specs but i had to cut down and tweak it in the options->performance xD

I haven't tried it yet, but it's definitely on my queue one I'm over with starseedpilgrim and pid. But here my question: Are you planning to make it RIFT compatible? PLEASEPLEASEPLEASE! Tri is exactly the kind of world I'd like to experience in vr! Please also with hydra support! *hoping*

Hey!
Currently we don't plan Rift support - but if TRI gets popular enough we will definitely do it. Right now it wouldn't be feasible for us, I fear.

Thanks for your fast reply, even if it made me a little sad ;) - I hope it gets popular enough to justify a rift version (maybe being a rift-ready launch title would give it a large extra boost?).

I just purchased the game and am looking forward to playing it when my 'queue' is empty (I recently figured that I get more out of a game when I'm not playing too many different games at once)
