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 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*

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)

i'm loving this game thus far. it was a bit disappointing to make it up here, though, only to be greeted with an invisible ceiling :P

Really good game. It's so innovative - just great. Although new graphic bring some cool mood, learning curve became steeper in my opinion, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Overall experience is great - worth supporting.

Hey, thanks! :-)
Why do you think the learning curve became steeper? We hoped the game would become easier to learn with the update.
