You have just escaped from a mental institution. You’re on the run. The sun is shining, the birds are singing. You are jumping happily from cloud to cloud. You know that the only way to freedom is by reaching the ship at the end of the level. A cute bunny is jumping towards you, blocking your path. By pushing a button the whole world flips around and shows its dark side. The bunny is now an evil nurse who is trying to stop you from getting away. You headbutt her, clearing your path. With a push of the button the world flips back and shows its light side again. “Play FLIPSIDE and see the world through the eyes of a madman” FLIPSIDE is a platform game that allows you to experience the world from two sides. Pick a side! Please check our website for information about Team 3, FAQ and more.

I like it, and indeed I hope there is more to come. I was going to watch it last night, but it hadn't been processed and I fell asleep.

i've only played a bit of the mod, but i really like the total conversion you did and the style is pretty neat too, but one thing really bothers me;
there's no save or quicksave option, and that's kinda what made me stop playing it, cause having to start over at that asylum every time really ruined it for me.
otherwise, great work.

Thanks a lot,

Watching that made me feel like all my ideas are boring.

Seriously, that MOD is awesome, I am impressed. I would love to do sound design for such a unique idea.

Please producers, think out of the box like Flipside did.

Really cool - ModDB TV turns out to be a great resource to learn about how other people run their teams. I can hardly believe Flipside was a one month project. That's just amazing and shows how great ideas don't necessarily take a long time to be made into reality.
