Screenshot005This game looks very cool indeed. It's based around that kind of impossible-object drawing that you'd see on the front of maths books in school but requires you to rotate & move the objects to allow a little man  to reach his goal.

I love the way it completely messes with your sense of space and yet it has a very definite internal logic of it's own. I'd imagine it's one of those games  which if played too much would cause you to see objects slightly weirdly for a while afterwards.

The video doesn't seem to want to work in my browser, but it's available on Youtube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfICeBtVv8U

It looks absolutely lovely, and completely at odds with a lot of current game development - overblown, super-detailed space marine games (Gears of War, etc) or whacky party games (Wii Sports).

I can imagine it being teeth-gnashingly hard at later levels.
