The Fourth Wall is Fifteen Minutes of Platforming Brilliance

on February 11, 2012 3:00 PM

A few insanely bright students at DigiPen have created one of the most refreshingly clever, all-too-brief platformers in a while with The Fourth Wall. At first glance, it appears to be just another stylistically bare platformer, but after a few minutes you’ll realize the simplistic complexity in all the levels.

This is one of those games where you’re introduced to a level with seemingly no clue what to do, and once you do get the solution, you’ll find yourself immensely happy with yourself. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t mutter “…huh, clever bastards…” under my breath more than a few times while playing this gem.

Download The Fourth Wall here for free, and revel in the awesome.
