A beautiful game that grows around you and your exploring
Shape of the World is a game for the explorers where a rich and colorful world grows around you. Your presence is the driving force behind the cleverly populated environment as you establish permanent monuments to mark your journey.
It’s an evolving world that grows with each step and hints at distant landmarks, encouraging you to delve deeper into the woods. Shape of the World offers a unique unfolding experience for those seeking an alternative to quest-driven adventure games.
Exploration is a part of many games but never the main focus, Shape of the World puts exploration first. This feature is about the thrill of getting lost and losing your bearings, that moment when you discover an area you’ve never seen before and you’re not sure which way to go. Only when you’re lost can you experience the pleasure of being found, make it your task to leave a trail of monuments that represent your journey and help you find your way.
Shape of the World is deliberately disorienting, the forest only materializes around you when you get close and it regrows in a new way each time you pass. The game features a graphically compelling procedure generated environment that shifts continually, what surprises will you find when you retrace your steps?
