An ancient tower in a forgotten land. A lone photographer on a desperate search. A once in a lifetime chance. Camera Obscura is a puzzle platformer where you attempt to summit a ruined tower, a relic of a fanatical sect trying to reach the sun. Facing dangerous animals, crumbling architecture, and perilous pitfalls, can you reach the Summit, and perhaps, redemption? Camera Obscura uses an innovative "Afterimage" mechanic where you can copy the level architecture in order to span gaps, create staircases, and freeze moving platforms in place. The ability to copy and manipulate each level allows players to find many paths through the tower's 100 maps. Camera Obscura is a 2D puzzle platformer that marries level design and game mechanics as closely as possible. By making it so that the player's main ability takes shape directly from their environment, we made it so that every map is its own solution, the level design is the lock and the key all at the same time.
