Irritum is a game revolving around the concepts of depression, and suicide. The player finds themselves in purgatory with no memory of their past life. Two mysterious beings, Cassus and Sollus, guide the player in their journey of discovery, and lead them either to retribution or oblivion. The only thing you know is to keep moving forwards, either collecting your memories in each level or ignoring them completely. Either discover the purpose of Irritum, or escape it.

The gameplay for Irritum is a 3d platformer with a puzzle-like twist. The player must use inter-dimensional planes to reach the end of each level, but they can only have one plane activated at a time. For example, the player can activate red platforms and interact with them as normal, but when blue is activated, the player will float through red platforms as if they did not exist. The player also has the ability to create a ghost of themselves that is immune to damage, and reverse gravity at their will to overcome difficult obstacles.

Irritum is being produced for Windows, Mac, and Linux, and will be released September 6, 2013 and will be $4.99. You can purchase the game here (www.IrritumGame.com).

I did not expect the game to be as enjoyable as it is. But Irritum is quite good.

Heya, got the game from the promo, but I can't unzip the file :( My WinRAR should be working fine though, as I've been having no trouble at all with my other DRM-free game I just downloaded. If there's any suggestions that'd be great!
