Perspectrum, an indie game developed by ProudMom Games, is a 2-D puzzle platformer for Windows, Mac, and Linux via Steam, Itch.io, and Game Jolt. Players take the role of the "Tall Stranger", a being who has awakened with the power to use ancient fountains to change the elements of the world. The stranger must use spirit fragments scattered throughout the various levels to bring the mountain back to life. The game will include an overworld and five dungeons, each introducing it's own unique mechanic to help collect more spirit fragments.
Perspectrum has been in development for a little over two years. Connor Haynes wrote in his blog, "It all started as a little experiment where I just wanted to see if I could figure out how games do palette changes with shaders. I ended up going on a weird journey that diverged from that original intention first to a short game to share with my friends and learn some more, and then into a full on commercial product. I can say that Perspectrum has without a doubt been the most rewarding project of my career in game development so far."
