A first person explorer about getting pleasantly lost...

A first-person explorer where you’re cast as an outsider in a surreal organic world that reacts to your presence. Journey through a psychedelically colorful ecosystem of flourishing flora, rambling waterfalls, burgeoning mountains, glowing monoliths and graceful creatures.

Without you, will the forest still come alive?
Shape of the World is an exploration game where a rich and colorful world grows around you, a relaxing and interactive escape about getting yourself pleasantly lost. Your presence is the driving force behind the procedurally populated environment as you establish permanent monuments to mark your journey.

First-person explorer:
Wander in relaxing and surreal environments that beckon you to explore, hinting at distant landmarks and encouraging you to delve deeper into the woods. Amble, swim, drift and flyat your own pace: no ticking clock or perils laying in wait will prevent you from enjoying your journey here.

Play with an organic and mysterious ecosystem:
Interact with graceful animals, ephemeral flora, and intriguing monoliths. Your actions will alter the world you discover in vibrant and unexpected ways, leaving you wondering what will happen with each path you forge and every hollow you stumble upon.

Procedural population:
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 procedurally generated environment that shifts continually. What will you find when you retrace your steps?

A dynamic soundtrack that responds to the player’s travels:
The audio shifts along with the visuals, providing an enveloping aural experience to match your psychedelic journey and amplify your immersion.

Heya there,

Hope everything is going well for you! Here, I’m preparing to release the game… in less than two weeks now. 5th of June for the Steam and Ps4 version, 6th of June for XboxOne and Switch builds, 4 years after the beginning of this adventure. Damn!

The launch trailer is here:

If you’re interested, I’m releasing a short demo of the game in the wild on Gamejolt. It’s only the first level, but it’ should give you a fairly good idea! If you do play, don’t hesitate to let me know and give me some feedback here.

Here is the link

My friend and sound designer Brent Silk has also made the soundtrack available on Bandcamp. Give it a listen, it’s honestly amazing.

Take care,
