Downloading the Game
Patterns is available on Desura, a digital media and gaming distribution service here. If you're new to Desura, you'll need to first create a Desura account and then install the free Desura application here. New updates to Patterns are automatically applied to the game in Desura as they become available.
Patterns is a 3D universe complete with physics and gravity that users explore and shape with their creativity. Beginning on an archipelago floating in space, Patterns users explore unique worlds with their telekinetically gifted characters. As they explore, users encounter alien creatures and a variety of substances to harvest and build with, each with their own physical characteristics - from ice that slides, to fruit that bounces, materials that levitate, and more. As they craft bridges to traverse chasms, towers to reach the clouds, or something completely from their own imaginations, users discover special formations that unlock emergent behaviors - like bombs, rockets, and wheels - while challenging their ingenuity and building creativity. Players can share their creations to the cloud for others to download explore, or can create together with friends in multiplayer mode.
