Inspired by the award-winning short film of the same name by Olli Huttunen, IDEA is a physics-based exploration game with platforming elements that invites players discover a beautiful, savage world as they help their ideas find their place in the world.
The game sets you on a journey of awe-inspiring beauty, exploring gorgeous landscapes from a bird’s eye view recorded in 4K resolution, with no loading times between screens. Spark an idea, represented by a white lightbulb, and send it forth to find its place in the world. Watch your idea from the sky, bouncing and falling, and help it when it gets stuck before the music ends.
If you find your destination, your idea will bloom into a piece of visual art, a short clip of beauty and marvel. But sometimes, it won’t be able to advance, and its journey will end there – but it won’t be for nothing: it can help other people’s ideas in the future, or even yourself. Write a thought, a piece of a song, a verse, and share it. Now is out there, forever, for all the world to see. And when you begin a new journey, you’ll see other people’s ideas. Save your favorite ones, and see how many people have saved yours.
IDEA has won several awards since it’s was announced in early 2022, and became finalist of the prestigious Sense of Wonder Night at the Tokyo Games Show, last September. The game follows similar principles as The Longest Road on Earth (of which TLR Games are co-creators): a soothing, poetic experience, focused on the feelings and meanings that the intersection between art, music, and gameplay can create. You can follow the development of IDEA on Steam.
Born in the beautiful city of Las Vegas, NV. in 1986 to a military family, I have had the opportunity to travel throughout the country. I even had the opportunity to live in England for several years when I was a child. As life settled down I found myself in the great state of Kansas. Kansas has been home for me since I was in 5th grade, so you can say I pretty much grew up here.I have always had a fascination with technology and computers and have been building websites since I was young. I built the first version of CGNENT (cowgamers.net) back in 1996 when homestead.com was started. Currently in life I am working on several businesses with focuses on retail and gaming.
