Manifold Garden

Manifold Garden is a video game designed by American artist William Chyr.

Known for creating massive balloon sculptures, Chyr wanted to work in a creative medium without any spatial limitations. He designed the game so that it did not need any obvious instructions.

Players enter an initial puzzle that requires them to take a leap into the game’s repeating geometries. Over time, it becomes clear that falling off leads you back to where you started.

The virtual environment is enhanced by architecture that would be impossible in the physical world, and a painterly palette of purples, blues and white.

Designed by William Chyr, Arthur Brussee, Laryssa Okada and Martin Kvale.
