House of Stairs

No walls, no ceiling, and no floor.
They’ve built this prison just for you.

House of Stairs is a small interactive piece I made in a couple of hours for Ludum Dare 33 (theme: “You are the Monster”). It was named after the eponymous William Sleator novel, which in turn was inspired by this famous M. C. Escher lithograph print.

I'm a big fan of William Chyr’s recent work on Relativity Manifold Garden, which was my main inspiration for this thing. You can download and play it for free on itch.io.
