A minimalistic, abstract game about physical and emotional distance between people.

Space Between Worlds is a Free To Play game with simple and intuitive controls and a puzzle gameplay based on the concept of proxemics, where the physical distance between people represents their emotional one (and holds the key to solve the levels). The game was made during the Internet Festival Game Jam of Pisa in 40 hours, and won the first prize.

The game presents itself with a minimalistic look and an abstract story: you will have to interpret what you are seeing to guide your square avatar through the difficulties of life.

We created Space Between Worlds to attempt to tell a story in a different way and communicate emotions through interaction and play. We brought it here on Steam, to let a whole new audience to experience this peculiar game.

Peculiar puzzles based on player interpretation of the level.
A story told through gameplay.
Music from Brian Crain.
Lots of squares and touching moments.

It Was very interesting and I get all my attention wanted to know everything that happened and how it was completed. ~ I would like to know what was the focus of the game?.

A very short game and but with a great message I liked the way they used simple squares to express things so deep, highly recommended.

People's lives are summarized in less than 10 minutes and made only with squares. A very interesting and well-achieved concept. Remember to greet those you want. Tell them want them. Help those who want to, because eventually they won't be able to.

I wanna say, about the game... It`s like our life. But in this game, me as a player, I`ve just moved a little square to be the same colour. The game is very short and easy to play. The music is very bautiful, the background sound is like real. Very well done, for this free game.

I downloaded It to have a more complete game in my account, but I have not wanted to discover something very interesting. They are Just cubes, perfectly placed with "Paint" and already, but I never thought that something so simple could express something so great. Recommended, total, are only 5 minutes and surprising.

This game is simple, restful, and full of meaning (which is paradoxical in view of its graphic nudity)... in fact I don't really see what to say about it so much it is subjective, and everyone will see it and live this game in its own way! But I recommend it to everyone, it will take you a few minutes to live this experience!

I love this "game" (its more than that!) because of its genius and simple idea. It shows, how we interact with each other, if we want to or not, but also, ways of proceeding, sometimes in an non-emotional way. I love this subject, so, share this game, so it can reach every human, so it can remember us, who we are! Thanks for this experience. Keep it up. :)

Space Between Worlds is a work as few, when I came down I did not expect what I found in it. A simple, minimalist design, based on geometric figures, colors and sounds, but which in their entirety relate a story, the history of any subject and explores, through mechanics and visual and sound elements, emotions. It Is amazing how with so little can transmit so much, has a powerful message, which speaks of the most human from the highest abstraction. If you are looking for a game to have fun this is not your thing, Space between worlds is an experience that has subtle but powerful messages that talk to you as a subject.
