The Grandfather Machine is a first-person maze/puzzle game, featuring a live performance actor developed by Shuaiying 'Shane' Hou and Michael Murray.
The game takes place in a desert environment you explore, and is broken up into two main spaces: the Real World and the Virtual World where the mechanics of play change depending on your location in these worlds. The core game mechanics including wall-walking, gravity manipulations and space paradoxes. On the game narrative side, The Grandfather Machine is an experience into the adventure of a surreal world featuring alternative thinking and bizarre logic.
The player awakens to find himself in a strange place. A scientist asks him to take several tests to “find answers to some of the life’s biggest questions”. The player has to finish a series of challenges in a Matrix-style virtual space, and he could walk on every plane like ground, wall and ceiling, go through different dimensions and travel by gravity pads to reach the final destination. But what lies at the end of his journey?
