At the end of 2012 we created a game that re-imagined the universe from Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions. Flatland was an 1884 satirical novella by the English schoolmaster Edwin Abbott.

The game was entered into the student games competition at CHI 2013, Paris but sadly did not make it as a finalist!

The images to the right show some of the explanation we included in the paper.

The top image shows the world first rendered in 3D before taking a thin slice to match the authentic feel from the original text.

I would like to revisit this unique world again – so watch this space.
