Features of TRI:

  • freeform 3D platformer with an emphasis on atmosphere and exploration
  • build triangles to overcome abysses, reach unknown places, and walk on the walls and the ceiling
  • control light rays and destroy obstacles with dangerous lasers
  • explore the strange worlds of TRI, collect treasures and solve puzzles

Reviews:

"You could just make your own platforms and climb up, and I feared the game would lose the sentiment – that feeling – that the first level really nailed for me. Luckily, it did actually manage to keep hold of it, and by the time I got around to Level 5, Labyrinths I believe it’s called, I was sitting right back in my seat with my brain just baking in the pleasure the intricate level design and mysterious criss-crossing architecture was pumping out at me."

Like every indie sale, this one does have the charity aspect as well. In the first place we chose a local historic building we visit quite often in our free time, called the Peißnitzhaus. The people there try to restore it and also have a very family-friendly beer garden running.  Unfortunately they were badly affected by the flood in June, and thus need additional money.
But to have a known and more important NGO, we chose to have Greenpeace instead. We are glad to support an organization like Greenpeace that taught us the importance to fight Monsanto, save whales and dolphins or their current campaign to save the arctic from oil exploitation. We are super-happy and proud to pledge parts of the money that we raise - with your help, of course, to Greenpeace via IndieGameStand.

PS: Buy our games!

PPS: Update! 900 people bought our games and paid $1,939.21 - i.e., $2.15 average! Awesome!

    Guys, I was very interested in picking up this game via IndieGameStand, but I am not at all interested in my money going to an extremist organization. Greenpeace may mean well but they go too far, and I want none of my money going their way. If you had just gone with the other cause, I would have been 110% behind it. Any way that can be worked out?

    Originally we wanted a different charity, but unfortunately the operator of IGS didn't allow it, so we had to choose an alternative. We then picked Greenpeace, because we think that they did a lot more good than bad, and saving the environment is just too important for us to ignore.

    I understand if you don't like them, but I don't think we can change the charity now. You can buy the games still regularly in our shop, without helping Greenpeace in any way. ;-)
