Described as "VVVVVV + Proteus + Dear Esther + a bit of Portal," Souvenir is a first-person game where players "hop" around an M.C. Escher-inspired world to collect scattered "souvenirs" while reading a sprawled-about, coming of age narrative.
Souvenir is the thesis project of Parsons' MFA candidates Robert Yang, Mohini Dutta, and Ben Norskov. The team posted more hypnotic art if you need convincing before diving into the free Windows or Mac builds. Be warned: there is no ending implemented, yet. However, life's about the journey, or something, and this one is quite heady.
