Hals über Kopf / game prototype

Hals über Kopf
Hals über Kopf

"Hals über Kopf" is a diploma project which became the prototype for a physics-based puzzle platform game.
Centuries ago, strange plants grew everywhere on the planet. They change the law of physics wherever they appear, and thus the planet broke apart. But people survived and even installed steam engines on some of the floating rocks, to use them as flying ships.
You play a former nobleman who works as a cabin boy on one of these airy islands. But greater adventures lie ahead: Learn how to use the physics-bending plants and eventually be able to stop the time, switch between parallel dimensions and change the direction of your own gravity!
