A downloadable videogame for Windows

Latest version: 02.03alpha — tech demo.

BLAIR (also titled MarsCat's BLAIR) is a 2.5D puzzle-platformer fantasy-scifi videogame developed by me, MarsCat! The game features artwork, character and set design inspired and borrowed from early silent film, film noir and fantasy fiction and art.

The game features 2.5D graphics— that is, 2D platform gaming in a 3D plane. The game's being developed in the deprecated Game Maker 8.


PLOT:

Blair wakes up in her bedroom after a deadly bout of fever, and discovers herself in another world, barren and dangerous. She must find a way out from the maze-like dimension she's trapped in, avoiding weird forms, creatures and collecting artifacts that might help her along the way.
