Draw Me A Pixel‘s metafictional comedy point-and-clicker There Is No Game: Wrong Dimension breaks through the DRM wall thanks to GOG.
There have been quite a few humorous adventure games in which the characters are aware of the genre, i.e. they know they have to do fetch quests or collect objects and solve puzzles in order to progress. But these comments are usually for jokes with varying degrees of success. There Is No Game: Wrong Dimension takes this concept more than a few steps further by making the player or user try to escape a game system with the help of the system.
If this sounds confusing and headache-inducing, it’s actually an ingenuous idea. The player is constantly addressed by the game system that is trying to convince him that it’s not a real game and has to find a way to break out of it, together with the system itself. Thinking outside the box has probably never been more true than in this case, as one jumps from one genre and game to the next, trying to figure out how to get behind the technological curtain, i.e. finding and creating bugs, tearing the system apart from the inside out.
There Is No Game: Wrong Dimension was originally released in August this year and is now available DRM-free on GOG with a 15% launch discount that lasts until October 26, 2020, at 2 PM UTC. The soundtrack can also be bought separately.
