The conundrum of video games is that there is always a limitation — whether budget, memory and/or time. There’s no escaping this practicality… or is there? Case study anomaly: the technological and artistic achievement that is Manifold Garden, created by the genius William Chyr over the course of 8½ painstaking years. At first blush, it’s a psychics-dripping puzzle game, but examine further and you’ll realize that it has actually cracked the conundrum. It is “infinity incarnate” — an endless masterwork that tells a finite story, but does so with the beautiful illusion of absolutely limitless scope. Environments stretch of forever and ever, but yet, despite its impossible architectural trappings, there is a natural beauty at play. You, the player, are meant to cultivate a garden, and by encouraging the prosperity of plantlife and waterways, you continue to unlock the many secrets of this abstract and amazing world.
