Graviton (GGJ 2015)

Graviton is a 3D first person puzzle game in which you manipulate gravity in various ways to solve each level. Gravity boots allow the player to utilitise slopes to change the direction of gravity; anti-grav jump allows the player to invert gravity at will, and the graviton bomb pulls objects towards it for a short period. The game was created with the Unity game engine and the C# programming language.
