Introducing Euclidean, a game of geometric horror, developed by Alpha Wave Entertainment, a futuristic game development team who are a division of AAD Productions, that “explores the possibilities of small-scale, experimental games with an emphasis on never-before-seen VR gameplay”.

Join me in my Let’s Play as we fall, literally, into madness, surrounded by the things that your worst math nightmares are made of.

With the game having a basis in H.P. Lovecraft mythos as well as very early geometry, this game definitely doesn’t fail in surprising you in every corner, descending deeper into the depths of a horrifying dimension, where you have no power against the forces at play.

This mechanic was executed brilliantly by utilising an element of “limited vision”, where the fear of the unknown grips you, and movements of strange creatures catch your eye whenever there are short bursts or flashes of light.

It’s a short but fun game, even worth replaying on the harder difficulties, and I even found the harder difficulties more fun and interesting!
