Hello fellow game developers,
I wanted to make a plug for a game I’ve just submitted to Steam Greenlight. The game is called Camera Obscura, and it’s being developed by a small group of college students from UC Irvine. We started it in a game jam almost two years ago, and we liked the idea so much that we’ve continued to develop it into a full-length game.
Camera Obscura is a puzzle-platformer that revolves around a unique mechanic that allows the player to activate a camera flash so bright that it creates “afterimages” of all visible platforms. These platforms are solid enough to walk on, and they can be moved around for a short time, mimicking the player’s movements. This ability allows players to cross wide chasms, reach high platforms, and otherwise alter the shape of the environment to accomplish the ultimate goal – reaching the top of the mysterious Tower. You can see some gameplay footage here to get a better idea.
The Greenlight page is right here. We’d really love your support and your feedback!

The game also has a full, custom soundtrack by the amazing Trenton Ng, and we’ve shared a few of the tracks here:
Thanks for your time,
