Backworlds is a puzzle game being developed for Windows and OS-X. Levels have two layers and the player can use a brush and “paint” to decide what layer of the level is active on a detail level. Check out the screenshots.

Backworlds is a continuation of the project “Backworld” which was made for the TIGSource Assemblee competition. It is being developed by Anders Ekermo and Juha Kangas.
