What would it be like to see from our parent’s perspective? Our child’s perspective? What problems could we solve? What are the limits of those perspectives? What would we discover?

Glass Walls is a 3D, 3rd-person puzzle game featuring a unique perspective switching mechanic, a surrealist visual style, an original adaptive soundtrack, and an intergenerational story about mothers and daughters. Playing as 3 generations of women, players swap between different perspectives to solve intricate puzzles and discover the stories behind each of them.
