about Marc ten Bosch

Marc ten Bosch is an independent game developer based in San Francisco, currently working on Miegakure, a puzzle game that lets you explore and interact with a four-dimensional world.

Miegakure is a puzzle game that lets you explore and interact with a four-dimensional world. The fourth dimension in this game works just like the first three: it is a mathematical generalization.

Your ability to move in the fourth dimensions in addition to the usual three allows you to perform miraculous feats like seeing inside closed buildings, walking through walls, stealing objects from closed containers, binding two separate rings without breaking them, etc...

These actual consequences of the mathematical formulation of 4D space have been thought about for more than a century (in the 1884 novella "Flatland" for example) but it is the first time anyone can actually perform them, thanks to the video game medium.
