A downloadable game for Windows

Made in 2015.

Birch is a small puzzle-platformer about codependency, made in GameMaker Studio.

This is technically the first video-game I made seriously. I was heavily inspired by Jonathan Blow’s Braid, and I wanted to be able to use puzzles in an artistic and meaningful way. I’m writing this a couple of years after the game’s creation. There are plenty of things that I would have done differently if I were to make the game again, but I’m genuinely proud of my work on this project, and I can think of a couple of levels that are especially good.

Install instructions

Unzip the file and run the executable.
