Explore a dream-like world of eleven beautifully-constructed environments in this iPad adaptation of the classic desktop adventure. Equal parts puzzle game, physics toy, and living picture-book, Windosill rewards playful investigation with mysterious and beautiful surprises. Designed to be experienced in a single sitting (anywhere between 20 minutes and 2 hours), Windosill is suitable for clever kids and imaginative adults alike.
For fans of the original, this is no simple port. In order to create the best possible experience, we've rebuilt Windosill as a native iOS app and customized the behavior of every element to the iPad's touch interface. We believe this is the best version of Windosill yet.
We've also added some bonus features:
- A sketchbook gallery of concept and development artwork.
- The option to instantly skip to any room you've already completed (helpful if you want to re-visit a particular part).
- Complex Gravity, which allows you to manipulate objects by tipping your iPad.
- See-Thru Mode, which makes everything translucent -- giving you a sneak-peek into how Windosill is assembled.
"Windosill isn't like anything I've played on the iPad before, and it proved to be a delightful, playful surprise. Give it a shot, and you'll be glad you did." - Kotaku.com
"An incredible show of 3D vector art, combining puzzles, physics, and gorgeous visuals, all rolled into a neat little package." - G4TV.com
Praise for the desktop version:
"A magically-alive hyper-reality..." - OffWorld (BoingBoing.net)
"Explore a surreal environment by touching things, watching their incredibly smooth animation as they respond, and unpeeling their internal logic... the focus is always, always on playfulness and discovery... it's a joy to play Windosill." - JayIsGames.com
"Windosill somehow manages to be calming without being boring, challenging without being frustrating, and surprising without being gimmicky." - Destructoid
What's New in Version 1.2.1
We are proud to add Windosill to the new "Kids" category!
Sweet & Lovely!
I would liken the experience with that of playing with a piece of interactive art.
You play through several levels or windows where you experiment with the objects and backgrounds in each one to solve a sort of mystery puzzle, the end result is you get a little block key to unlock the door to the next window.
But the most fun is in interacting and figuring out what everything does and how it all works together.
Best game in the wholeeee freakin world!!!!!
This is the best game I have ever played and ever will play. It is worth every penny and will be willing to pay much more for next game. Please please please create a second, and third, and forth one!!!!!!!!!! I don't care if it's 5 to 10 bucks I want it!!!!!!! Don't hesitate and buy it right nowwwww!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nice but maybe not worth it
The game/piece-of-art is quite visually wonderful as others said, however it didn’t wind up lasting very long for me (nor my 5 year old). It is not that challenging from a puzzler standpoint. Once you’re done, it’s over; and besides my wonder at the art of it, I also had a vague feeling that was barely worth the cost.
