Above and Below

Browser-based, Unity-powered project from Vancouver available to play now.


VANCOUVER, December 7, 2010 - Dark Acre Game Development announced today that the debut effort ‘Above and Below’ is now available free-to-play via their website to Unity-enabled browsers.

Above and Below, a browser-based video game built in Unity 3D, is the debut release from solo independent game-maker Christopher ‘Jack’ Nilssen.

In Above and Below, the player controls a tiny person that can jump up to the harrowing heights and fall down into the deadly depths of the game world, collecting valuable treasures, avoiding mindless minions, and defeating terrible guardians. A casual platformer, the full experience can be had in under thirty minutes and is available completely free from the developer’s website.

Above and Below is the result of eight weeks of intensive full-time work. It is delivered via the Unity 3D game engine to browsers, and represents the first in a series of free-to-play efforts from Jack’s Dark Acre.
