Viewfinder is an absolutely mind-blowing first person puzzle adventure where you can place photographs to turn them into full 3D structures in the game world.
Every once in a while a game comes along that you can’t believe is actually possible. Viewfinder is one such game. The core gameplay revolves around you being able to hold up and place photographs/pictures in the game world. Once the pictures are placed they then instantly become 3D structures that you can use to help you solve puzzles and access new areas.
Remarkably, there are no limits to where you can place the pictures and you can even use a camera to take pictures of your own to use. It makes for one of the most inventive puzzle mechanics since the invention of the Portal Gun and it allows for a very freeform approach to the levels, with plenty of different ways you can approach them.
The current demo was released as part of the Steam Puzzle Fest, which is just coming to an end, so it’s possible that it won’t be available for much longer (so get it quick). It takes around 15 minutes to play through and features eight different levels that will blow your mind in different ways. The only negative at the moment is that it has a rather irritating narrator (her voice acting is good, but the dialogue ads nothing to the experience), other than that though it’s shaping up to be an incredible game. Very highly recommended.
