UPDATE 04/02/2014 : Heya everyone, just to make things clear this is the DK1 version, the DK2 version of Blocked In is in the works. Unfortunately some parts have to be reworked to make good use of the the positional tracking and higher resolution of the DK2. The version posted here is the DK1 version. Please unplug your DK2 and restart your PC to enjoy Blocked In before you launch Blocked In on your DK1.

For a moment you are going to step into a world in which time has no meaning and the impossible will bring about the end of the world.

Sit down, look around and enjoy your view of the end of the world in this intimately detailed "appartment room that is being blocked in by enormous Tetris blocks while they destroy the world" diorama.

This demo is best played while sitting behind a desk with proper quality headphones. You can' t walk around. Ow and anyone who has a phobia of blocks should steer clear of this demo.
