Loop Raccord uses cinematographic language and video editing logic as gameplay. Players get into a flow as they gain mastery at this a simple, abstract task that is transformed into a compelling interactive experience.

--Totally unique and never seen before game mechanic--
--With three game modes: Classic, Two Players and Neverending--
--Randomly generated levels offer infinite replayability--
--GameCenter leaderboards and achievements--
--featuring video clips form old American TV shows--

Inspired by the work of Peter Greenaway and exploring traditional video editing techniques, Loop Raccord harkens back to the era of “interactive cinema” while at the same time introducing a unique and original way to interact with the film medium. Beyond its fun and engaging gameplay, players will learn basic video editing knowledge and will discover how to achieve a crucial but widely unknown cinema effect: the illusion of continuity.

"I don't even know what I'm looking at. Is it art? How is this even a game? Is it broken? Is it saying something revelatory? I have no idea what you've made or what you've accomplished here, but whatever the hell this is, you've succeeded." - Independent games festival judge
