flowmo is a discovery game, inspired by games such as Proteus and Journey. The point of the game is to experiment, be playful, and see what happens when you try things out!

flowmo will take you on a trance-like musical journey through the game universe, from the moment of its creation. Sit back and watch the universe unfold before your eyes. Take the world into your hands and shape the very fabric of space and time. Explore the universe as it expands before your eyes.

As the universe evolves and becomes more complex, the player is able to interact with it in different ways. Use the flow of particles to investigate the forces present in the universe. Explore the universe once it has fully expanded. Experiment to see which interactions are available at any given time.

flowmo tells the story of the universe through nothing but the interaction of particles and the atmosphere created by the music. It is an experiment in abstract and minimalistic narrative design.

- Full multitouch support, up to 11 fingers
- Quick and responsive interactions
- Pinch-to-zoom to view the universe at different scales once it has fully expanded
- Complex world which follows its own laws of physics
- All interactions emerge from these laws and are not hard-coded
- Chaotic system with emergent behaviour
- Try to create behaviours which have never been seen before!
- Discover the forces governing the universe through interaction and exploration


While playing flowmo, you may find that you are switching between apps, or bringing up the multitasking bar. This occurs when you use more than 3 fingers to interact with the game.

To stop this happening, quit flowmo and go to your iPad Settings. Choose 'General' on the left-hand tab. Scroll down to the bottom, and set Multitasking Gestures to OFF.
