Up the down staircase

We’ve dabbled in fringe Escher art before. This time it’s a video game creating 3d world’s from Escher drawings. Planned for release on PlayStation later this year Echochrome will let you direct small marionette-like figures through Escher’s impossible structures. And this is not the only video game that features art. You can also look for Oblivion a game where you try to save a painter known as Rythe who has fallen into one of his own paintings. To find out more about Echochrome go here.
