A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

It's 2020, and the future is darker than we ever contemplated. You and many others have been locked away in automated internment camps. To the rest of the world you no longer exist, forgotten, cast aside, never to be seen again. Your crime? Exposing corruption at the highest levels of the government.

But your time in Camp 17 may now be over. If you're smart. If you're fast. If you're stealthy. Sneak out and obtain one of the Remote Diagnostic Tools. Use it to tune into the frequency and phase of the motion sensors, cameras and door locks. Slip by the cameras and motion sensors by matching their signal. Unlock doors by tuning into their signal.

Go fast. Go quiet. Escape.

Disclaimer: Resonance is still in development. The current download represents what we're aiming for with the introductory level.


Once you acquire the Remote Diagnostic Tool:

  • Hold the Left Mouse Button and use the scrollwheel to change frequency
  • Hold the Right Mouse Button and use the scroll wheel to change phase/rotation

Resonance was originally created as part of the 2017 Global Game Jam. We would like to thank RiverCity Labs for hosting us and Screen Queensland for providing food.
