There is No Game: Wrong Dimension is a puzzle game where you play as the “User,” a person who just wants to play a game. The Narrator, the other character, tries to convince you that the app you have downloaded is not a game at all and that you should just quit. The User and the Narrator get sucked into an alternate dimension that is full of different types of games. The two of you need to work together to defeat the evil Mr. Glitch, save the Narrator’s love Gigi, and get back to your home world.

In order to navigate the puzzles in the game, the player needs to manipulate objects on the screen to think of creative ways to solve them. This may involve rearranging letters in a word to spell something new, using a coin you earned to unscrew a panel, or manipulating traditional icons like the volume button and a mouse cursor. 

There is No Game: Wrong Dimension is available for purchase on Android, iOS, and Steam. The game is rated for children 4 and up but due to some language, we recommend that 9 and up is appropriate for the content of this game. 

There Is No Game: Wrong Dimension  helps kids practice and improve the following skills:

Flexibility: Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations. 

In order to solve the puzzles in There is No Game: Wrong Dimension, the player needs to be able to think creatively and come up with unconventional and unique solutions. This means that methods of solving puzzles in traditional games might not work the same way. For people who struggle with adjusting their plans or trying new things, they may find that it takes them a lot longer to come up with the solution to the puzzle at hand. For these players, hints are usually available to guide them through parts of the puzzles that are particularly difficult. Also, the first chapter of the game is designed to walk the player through this type of creative problem solving so that they know what to expect when there are harder puzzles in different levels. 

Organization: Arranging and coordinating materials in order to complete a task.

There are many tools within the game that are at your disposal for puzzle solving. The player of the game needs to remember what tool has what purpose and figure out the appropriate time to use them. For example, a hammer that shrinks what it hits is paired with a monocle that enlarges what it hits. In order to solve a puzzle involving a fight with an evil guard, the player needs to remember what tools they have and how they can best be applied to defeat the enemy and move on to the next area. For people who struggle with organization, they may find themselves making unnecessary mistakes or choosing the wrong tool for the wrong purpose. The first level of the game is a tutorial that guides the player through the use of certain tools, so players can practice keeping what tools they have organized. There are also hints that are available for players who are struggling with determining what tool they need for a particular situation.
