A cross country road trip strands you in a mysterious town lost amidst the towering mesas and swaying dunes of the great wild west. Will you beckon the glowing call of its lone storefront and embark on a fantastical multidimensional walkabout through space and time?

Experience a beautiful environment where nothing is what it seems, a spatial labyrinth where doors always lead to different destinations, an anomalous zone where mass gingerly defies gravity, a universe of inspiration, of dreams,  of everything and nothing: Experience 0°N 0°W .

  • This is a peaceful adventure apt for all ages; it was exhibited in the Children's Museum of the Arts NYC to a great reception by children and adults alike.
  • Entirely non linear gameplay in an open world where everything you see is accessible. There are no barriers or invisible walls to block your curiosity; walk to the very edge of the world to see what happens...
  • A minimalist reinterpretation of modern gameplay mechanisms that eliminates loading screens, user interfaces, inventories, skill trees, stats, quick time events, puzzles, etc. This is gameplay distilled to its very essence with the sole objective to explore in wonder!
  • A randomized level progression system that provides a different journey each time you play. All the levels are artistically hand crafted with love, however the manner in which all these levels intertwine changes continuously; giving each player a unique experience.
  • All player instructions and menu options are represented via symbols making the game accessible to all geographical audiences. There is no need for subtitles or dubbed voiceovers.
  • An evocative musical soundtrack composed of cascading arpeggios and vast soundscapes inspired by the ambient, minimalist and avant garde movements of the 20th and 21st century (brian eno, terry riley, alva noto, steve reich, philip glass, boards of canada). There is a total of 7 hours of continuous music. All other sounds were field recorded throughout various natural and urban environments or generated with various synthesizers and musical instruments.

"Find myself drifting back every so often because it never quite settles. I feel vaguely like a ghost with unresolved business"


“A world begging to be experienced”

-Cultured Vultures

"It's definitely got an air of genuine mystery that's hard to find in a video game these days"


"Simply about exploring fantastical and colourful worlds, escaping reality"




Work on 0°N 0°W started in early 2014 after reading an article on ‘null islands’, cartographic error dumps for the geographical information system (GIS). The concept of a ‘physical’ location for geospatial anomalies was so fascinating it propelled design; what if somebody entered an alternative gps dimension of spatial bugs? The focus was to model and musically accompany everything to transmit this atmosphere of an oneiric anomalous world between fantasy and reality. In January of 2015 project ‘dream.sim’ was released in illustrating gameplay. The aesthetics were inspired by the original Tron movie and CAD drawings. After positive reactions we entered Steam Greenlight (R.I.P). A few months later after the release of a second public alpha the project was voted successfully by the Greenlight community for a Steam release and also invited to join the Nintendo Developer Program for the Nintendo Wii. 2016 - 2017 were years of exhausting 24/7 developing marathons that consumed metric tons of ramen and coffee, highlights included expos at EGX's Rezzed Zone and The Children’s Museum of the Arts. Its 2018, four winters have passed and we are ecstatic to finally show the world 0°N 0°W !
