The origin of 'Macrocosm' starts as his bachelorproject concluding his studies at the Zuerich University of Arts. The game was designed with an easy and intuitive approach to its gameplay. The central question was how game related content is best communicated to the player. The focus whilst developing was on investigating possibilities of character control and different ways of displaying storyline content. In the end, 'Macrocosm' is a game that that keeps the player interested with an easy to learn jet challenging gameplay mechanism. Information is communicated in realtime, in form of speech bubbles presented while playing. To ensure a smooth experience, the game has an uniterrupted gamplay; i.e. it does not switch to menus as it transitions from level to level.
