Description

In Fake Illusions, players are tasked with fields of optical illusions with the task to fish out a cheater, an illusion that's trying to decieve you even more than usual! They might be actually longer or shorter than the other illusions on the screen, or a different color, or might even conceal themselves with annoying distractions. It's your job to see through the deception! Fake Illusions makes ten classic optical illusions playable, a shuffle mode where all illusions follow each other up, and an endless mode.

History

The idea of this game was born out of wanting to make a game about optical illusions. The gameplay with the faker ended up working well with the Hermann Grid, so I gradually started adding more illusions. Fake Illusions mostly uses optical illusions which were discovered around the 19th century.

Features

  • Ten optical illusions playable for the first time ever! Including Shuffle and Endless modes.
  • Five distractions for each illusion, deceiving your eyes in clever and fun ways. Over 40 different deceptions!
  • Accessible: difficulty setting, no text, easy for spectators to guess along
  • Relaxing sounds to accompany the eye-bending sights
