Mondrian - Abstraction in Beauty is a full-circle block breaking game about video game art history. Inspired by the works of the De Stijl masters’ limitations on form and color, Mondrian - Abstraction in Beauty takes an abstract look at the history of video game art, through unlockable features like paddles, balls, powerups, and screen effects. The game is dynamically generated, with millions of level combinations and endless replayability. Mondrian - Abstraction in Beauty is launching for PC on Steam, IndieGameStand, and itch.io in Fall, 2015.
