A downloadable experience

Beyond The Lens is currently unplayable as the server the game relies on has been permanently shut down.

I am currently working on solutions to make the game playable again, thank you for your patience.

Such an amazing experience! I haven't played anything that makes use image synthesis in quite the way this does. The pure mystique of not knowing what weird worlds lay around you is so enthralling. 

It's been great to follow this project and watch it evolve. I just never get tired of running around snapping photos :)
