En-Dash Around Laser Obstacles In Hyphen

As long there's a full stop sometimes, at least

I like a good game of artful dodging, but I haven’t played anything in the genre in years. Maybe not since Messhof left it behind after releasing Flywrench. That makes Hyphen an appealing prospect: a neon game about a slowly spinning line moving through a maze without touching the walls. The spinning makes it feel like an abstracted, slow-motion version of that scene in a movie where the super-spy/ninja-thief backflips through a room full of moving lasers, and there’s a trailer and a demo below.

I don’t even see the hyphen anymore. All I see is Catherine Zeta-Jones.
The game is being made by a two-man UK indie outfit, and they’re planning on releasing the full game early this year. It’s up on Steam Greenlight of course, if you’re into that kind of thing.

It’ll have 36 levels when finished, though there’s four you can try right now via the demo on the site. I recommend playing it with the 360 controller for optimum moving-around-things.
