About Patrick's Parabox

Patrick's Parabox is a puzzle game about playing with recursion and infinities by pushing boxes into and out of each other. Each box contains its own 2-dimensional space that other boxes can enter and exit, creating ever deeper layers of boxes-within-boxes. This unique system gives rise to mind-bending puzzles which require a whole new way of thinking.

As the game progresses, the player slowly uncovers the full depth of the system. In situations where a box contains itself, you can use infinite recursion to your advantage to accomplish intricate feats. Elegant consequences emerge as the player delves into deeper layers of the system.

Patrick's Parabox won the 2019 IndieCade Developers Choice Award, which is voted on by nominated IndieCade Festival developers. See other IndieCade awards and award winners on the Awards page.
