The Plane Effect is a dark adventure game. It is a result of collaboration between Innovina Interactive and StudioKiku, and was published by PQube.


In The Plane Effect, we take on the role of a character called Solo, who we accompany on his last day at work. After leaving the office, the protagonist intends to return home to his waiting family, but things unexpectedly start to get complicated. He is not only unsure whether he actually has a home and a family, but also feels that he is constantly being watched. In addition, he finds himself caught up in a whirlwind of events that break with logic and his previous perception of time and space.


In The Plane Effect we observe the action from an isometric view. Although we start the game in the office where Solo works (or rather, worked), we soon find ourselves in increasingly grim and strange locations. We visit, among others, the city streets, where we can encounter electrocuting drones, and we also find ourselves in gloomy interiors filled with technology. We explore these environments and solve puzzles, witnessing more and more strange events and avoiding dangers. As we progress, we try to solve the mystery of the protagonist's place in the world and the situation in which he found himself.

Technical aspects

Graphics of The Plane Effect has a simple and unique style, which may bring to mind the graphic design of the game Inside. The gloomy atmosphere is created by the limited colours and lighting of the locations, as well as the music that accompanies the game.
