The Game

ABRISS is a physics-destruction puzzle game in stylish surreal-futuristic city worlds.

Build structures from parts to let them crash into your targets. Unlock new parts, destroy more, witness entropy at its worst in digital-brutalist cityscapes. Build to destroy.

We have named the unique abstract style of the game Mainboard Brutalism. It’s inspired by the surrealist works of Zdzisław Beksiński, Hans Rudolf Giger, the german pioneers of electronic music and constructivist and brutalist architecture.

ABRISS was born from the student project Antitect. During the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, Till Freitag, Friedrich Beyer and Johannes Knop, who knew each other well from University, teamed up to develop the game for commercial release and formed the Randwerk Games cooperative. Randwerk secured support from the incubator program at the DE:HIVE Institute and ABRISS receives funding by the Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg Media fund.

Abriss, der
[ˈapʁɪs]

1. Demolition, Teardown
2. A torn-off part, the act of ripping something off, separating
3. A brief summary or description, an abstract
4. colloquial: A really good party, a party that escalates

The Devs

The game is made by the Randwerk Cooperative. We are three students from East-Berlin, trying new ways of making games with old cooperative principles. We believe that a good work-life balance, fair pay and a democratic studio will both increase game quality and minimize crunch.

Till Freitag

Till writes the custom build & destruction system. Every explosion you see, every piece of debris, every crack does exactly what it should. VFX and Core Gameplay.

Johannes Knop

“What do you do?” “Uuuh – several things”. A true Jack of all trades, Johannes does programming, sound design, UI, project management and even writes presskits.

Friedrich Beyer

The man behind the imagery, the style, the one and only. The sculptor, the painter, the artist. Not only a fantastic concept and tech artist, but also producing most assets.
