About This Game

Floating Point is a free, peaceful game about using a grappling hook to swing yourself gracefully through randomly generated spaces. In the air, you're fighting gravity. When you splash down beneath the water, you're fighting your own buoyancy to swing yourself further into the depths.

The only objective is to collect points, and the only thing that increases your points is swinging swiftly, smoothly and elegantly without hitting anything. As you pick up momentum, you start to glow, the bars you're collecting rise up, the music kicks in, and your trajectory burns a bright red line in the air, drawing huge, beautiful mathematical curves of your arcing flight.

Also the name is a pun, so that's cool.

A very simple game with simple mechanics, and pretty much nothing except for you (the ball), the wire you create, and the cubes and water.

Oh, and the fantastic music.
Honestly, it's a small game but if you just want to relax a bit and enjoy a peaceful game, give this a go. It's worthwhile.

Worth playing now and then. Don't worry about the points, just relax and swing and bounce around. It's really that simple in concept, but getting the hang of swinging (particularly when you're "too high") can be tricky.

Possibly the most relaxing - yet simple - game on Steam. Maybe even on the Internet.

Pretty good for relaxing.

Just wear some headphones, and start swinging. At first, it might not seem like much, but after some concentration and a few minutes, you'll be deep in a trance like state, relaxed, you will only care about points, and about how good it feels to swing smoothly and with elegance from platform to platform.

This game reminds me of those little floaty bits you see sometimes and Stewie Griffen wrote a song about it on Family Guy. But the little floating thing turned red and into a dot and is also spider man, you see the blocks the floating point flings off of are metaphores for its depression and how it surived lung cancer. The red beams coming out of the blocks are the problems the cancer and depression and how you must gain momentem to topple your problems. But if you lose momentem you also lose motivation. You see its a metaphore. 10/10 would keep playing
