This Bitsy3D art game offers a retelling of Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions (1884) by Edwin Abbott Abbott. Flatland is a notable early scientific romance that combines then-contemporary speculations on a fourth spatial dimension with a satirical depiction of the stringent social hierarchies characterising Victorian Britain.

For a relatively short story, Flatland is (partly by necessity) highly verbose, and so, to make it fit within the reasonable limits of Bitsy, much had to be omitted entirely or abridged drastically. Even then, this piece is heavily text-driven, and is best enjoyed as such.
