windowframe is an extremely creative 2D pixel-style small indie game developed using the GameMaker Studio game engine by Daniel Linssen (from Australia, famous for extreme game production) in 2016. It was made for LD35 (Ludum Dare 35) in 48 hours.

windowframe comes with abstract graphics style, minimalist game plot, and especially the innovation way of gaming. Its core gameplay lies in your flexible adjustment to the game window – move, resize, etc., in order to get the most favorable way of walkthrough.
