  • Explore the park that city officials built instead of a Frank Lloyd Wright megastructure

  • Step beneath the clock that residents have long challenged each other to kiss their butts under

  • Let the benches watch you at what’s been locally dubbed: “Eyeball Park”


You play as a groggy butterfly emerging from its chrysalis, excited to escape the city in an upcoming migration.

But you missed it, and worse yet, you see mysterious, transparent buildings and people glitching in and out of existence on top of the park you call home, getting realer and realer the longer you watch.

Flutter around downtown to figure out what’s happening and save the Steel City from chaos, and feel the delicate strands connecting every era of Pittsburgh along the way.
