Ping is an exploration adventure game where the player's goal is to bring life back to the world. The player sees the world in the form of waves that are generated by sources of life and energy. These waves propagate outward and illuminate surfaces as they pass over them. Without these waves, and without life/energy, the world is black. The player has the ability to create life that exists temporarily and can use this life to further explore the world. Ping is a game about exploration, expression, nature, and destiny.
