I have recently started to develop an obsession over the use of dimensions in games.It started with Crypt of the NecroDancer, which I consider to be the absolute best rhythm game ever made. I have thought about why I think so for a long time, and I concluded that one of the reasons is the way it uses spatial dimensions.
