Terry Cavanagh's VVVVVV was one of the best indie titles of 2010, not to mention one of the best games period, so we're really excited about From a Distance. Cavanagh designed the game for NYU Game Center's 2011 No Quarter Exhibition, and it was a finalist at Indiecade 2011 and a Game of the Show nominee at Eurgamer Expo 2011. Today, the game has been released completely free for Windows and Mac.

It's a puzzle game meant to be played by two people on separate computers in the same room, to emphasize "solitude in shared experiences." It might take you a while to figure out what to do, but that's half the fun—and hey, it's free. Download the game here and let us know what you think in the comments or on Twitter or Facebook.
