About Love, Hate and the other ones is a puzzle game, in which you influence your surroundings by the force of Hate and the power of Love. They shouldnʻt have pushed the button! Life on the hill was just perfect for Love and Hate before that shiny red device appeared. Suddenly, they are trapped in a dark and spooky cave, far away from home. Now it is up to you to control the opposing forces of Love and Hate. They will soon meet a lot of Other Ones, wondering how they might react when Loved, or when Hated. Find a way through caves and ice, castles and factories, all by the might of your puzzling! If you ever return to that hill, life will be sweet again...


The first version of the game was developed by T.Bilgeri. It was based on a shortfilm series he did during his studies. After getting very positive feedback, Tobias teamed up with brush&bear, two students at the University of Kassel, and started to work on an iPhone Version. The final game is now published by Black Pants via the Apple App Store.
