Gameplay feature #01

So we promised we would be posting something a bit more gameplay heavy this week, and we have provided! Here is an overview of some of the mechanics that the game will have and why we think they will be awesome!


HUD_button_earl   HUD_button_arrow_right  Swapping characters  HUD_button_arrow_right    HUD_button_mo

If you’ve played the Lost Vikings, you’ll be somewhat familiar with this mechanic – you swap between the game’s two main characters and with their own set of unique abilities they must work together two progress through the labyrinth.

Why is this awesome?
it will force the player to consider each character’s position in order to solve the game’s puzzle. You don’t see this too often in video games and we’re eager to see what puzzles we can come up with for you guys!

HUD_button_Bomb
HUD_button_arrow_right  Bombs  HUD_button_arrow_right

Earl, who’s the more technical of the two will be able to use bombs, blow stuff up – do we need to say more? We are thinking of other ways of using the bombs though, so look forward to hearing more about this in the future.

Why is this awesome?
Do we really need to explain this? *whispers* explosions.

HUD_button_Rope
HUD_button_arrow_right  Rope Tool  HUD_button_arrow_right

Not the final name, nor graphic, but it explains what it is very well. The rope tool is very handy as it lets you traverse gaps and pull objects from far away among other things. This is Mo’s tool and when he uses it Earl can cross the gaps with ease.

Why is this awesome?
It can really help make the puzzles a lot smarter – of course, it all comes down to the designers, but we’re confident they can pull of some clever puzzles for you to enjoy!

 


 

Next week will be a surprise update (read: we haven’t decided yet – so stay tuned and find out)

Also a reminder that the easter egg hunt is still on-going over at www.retrogenestudio.com – on person has found the easter egg, but you can still grab second and third place an be one of the first to enter the egg hunter’s hall of fame. Also be sure to check out Ready Player One which we have based this game of easter egg hunting on.
