Having had a quick look at the game on the fourth day of gamescom 2020, it became clear that indie games don’t have to hide behind AAA titles in terms of visuals if they step out of their pixel art/roguelike comfort zone. One plays as droid Seven who finds itself chased by machines and discovers an ancient civilization on an alien planet.
Clearly inspired by classic 90ies titles like Another World, its breathtaking cinematic presentation is complemented by platforming, puzzle, and stealth elements. Not being able to dispose of enemies at first, Seven soon makes use of the Drive Gun which creates darkness to hide in, absorbs light to activate machines or even takes control of enemies, using their abilities and then getting rid of them afterwards.
The game is out now on PC with a 10% launch discount that lasts until tomorrow, August 6, 2021, at 11 AM UTC.
