Indie developer MixedBag is working on a game two years in the making, forma.8. forma.8 is an action-adventure game that follows the classic Metroidvania formula.
You take on the role of forma.8 and explore the plant, dealing with its hostile natives, searching for clues to unravel the story. The game has no verbal coummunication, rather, everything is conveyed to the player via images, sounds, or gameplay itself.In the distant future a small exploration probe, forma.8, is stranded alone ... on an alien planet. it was parted from its companions ... and has a life or death mission to accomplish: it must find and recover a powerful energy source deep under the surface before its too late.
Physics will apparently play a huge role in the game.
From a technical standpoint, the game will be visually-brilliant. Everything was rendered at the highest resolution possible, resulting in no pixels, only smooth lines. The game will look stunning at 1080p, and will run at 60 fps. The soundtrack is being dome by Qubit.Physics is a big part of forma.8, too; everything in the world is physics based, with plants, ropes, liquids, enemies, rocks, and all the moving elements interacting and reacting in a realistic way, offering unexpected twists to the game.
