Interview on Gamasutra and more details on forma.8
forma.8 is on Rock Paper Shotgun
Description
Release date: TBA 2014
forma.8 is MixedBag’s own take on the classic metroidvania formula and the kind of game that, as a two-person indie developer, anyone tells you ‘hey, don’t start with something big like this!’... err...


In a distant future, the small exploration probe forma.8 is stranded alone on the surface of an alien planet. He got parted away from his companions by an accidental event and has a life or death mission to accomplish: he needs to find and recover a powerful energy source deep under the surface before it’s too late. Ancient civilisations, great perils and dystopian visions awaits him, and not everything is as it seems...

Floating gracefully in mid air, with a control system that aims to give the player a true sense of flying, our little hero forma.8 starts with no powers, no weapons and no hints of what to do and where to go: it’s up to the player to explore the planet, deal with its often hostile inhabitants, and slowly uncover the story.

There’s no verbal communication in the game, everything is conveyed to the player only with images and sounds.

A unique mix of hand drawn vector graphics and 3d elements brings the world of forma.8 to life with a unique and vibrant look, while the fully physics based world offers unexpected twists to the gameplay.

  • an expansive world to explore
  • an intriguing and mysterious story
  • action!
  • puzzles!
  • dystopian visions!
  • combat!
  • secrets to uncover
  • lots of enemies
  • lots of BIG enemies
  • some more B I G G E R enemies
  • ...and all the power-ups you need to take care of them and to avoid all the nasty stuff you'll face on the remote, alien planet
