First look at the game
Description
Journey to another planet and spend your life discovering its secrets in order to bring back your loved one. An unique adventure game for PC/Mac/Linux.

The Way is a 2D puzzle platformer game inspired by classic titles like Another World, Heart of Darkness and Flashback. Seeing the remakes and re-releases of those titles we realised that there are no new games that would have similar spirit and gameplay.
It is a real shame, because those were some of our favorite titles back in the day and we still play them once in a while. Revisiting those games always makes us wish for something new that would deliver the similar experience and emotions. We decided to fill in this empty spot by creating our own game - The Way!

Without giving too much away, The Way tells a story about a member of space explorers team, who lost his beloved one and cannot accept her death. Finding ancient writtings on eternal existence during one of his last expeditions makes him come back there in search of the meaning of life itself. He will soon know that the planet has its own secrets and problems that he will need to face in order to get what he is looking for.

Key features:
Immersing sci-fi story,
Unique alien planet to explore,
Retro pixelart style rich with animations,
Emphasis on the atmosphere and emotions,
Multi-function alien artifact (telekinesis, relfective shield and teleportation!),
Mind-bending puzzles,
Level design inspired by Éric Chahi's masterpieces.
