Description
Release date: Summer 2015
Soft Body is a soothing bullet hell set in a meditative, musical world. As the player paints the world's geometry, levels will constantly shift and rearrange themselves in order to trick, trap, and challenge the player. Inspired by the simplicity of twin-stick shooters, every aspect of the game highlights the fluid motion and control of the player's snake-like avatars, the Soft Body and the Ghost Body. Players can control these two similar characters at the same time. This challenging mechanic not only creates a high skill ceiling but also provides the unique experience of learning how to split one's mind (like singing and playing an instrument at the same time).

Development has centered around a single question: How can I make movement feel great and rewarding? This question has driven the game's development and informs almost every aspect of the design. From the shape of the bullet patterns, to the sound of painting a wall, Soft Body's mechanics encourage movement and give personality to the game's tense and joyful fiction. I want people to take tons of small risks and push their luck by skirting fields of projectiles, and I want them find fun and choices in their characters' flowing animation and to push themselves to master the game's idiosyncratic control scheme.

Features

• A “bullet heaven” game: a new kind of twin-stick shooter that is both challenging and relaxing
• A flowing and meditative visual experience: from the shape of the bullet patterns, to the sound of painting a wall, Soft Body's mechanics encourage movement and give personality to the game's tense, joyful sounds and beautiful, minimalist environments
• Worlds shift and reconfigure around you: as you paint the world, layers peel away and new obstacles and enemies emerge
• Control two avatars at the same time: learn to split your mind and master this challenging mechanic
