Vitrum Stage Editor released!
Upcoming: Vitrum Stage Editor!
Description
Release date: Released in September 25th, 2012
Vitrum is a 3D, first person, puzzle/platform game.

The main character is an android designed to convert energy from crystals into powers. The android can absorb energy in each of his hands, allowing him to combine different powers. One of the coolest powers is the ability to invert the gravity, because it's 3d and because the player can freely choose when and where to use it!

Vitrum takes place in a desert laboratory full of different colored crystals. Some crystals grant powers, others are harmful to the android.

The player will have to figure out how to use the crystals, solve the puzzles and finish each stage in Vitrum.

Features:
  • Each crystal color represents a power, explore each color and discover every power the android can execute.
  • Combine powers to solve more difficult puzzles.
  • Explore 3D gravity inversion, materialization of crystal platforms, super high jumps and other powers.
  • Avoid radioactive crystals, death crystals and others.
  • Collect crystal shards to unlock Insane stages.
  • More than 45 stages in the campaign.
  • Create and Share your own stages.
  • Play and rate others' stages.
