OCTAHEDRON is greenlit!
Making Platforms
Description
Release date: 2016




◈  D.I.Y. PLATFORMING? ◈

OCTAHEDRON is a platformer unlike any other. You create your own platforms with the press of a button, as you jump! In each level you get a specific amount of platform "ammunition", which recharges once you touch the ground. Jump, then press X or RT to summon a small platform out of thin air, right under your feet. See how this works in action in the trailer above or in this gif:



Using this special skill you will traverse and escape strange subterranean world Veetragoul, in a psychedelic vertical D.I.Y. platforming adventure! Ascend vertical levels, find the missing parts of your octahedral head, uncover secrets and unlock powerful abilities that turn your platforms into weapons and puzzle solving tools.


♫  SLAVE TO THE RHYTHM  ♫

But there's more! The further you progress, the more you will have to pay attention to the rhythm of the music. Enemies move and dance, obstacles rotate, twitch and respond to the THUMP of every beat. Time your jumps and surf on your newly acquired laser platform, slide over your foes and roast them before they catch up with you.

Yes, soon you'll put the simple pleasures of the basic platform behind you, and using your powerful new laser platform you'll finally be able to fight back, like this:




◔  THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME  ◔

■ Super tight 2D action platforming at 60 fps
■ Entirely new and seamless platform creation mechanic
■ Pumping, atmospheric EDM soundtrack by the artist behind classic trance acts
      (Flutlicht, S.H.O.K.K., many more)
■ Enemies and level elements that respond to or follow the beat of the music
■ Discover and unlock new platforms with unique abilities
■ 50+ handcrafted levels across multiple themed worlds
■ Platform PAR system: earn medals by completing levels with the lowest amount of
      platforms possible
■ No handholding or tutorials, all levels and mechanics carefully designed to be discovered and
      explored on your own
