Over a month ago, we reported on upcoming Windows game Systole taking steps toward a crowdfunding campaign. The campaign has launched today on Kickstarter.
According to the project’s Kickstarter page, the game is an “acrobatic 2.5D platformer set in a twisted mechanical world! Use magnetism to attract or repel yourself as you explore new horizons” and will be made available on both the Windows PC and Mac as well as consoles. The following are some highlights taken from the page:
As a little robot, you awake in a twisted mechanical uterus. With no instructions, you embark on a quest to discover the mysterious world you were born into, the events that led to your birth, and, eventually, yourself.
Wielding the power of magnetism, you’ll be able to swing from poles, attach to various surfaces and repel yourself from platforms while devising fast and clever ways to overcome challenges and hostiles that stand before you.
Inspired by the storytelling of Limbo, the acrobatics of Prince of Persia and Mega Man’s structure, SYSTOLE is a game that immerses players into a deep story filled with fast challenges that will test even the most focused minds!
The game uses magnetism to control the gameplay and the graphics so far look pretty impressive.
