Adventure 2017

This is the debut of Flying Carpet Games - members of the studio that formerly co-created many popular mobile games. The game offers a third-person action-adventure experience offering a story about a girl imprisoned in a castle, built using ancient technology, by an evil queen. However, the protagonist manages to cast off the invisible shackles with the help of a multipurpose robot. This is how their adventure begins; in order for the characters to regain their freedom, they will have to face the queen's guards and a massive number of interestingly designed traps. The game makes vivid references to the oldschool classic Ico (PlayStation 2), emphasizing the interactions between the two characters. The girl can reach hardly accessible areas; the robot on the other hand, shines with a sword in its metal hand, eliminating the enemies encountered and removing obstacles standing in their way.

Logic 19 November 2015

A combination of a two-dimensional platformer and a logic game created by the independent studio Brainseed Factory. The player assumes the role of an original protagonist, composed of four letters: "H", "E", "R" and "O", who traverses a dark world filled with threats. Exploring a fantasy land, avoiding countless traps, jumping across platforms and solving puzzles requiring the player to manipulate letters and create new words - these activities constitute the pillar of the game's mechanics. Creating words from letters is the key feature of the game, and this is how the player deactivates various traps and gains access to new locations. For instance, in order to open a gate, the player has to assemble the word "OPEN" from the four words given. Furthermore, the player often encounters various enemies capable of tearing the protagonist into shreds. Combat in this game requires us to create antonyms of words. A dark atmosphere present in the game was not built not only on a the minimalistic color palette applied by the developers, but also thanks to the soundtrack composed by musicians belonging to the Dutch sound producer SonicPicnic.
