Reminds me of the best things about Another World and Perfect Cell with additional mechanics. Look forward to trying it.

Another World was one of the main inspiration for the look of the project, we (me and the graphic designer on forma.8) are huge fans of the game, although forma.8 is very different, gameplay wise.

I'm really enjoying the visual style and the coolly ambient vibe from the OST. I'm hoping the gameplay will to these two elements justice. On the iPad, the real estate this game commands will definitely give it the deceptively illusive, wonderfully immersive and generously expansive experience lacking in so many games. Good show so far, dudes.

Looks great guys, loved the style of Another World. You nailed it.

Looking forward to the release.

Very curious about the controls. Any clues on how you control that lil forma.8?

Thank you!
Graphics aside, gameplay and the control system are our two primary concerns: our idea was to make a 'real' game that works on touch devices, with the right action pace, the right timing, the right control sensibility and so on. We hope to have nailed it, but time will tell!

We'll release another trailer in some weeks, with a lot more action on screen. This first teaser is deliberately slow and show only a fraction of what's possible to do in the game.

Thanks! Hope to have the game ready for late april/may.

Yeah, just a couple of clues: we ideally divide the screens in two half. Dragging your finger on the left half moves forma.8, tapping and swiping on the right half uses the different forma.8 powers. The movement is inertia based, and you need to move the finger only a bit to move forma.8 on screen. It's difficult to explain, and easier to try, but after a bit of practice you can be really, really precise.

The game is action packed, and having a very reactive control system was a priority.
