Default The Way - Action puzzle platformer inspired by Another World, on Kickstarter


Kickstarter
IOS/Android goal at $25,000


Youtube link | Pop Up

The Way is a 2D puzzle platformer game inspired by classic titles like Another World, Heart of Darkness and Flashback. Seeing the remakes and re-releases of those titles we realised that there are no new games that would have similar spirit and gameplay.

Without giving too much away, The Way tells a story about a member of space explorers team, who lost his beloved one and cannot accept her death. Finding ancient writtings on eternal existence during one of his last expeditions makes him come back there in search of the meaning of life itself.

He will soon know that the planet has its own secrets and problems that he will need to face in order to get what he is looking for.



- Immersing sci-fi story,
- Unique alien planet to explore,
- Retro pixelart style rich with animations,
- Emphasis on the atmosphere and emotions,
- Multi-function alien artifact (telekinesis, relfective shield and teleportation!)
- Mind-bending puzzles
- Level design inspired by Éric Chahi's masterpieces

Holy poo yes

Edit: Just read the description. If we can't get Hyper Light Drifter, at least we'll have this! I am instantly extremely excited. 8k in 2 days? I can see this getting to the 25k stretch goal reaaaally easily

The backdrops are really cool. But why no love for Nintendo? I'm sure WiiU can handle that at practically the same cost of PS/XBox

Agreed. We usually try to downplay the Kickstarter connection on upcoming games, but hell, this looks amazing. Unless another mod steps in, I'm okay with the OP.

Yeah, I was hesitant to start a thread for a Kickstarter, but considering how the funding is going, the IOS version seems very likely and I knew this was a game you guys would probably be interested in
