Unmechanical? That’s the nice way to describe our father. It’s also the name of a puzzle adventure PC and iOS video game coming from Indie developers Talawa Games and Teotl Studios. PC Games will be able to play Unmechanical on August 8th. iOS gamers will be able to play the game a few weeks later. Unmechanical’s game trailer’s visuals remind us a bit of the indie game Machinariun from Amanita Design.
Here’s the description of Unmechanical from the game developers:
“Unmechanical, an award-winning 2.5D side-scroller which combines tricky puzzle solving, alluring exploration, and an engrossing atmosphere. The game had humble beginnings as a student project and since then both game and team has grown. “Unmechanical has been about taking on something for real and working our fingers to the bone to get it done. It’s our hopes and ambitions combined into this very personal, unique, and awesome adventure that’s crafted with lots of love.”Said Marko Permanto, project lead for the Unmechanical team.
Unmechanical begins with a twist of fate as you’re spirited away by a network of coiled pipes into a mysterious underworld. You find yourself in a strange environment that pulsates from mechanic and organic machinery alike, and your journey to freedom begins. Flying freely through the odd and fantastic surroundings, a powerful tractor beam lets you pick up objects and interact with the world.
Your quest for freedom requires you to solve a great variety of puzzling challenges, and while it’s easy to pick up and play, later challenges may prove very difficult indeed. On your adventure you might also begin to understand what it all means–The underworld may be more than it seems, the fateful descent more than just chance, and you might not be entirely alone after all…
