I love indie games, if you are a frequent visitor you would not see this as a surprise. Every game that comes out seems to have some sort of recycled material that makes it blend in with its fellow genre specific games. Indie games are a great way for people to prove themselves as a great game developer and we have seen the creativity flow like a five-mile wide river. One simple but interesting game is Semblance.
The game is a 2-D platformer that hails all the way from Johannesburg, South Africa. You play as a blob that is made of playdough in a world that is also made of playdough. It has a very specific puzzle mechanic that allows the player to morph the environment to their advantage. Need to get to a ledge? Why not shape the world around you to help you reach your destination easier.
The visuals that are presented in this game are simple and striking. The gameplay looks very smooth, resulting in a very polished game. Proving that you don’t have to be from a major game label to release something that could be great. I can only hope that the rest of the game looks as good as what we have seen.
Semblance is set to release in 2018 on PC and Mac.
