Well, the best way I have to describe the game is "Super Meat Boy meets Portal" aka "Reach the chamber exit fast and without dying". Sounds easy, uh? It is! Except for traps, lasers, lava waterfalls and the ever spinning saws. Levels are designed to kill you (and they will, often) and you'll find that the only way to reach the exit door is to exploit the level itself with a sequence of running, jumping, wall grinding and wall jumps.
The closed beta started just one week ago and people are already hating/loving the game! 28000 levels played -> 26000 deaths :D

First, I need to thank all the beta testers! We received a lot of feedback about the game and this version already contains many of the suggestions we received as well as lot of bug fixes.
We also learned that Gearscape is an hard game, harder than we thought: so far the beta testers have started the levels 28000 times resulting in 26000 deaths...wow :)
Don't forget, if you want to try the game for free and help us refine the levels, just create yourself an account in the forums and then send us an email at email@example.com including your forum username and we'll send you how to download the game.
Thanks all for the support, see you on the forums.
