Stained is a side-scrolling, platforming and combat action game set in an ancient, mysterious castle featuring detailed 3D environments with a continually changing game world. Events in Stained are triggered by breaking objects placed in and around the castle, and outcomes are determined by the combination of glass pieces that litter the ground, leading to a variety of experiences. Novel ways to break objects have to be thought of at times, which will keep the player guessing what the next puzzle will be. In any fight in the game victory is usually temporary, as defeated foes may form again, or reassemble to form entirely new ones. The gameplay is fully interactive and physics based – each character’s uncanny abilities have to be kept in mind to think of innovative ways to proceed through the game!

Five games -- Stained, Tropical Heat - Jetski Racing, LogiGun, Tales of Maj'Eyal and Crayon Chronicles -- from developers we hope will be the indie stars of tomorrow. There's also a great bonus album from Stephen Pearlman The Raven - for those who beat the $8 price.

I sincerely hate it when people missuse the name 'PHYSICS BASED'

This game IS NOT PHYSICS BASED and therefore will simply not get my attention at all.

Let alone the incredibly dull and repetitive sounds and music used in the trailer.

whilst your first point had merit (albeit put in an abrasive manner and using caps) the second one is just not constructive and therefore will simply not get my attention at all.

Kind of odd the dev even replied to such an ignoramous comment imho, but i guess the dev is a touch more mature in their approach to things.

The name is very fitting, stained glass and the overall concept looks fun and very promising to play.

This appears to be one of those little gems you un earth on rare occasions.

Hi, Please go to the mydocument folder and delete ogre.cfg and stained.cfg files and restart the game. If that does not work I will give you another solution.
