Our liquid-physics based puzzle platformer 'Vessel' is now slated to release on March 1st! PC launch is first with the game available on Steam or DRM free on StrangeLoopGames.com.
Vessel was a finalist in the 2010 Indie Game Festival for Technical Excellence, and a finalist that same year for the Indie Game Challenge. The key mechanic of the game is bringing simulated liquid to life in the form of Fluros, liquid-formed creatures that perform labor for humans but begin to adapt to their environments.
We released two videos with our announcement, the first is an Invention Report by the main character Arkwright, explaining his Fluro invention:
We'll be releasing Invention Reports #2 (Seeds) and #3 (The Accelerator) soon.
Our second video is a developer playthrough giving an in-depth look at our liquid mechanics and how we create puzzles out of them:
More to come, thanks for watching.
