I have decided to post news snippets again but instead of boring shit like "Oh, a new Call of Duty has been announced" or "This version of Assassin's Creed might not be shit" I'm going to post about games that look cool, are probably indie, and aren't playable. If they were playable I'd play them and post about it somewhere else. Sorted.
Yonder is a game that ticks all of the above boxes. Developed by siblings under the banner of Venturous Games the game might be one of the most attractive I've seen, indie or otherwise. That is, in part, down to the incredible animation which I've tried to capture in GIF form but it remains to be seen whether or not that loads!
"The game is a two dimensional adventure game with an emphasis on co-operative interaction." Co-op is often a buzzword but Yonder allows your to switch between the characters as you see fit to complete puzzles if you don't have anyone else to play with. Like me.
While there isn't much else to go on just yet it's easy to see why Yonder is already attracting envious glances from people, and longing glances from people like myself who just want to get our weather beaten hands on it. The promise of dialogue free narrative is an added bonus for me, but until the game is playable I'll remain my usual, skeptical self.
