A brand new developer with a brand new game, Team TripleSlash wants to take you on a platformer adventure that really doesn't have platforms in the normal sense. You will be put into control with the last living robot, and it will be your job to utilize your magnetic powers to navigate through levels put in front of you. Now for sure this game is coming out for the OUYA, but there are other platforms that the developer is aiming to release this for. Does this sound like something you would be interested in? Well if so, or if you need a little more information, let me introduce you to the Press Release, but before I do let me just tell you that the wait to actually get this game on the OUYA won't be long as it is scheduled for release on August 20th. So here's the press release:
Positive and Negative Collide in Magnetic By Nature, Coming to OUYA on August 20th
Machine-Age Adventure Game from Team Tripleslash Explores Platforming Without Platforms
SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Aug 13, 2014 –OUYA today announced that Magnetic By Nature, a puzzle platformer influenced by art-deco architecture and governed by the universal laws of magnetic attraction, will be released on August 20. The debut title from Team Tripleslash, Magnetic By Nature will be available for $9.99 exclusively on the OUYA store, and is coming to PC, Mac and Linux at a later date.
In Magnetic By Nature, players take on the role of the last robot alive in the ruins of a fallen machine-age civilization. Empowered with the ability to control their own magnetic field at will and surrounded by a veritable playground of magnetized metal, players can launch themselves through the air using the forces of attraction and repulsion. By swingingbetween polarized points, they can traverse a beautifully desolate post-apocalyptic wasteland on their quest to reactivate their decommissioned robot companions.
The richness of the game’s colorful, tastefully muted art style and dynamic soundscape helps to flesh out the vibrant world of Magnetic By Nature. With its fluid, unconventional movement mechanic, over 100 unique levels, and a multitude of both static and reactive magnets on which to swing, the game is a refreshing new take on the platforming genre.
