Paul Caporicci Project Director at developers Creative Bytes Studios has this week revealed more details about the upcoming game Embers of Mirrim, but will be bringing back dual stick platforming during the spring months of 2017.
Check out the new teaser trailer below to see what you can expect from the game on the PlayStation 4 which offers an adventure-platformer that features a powerful creature called Mirrim, that possesses the ability to split into light and dark entities called Embers.
Caporicci explains a little more about the Embers and the games storyline :
The Light and Dark Embers are independently controlled by the left and right analog sticks and offer new ways to solve puzzles, overcome obstacles, and traverse through the world. While developing the mechanic, we found it satisfying to seamlessly transition back and forth between the traditional platforming and dual stick flight!
While working on the game, we were heavily inspired by games where you were always doing different things, like in the Uncharted or Rayman series. We mixed the splitting mechanic with traditional elements like classic platforming, puzzle-solving, boss battles, and intense chases.
Our story follows the plight of two proud races who must set aside their differences and come together… literally. As Mirrim, you carry the unique abilities of both races in a fight against an alien infection corrupting your beloved planet. Save your friends and unify forces to restore balance to the world.
Mirrim’s journey will take you from a thawing mountain to an aging forest. The characters and environments were influenced by our love of 80’s fantasy movies like The NeverEnding Story and The Dark Crystal. No adventure game would be complete without a variety of hidden secrets which are scattered throughout the world for you to discover!
Embers of Mirrim will be launching on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC systems, for more details jump over to the official Embers of Mirrim website by following the link below.
