Happy new year 2021! We home you had a happy holiday season. We're back for 2021 to tell you more about the the concept of Outer Wonders, starting this Friday with a first overview of the interactions with the in-game environment.
Altering the environment: a key feature of Outer Wonders
In case you've read our blog post introducing Outer Wonders or our tweet summarizing the concept of the game, you have most likely understood that interacting with environment was one of the keys to progress in the adventure.
In case you did not, see for yourself below.
These interactions will allow you to reshape levels in order to fully take advantage of the concept of slippery maze (where moving in a direction causes the player to move until an obstacle is met) that Outer Wonders is based on.
Sometimes, the environment itself is enough
Altering the environment will not always be necessary to take full advantage of it though. In many cases, a bit of thinking or testing on an unaltered map will be sufficient, as shown below.
You will even be able to take your thinking to the next level. So to say.
These interactions pave the way for the creation of elaborate puzzles, but we wanted to take the concept even further. After all, Outer Wonders is a game about nature and ecology!
Summon the power of nature
As Bibi, you will also be able to acquire special powers related to natural elements, in order to be able to interact with some parts of the environment. Check out the example below showing the power of water!
You'll be able to acquire additional powers besides water to interact with specific parts of the environment. We'll be pleased to unveil more powers in future blog posts!
See you soon!
