Not the most exciting week for those still awaiting passage through Greenlight, although Super Rude Bear Resurrection made it through in… hang on, less than a week? Wow. Let’s just hope it can live up to that kind of hype, eh? Oh, and three more also cleared the hills. You know, the green hills? No? Aw.
In Veer, you navigate the world through solving logical puzzles. The core mechanic used to do this is relative teleporting: Jumping between relative positions to pylons in the levels. This, in combination with the ability to change the direction of gravity, are the corner pieces of the game, where everything revolves around and is created for the core experience of puzzle solving.
In the game, the player must use logic, collect important items, and solve puzzles in order to guide Mii in his search to find his life partner Mo. Tracing her steps he embarks on a journey which becomes a self-seeking exploration regarding life choices and personal values. With its imaginative artwork, its compelling story and its relaxing tempo, it introduces the player to a quirky and serene universe.
Super Rude Bear Resurrection
Super Rude Bear Resurrection is a masocore platformer where dying helps. Whenever you die, you leave a permanent corpse behind that you can use as a meatshield, platform, paperweight etc. to get further – though if you’re good enough you never have to die at all. SRBR caters to speedrunners, but even a novice can beat it with enough corpses.
Cross of the Dutchman
The story takes place in medieval Western Europe, in the province of Frisia, near the turn of the 16th century. Though Pier and his family lived in peace, the world around them was changing for the worse. Saxon legions were invading nearby villages, making the lives of the native people next to impossible. On one faithful day, Pier got involved with the Saxon oppressors, escalating the situation for the worse. The events portrayed in this great adventure caused Pier to gather a band of farmers and form a front against the oppressors. The acts that followed made Pier into the legend he is known for, the Cross of the Dutchman.
