Climbing can be a tricky affair or an absolute breeze. Perhaps the odd exception where the challenge lies somewhere in the middle also exists, but how difficult is it when you’re entirely in control of designing the vessel used to reach ever greater heights? Ocnus Theory might have the answer.
Everything from various blocks to fruits, fish, and whatever will stick to your core is ripe for the taking, on your quest to construct the ultimate climbing machine. And then you get to do it all over again upon reaching a challenge unsuited for your current build. That last part might sound like a bad thing, but I highly doubt it actually is, so much as a way to ensure players don’t simply scale the tallest tower with whatever they’re cruising as from the get-go. Variety is the spice of life, and it’s most certainly also something you need to keep the art of climbing new and exciting.
Though the climb ahead may be daunting, with a little creativity and patience no task is impossible.
As for why the protagonist in Ocnus Theory is climbing, I’m not entirely sure, although based on the trailer below, odds are a light – even if only dim – will be shining on that mystery at some point over the course of the journey. One which, thankfully, has checkpoints sprinkled throughout the ascend. Unless you’re the type of player who laughs in the face of even the greatest obstacles, in which case, you may want to head off in the direction of Legendary Mode – who needs checkpoints, after all? So what if everything can and likely will come crashing down at a moment’s notice, caused by you taking a second too long to make that next move? Actually, starting out with the goal of becoming a legend with no prior experience might be a terrible idea. But who dares wins, right?
Ocnus Theory is available on Steam, with a $11.99 price tag.
