Technology Preview (Alpha) available now.
Story of Namiad
Namiad lives in a garden in a purely two-dimensional universe, he can move east, west, up and down. There is no way to pass by something since there is no "there" there, he must go over or under it. When his homeland is destroyed by three lords who invaded from the sky, he needs your guidance to survive and to find his destiny. This computer program has established a control link to this creature's nervous system via radio waves that vibrate between our universe and his. Use the keyboard arrow keys and three action buttons Z, X, and C to guide him.
Technology Preview and Preorder (Alpha Stage)
This game technology preview is the product of many years of research, investment, and development. While its far from complete, its already very playable. We hope you enjoy it and we appreciate your support and feedback.
Kontrol is the first video game we know of which makes use of 100% physical modelling of individual body parts for all creature propulsion and balancing, and on uneven ground. This is "ragdoll physics" taken to the next level. To achieve this level of realism and natural-looking motion, we've had to develop our own animation system. The creatures are walking by the simulated action of his feet to the ground, unlike characters in nearly all other games which merely pantomime using their limbs for locomotion.
- Guaranteed different experience every session.
- Self-stabilizing and leveling Legs. You may need to time his steps carefully in some spots, but the creature does pretty well balancing on its own.
- Encounter Artificial Intelligence-driven enemies. Choose to fight them toe-to-toe, trick them, or try and trip them up with something.
- Discover new moves and combinations using your hands and legs. Raise your front arm to alter the gait, grab and eat food, throw objects, control devices and vehicles, have adventures.
Since it is also a 2d universe simulation, with earth, wind, fire, and water (coming soon), things can go wild, and replays are always different. We are continually expanding this world using our custom tools.
