Recently I’ve found myself more interested in games that emulate the classic feel of classic platformers and arcade styled games. Which is why when I notice games like the upcoming adventure-platformer, Embers of Mirrim I get excited.
The game is scheduled to be shown at this year’s GDC, and so the developer released a new trailer to show some of the gameplay we can expect from it. The new trailer focuses on in-game action, with the lead character, Mirrim, dashing, diving, dividing and merging its way through various puzzles and battles as it fights to save its world from an invasion.
Designed with a variety of gameplay – including classic platforming, puzzle-solving, formidable boss battles and thrilling chases – Embers of Mirrim ascends beyond the standard platformer with precise controls, unique mechanics, and rich environments.
- A Stylish Character with Twice the Personality: Mirrim has the ability to split into two playable forms, called Embers. The Light and Dark embers are independently controlled by the left and right control sticks and offer new ways to solve puzzles, overcome obstacles and traverse through the world.
- Diverse Gameplay: Master innovative thumbstick controls mixed with classic platforming, alter your world to solve intriguing puzzles, battle with gigantic bosses and run for your life from dangerous threats. Infusing these moments with “splitting” gameplay and a powerful narrative offers more than the sum of its parts.
- Save Your World From the Corruption: Use your powers to rid the world of the corruption that is infecting your beloved planet. Save your friends and unify their forces to restore balance to the world.
- Explore the Extraordinary World: A vibrant and colorful universe awaits! Mirrim’s journey will take you from a thawing mountain to an aging forest to a desolate wasteland and more. A variety of hidden secrets are scattered throughout the stunningly rendered environments for you to discover.
Embers of Mirrim is set to be released at some point during 2017 for Steam, Xbox One, and the PlayStation 4.
