Hiya there! My identify is Javier Gerona and I’m one of many builders of Inverge Studios, a small indie sport studio from Spain. At present I come to the PlayStation.Weblog to speak about our newest online game Effie, a 3D action-adventure platformer sport coming to PS4 June four.
All of us have fond reminiscences of these basic 3D platformer PlayStation video games. So from the start we had a transparent aim: we wished to make a basic PlayStation online game, with modernized graphics, telling a brand new story.
On this fantasy story, you play as Galand, a younger man who has been cursed by a depraved witch with untimely previous age. Galand units out on a quest to get better his youth, however he gained’t be travelling alone — he’ll have the assistance of a robust magic protect, which will likely be his weapon, software, and even his technique of transport!
The journey takes place within the Pink Plains of Oblena, a distant land acknowledged for its distinctive pink vegetation. On this huge world you’ll have the ability to go to distinctive places together with a windmill metropolis, historical temples, or perhaps a metropolis devoted to grape juice manufacturing with enormous barrel buildings! These aren’t belongings you see on daily basis…
Though Effie is a 3D platformer, it’s not 100% linear. When you arrive within the open world, you’ll be able to go to any of the settlements freely, however the gameplay turns into linear once you enter one. This brought about multiple headache to design, however it’s your journey, and we wished you to determine the place your subsequent cease could be.
On this story, the world has been invaded by ghouls. A few of them are small and humorous, however others… you gained’t wish to come close to them! And sure, all of them can assault you. So in your quest to get better your youth, you can be accompanied by a magic protect.
In the course of the journey, you’ll have the ability to strengthen your protect and provides it new abilities. Ultimately, you’ll have the ability to use it to do gentle and heavy assault combos, charged assaults, dashes, double jumps… as you’ll be able to see, it’s able to many issues! However simply since you personal a magic protect, don’t assume that the whole lot will likely be simpler.
If there’s one talent that’s particularly enjoyable, it’s browsing on the protect. One of many drawbacks of getting such an enormous world is needing a technique to traverse it rapidly. And we thought, it will be cool to have the ability to surf on a hover protect, wouldn’t it? The management of the character and the sense of velocity when passing by way of a turbo are so satisfying, you’ll be able to play for a very long time doing nothing greater than browsing throughout the in depth pink grassland.
However I gained’t inform you the whole lot concerning the sport; I’d favor so that you can uncover and revel in it your self. When you have any questions on Effie, you’ll be able to write us within the feedback beneath and we will likely be comfortable to reply.
Prepare adventurers! Effie, a brand new PlayStation-exclusive 3D platformer journey, will arrive at PlayStation Retailer on June four.
