In making their announcement, they have also unveiled a flashy new game trailer.
Unmechanical combines tricky puzzle solving, exploration, and an engrossing atmosphere. The game originally began as a student project and since then both the game and team behind it has grown.
Says Marko Permanto, project lead for the Unmechanical team:
Unmechanical has been about taking on something for real and working our fingers to the bone to get it done. It’s our hopes and ambitions combined into this very personal, unique, and awesome adventure that’s crafted with lots of love.
The game begins as you’re spirited away by a network of coiled pipes into a mysterious underworld. From there, you begin your journey to freedom by getting past a variety of puzzle challenges, which are either mechanical or organic in their design.
As Unmechanical’s creators cryptically suggest:
On your adventure you might also begin to understand what it all means–The underworld may be more than it seems, the fateful descent more than just chance, and you might not be entirely alone after all …
Talawa Games is made up of students that work across multiple studios in Europe. Teotl Studios, meanwhile, is made up of industry veterans who started up their own indie studio and released The Ball in 2010. They have since worked with Valve on the Potato Sack, as well as with Epic Games on the Unreal University training sessions.
The game arrives for PC on August 8 and for iOS a few weeks later.
