Here’s another 2 person operation currently working on some neat indie titles. Jana Reinhardt and Friedrich Hanisch make up Rat King Entertainment, who are currently working on a trippy title simply called TRI.
This game inspired by the likes of Thief and Portal offers first person puzzles in an open setting. Players control triangles, which they can form to their liking to create a path of their choosing. The goal in TRI Is to become a successful tomb raider and overcome obstacles, by manipulating as much as the problem as possible. Your triangles affect space itself as they allow you to change gravitational settings and let you walk on walls and ceilings. It’s also possible to reflect light and lasers in order to solve puzzles. By performing these feats, you’ll be able to reap the riches of the dungeons.
The developer has launched a pre-alpha version right now that allows you to experience the basics of TRI firsthand. It’s also possible to pre-purchase the full release set for the end of the year for a 50% discount. Otherwise, a demo will have to suffice. You’ll find it here.
Rat King Entertainment is part of the Indie Buskers campaign, which we reported on earlier. That effort spawned the crazy Super Office Stress game that turns the everyday work hassle into a roguelike. We like these guys; they’re different. Difference is good.
