Puzzle adventure game Ever Forward will launch for PC via Steam on August 13 for $14.99, followed by PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch this winter, developer Pathea Games announced. A demo is available now.
Here is an overview of the game, via Pathea Games:
Ever Forward is the story of a young girl, Maya, caught between realities. One is filled with idyllic fields and coastal retreats. The other is a harsh, geometric dream world of traps and puzzles. The player will help guide Maya through these places on a journey of self-discovery and reflection. Together, they will unlock Maya’s memories and find the secrets that lie dormant in her mind.
- Puzzles – For more than three years, our designers racked their brains, designing puzzles with the “puzzle gamer” in mind. Players will feel deeply challenged and motivated to solve each puzzle, and some puzzles even have multiple solutions, catered to different kinds of thinkers and logical processes.
- Art – A color pallet of soothing pastels and futuristic tones designed to simulate the absurd nature of the dream world.
- Adventure – Players can collect fragments of memories in the world to unlock new areas and new puzzles.
- Mechanics – Mechanics range from simple movement and jump to teleportation and gravity control; the player must use stealth and observational skills to navigate each puzzle.
