A new puzzle platformer from indie company Talawa Games has officially launched today. The title silently found its way onto the marketplace with very little fanfare, but the interesting thing about it is that it looks like a very interesting game.
Considering that Unmechanical wasn't given a lot of media spotlight leading up to its release, it's hard to imagine anyone would be excited to go out and buy a game they've never heard of or haven't heard much about it before today. So a gameplay launch trailer was issued out for the public, featuring a brief, and somewhat mechanical look at the new title.
To be honest, I would have originally guessed that the game was made in Unity, it didn't really seem to feel like an Unreal game, but that's a telling gesture of the artistic integrity of the game designers. Using art assets to give their game a life of its own as opposed to mimicking how a lot of other Unreal Engine games look is a testament to the art team's creative abilities.
I really like the bleak, sort of steam-tech atmosphere and robot designs, it's a commonly used theme for robot protagonist but it works so freaking well. Players control one of those steam-tech robots and venture through the 2.5D universe while aiming to solve more than 30 different puzzles.
The general consensus from gamer is that it's an interesting and fun title, despite lacking a bit of replayability. I haven't played it so I can't say whether or not it's replayable. However, if you want to learn more about the game or pick up a digital copy, feel free to visit the Official Unmechanical Website.
