Here we go with another fun adventure looking title with Woven getting a November 15th release date for the PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. A fun little game that Alterego Games put out there on Kickstarter and is now dropping on us from StickyLock to give us a softer story in the mix of all the darker ones out there. Pun totally intended. It is always nice to get a break like this and, also a new bit of gameplay to take in for Woven to give us a better look and feel for how the game will play and flow. Something I am sure that many out there will want to see before dropping the $19.99 USD on it before and after the launch in the next few weeks.
You can see it all in motion below, but it does look like Woven will play in the similar forms of LittleBigPlanet out there with a few key differences. One being that it will not be a specific building game out there in the background of it all. The other being that we will be playing the role of Glitch, a robotic firefly that seems to be controlling everything more than Stuffy the elephant. Well, elephant for now as Woven does allow you to alter the look and build of the character. More than just cosmetic as different forms will open up different mechanics and motions we can take in the game. Kind of like having Sackboy and all the other variations all wrapped up in one. As long as you hunt down all of the alterations and choose to weave things that way. Have a look at the gameplay just below and see if you will be taking this break.
Woven — Gameplay Trailer
Indie developer, Alterego Games, and publisher, StickyLock, have today announced that their exciting new title, Woven, coming to Sony PlayStation 4, Microsoft Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC platforms on November 15th, will be priced at $19.99 USD across all platforms at launch.
In Woven, players assume the role of Glitch, a metal robotic Firefly and on your travels, you encounter an elephant called Stuffy and together explore a seemingly safe knitted world where stuffed animals live. Customize Stuffy by changing his body parts, which can help in solving puzzles. Together confront the metal mechanical menace that lurks below the world's soft and fluffy exterior and unravel the mystery of Glitch’s origin and discover things both amazing and terrifying, that binds the fate of the unlikely duo.
Finding and combining the right blueprints is a major part of gameplay in Woven. Players will face lots of obstacles in Woven which can only be solved through customizing Stuffys limbs. Find blueprints of different animal types, scan them, and reknit Stuffy so that he may overcome hurdles and challenges. The possibilities are endless; after all — elephant legs may be strong, but rabbit legs would allow you to jump!
How are you feeling about Woven based on what we have here and what has been shown already? Do you like the look and feel of it all or is it too close to another game that you will not be able to break from that mindset? How many different variations do you think we will see in the full game or will it only be a few different ones as we see in the gameplay here? Let us all know down in the comments what you are thinking and then feel free to discuss away. If there is more to share for Woven, we will add it to the site for you. Just be sure to keep coming back to see all of that and much more.
