We will soon be able to add another physics-based puzzle title to the list of them, as we have the announcement of Relicta here from Mighty Polygon. Maybe, soon is a little too early to say as all we have is the announcement here and that it is coming to the PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia. All of the usual suspects right now and with a listed year release of 2020. That leaves a whole lot of time that Relicta could hit us all, but at the very least we have a more recent year instead of something into next year. That would be a rough wait for some of us who truly love these kinds of games.
What you will be able to see below for Relicta is gameplay that mirrors a few others in the genre but set in a different future of sorts. We will get to use magnetism, polarity, and gravity to move ourselves around as well as the typical blocks we all know from these kinds of games. That is not to say that Relicta is just a clone, but it holds some of the same mechanics we have loved, just with new puzzles for them all. These are my guilty pleasure titles, for sure, but I know I cannot wait to get my hands on this one to try to make it through the 22nd century.
Relicta — Announcement Trailer
Mighty Polygon and Koch Media are happy to announce that Relicta, the physics-based puzzle game taking players to the moon, will be coming digitally to Google Stadia, PlayStation 4, Microsoft Xbox One and PC in 2020.
The debut trailer will give you the first glimpse of your journey to the enigmatic, derelict Chandra Base. You’ll need to hone your scientific skills to save a life and navigate 22nd century orbital politics on your own. But are you really the only entity traversing the lunar craters?
Relicta is a first-person physics-based puzzle game. Played through the eyes of a scientist, you’ll need to use your creativity to play with the laws of physics, utilizing magnetism, polarity, and gravity to unravel the secrets of a research facility on the moon. Chandra Base will test your scientific skills, as they are the only thing that can keep your daughter alive…
In Relicta each corner tells a story, each new step is a challenge. Find your way around the enigmatic, terraformed craters and investigate different locations and ecosystems. Will you rush straight ahead and try to reach safety? Or will you take your time to gather clues and unravel the intrigues of 22nd century orbital politics? Buried in the eternal darkness of the lunar craters lies a secret that might claim your daughter’s life — or change the fate of humanity forever. Are you ready to face the ultimate consequences of your research?
What are your thoughts on Relicta based on what we have to look at here? When in the year do you think it will come out for us or could it be pushed to a new year? Are these your guilty pleasure titles too or will it be the first time you are going to give it a go? Let us all know down in the comments and then feel free to discuss. If there is more for Relicta, we will add it all to the site for you. Be sure to keep checking in here for that and much more.
