The first game developed by Recoil Games has been announced, a puzzle platformer called Rochard, which follows the heroic space adventures of astro-miner John Rochard.
The game tests players’ coordination and wits as they use gravity to their advantage, changing it at will to solve environmental puzzles and advance through each level. By using the upgradable G-Lifter, the main tool of the game, players can lift and maneuver heavy objects around the environment, and can eventually swing, jump and propel themselves huge distances throughout each level.
“We have been working on Rochard for some time now and we’re very excited to start showing this clever, funny, unique adventure title to PlayStation Network gamers,” said Burt Kane, Creative Director at Recoil Games Ltd. “The hero, John Rochard, is no marine or super soldier, but just a tough, ordinary miner with a mustache, placed in an extraordinary situation. The combination of its humorous style, explorative space antics and the player’s ability to manipulate gravity will really make Rochard stand out.”
The game will be released this coming Spring for PlayStation Network.
