Narcissus: hand-crafted platform gaming for two

These days, it is getting quite hard to find a platformer that successfully demarcates itself from the rest! New games are being added daily, and the App Store appears to be pretty saturated. However, there might be hope for players who really need some entertainment on the go! Narcissus is on the way and it seems to hold features that will finally take things to the next level.

The game is a hand-crafted project coming from an indie developer in the name of Alex Johansson and it does seem that the latter has managed to spot the details that were missing. The title will actually offer players the choice to play solo or with a friend. However, this will have nothing to do with multiplayer gaming! Instead, it will be all about co-operative platform-running!

Folks will be seen facing each other as they control their individual characters on each side of the device being used. As mentioned above, those with the skills to multitask will get to guide the two heroes on their own. A speed challenge awaits and things are likely to get trickier as one progresses. According to Johansson, this title will be one that rewards social interaction!

In the wait for the ninth of February, you can consult this blog or the game’s official website for more details. Also note that the App Store will be the only targeted market for now. An Android version is being developed and its launch will be announced later. Do not miss Narcissus’s trailer for a glimpse of thrills that are on the way!
