Developer Cococucumber has announced that it will be releasing its action-puzzle platformer, Planet of the Eyes on Steam on August 24, 2015.
Planet of the Eyes is an action-puzzle platformer with a retro sci-fi inspired aesthetic and a mystery-driven storyline. At the outset of the game, the player – an exploration robot – starts his search for the source of a pulsing signal on the planet. Along the way, the robot negotiates multiple dangers, solves environment-based puzzles, and uncovers the truth about the Planet of the Eyes through the audiologs of a surviving crew member. The fate of both these survivors and the planet itself will hang in the balance as the player contemplates a destiny that was meant to be unavoidable.
- Handcrafted, 2D side-scrolling levels.
- Physics-based puzzles and platforming challenges.
- Smooth vector art and a rich colour palette, inspired by a retro sci-fi aesthetic.
- A mysterious and dark story with full voice acting.
