Square Enix has revealed that Octahedron, a rhythmic action platformer developed by Demimonde Studios, is to release next month.
Octehedron is described as “a precision vertical action game about creating your own platforms.” “Ascend and escape strange subterranean world Veetragoul, and experience an otherworldly psychedelic adventure. To conquer and master each of the handcrafted levels, you must get into the flow of the pumping, atmospheric soundtrack, as enemies and traps move along with the rhythm.” It was first revealed in September 2017 but it has now been confirmed to be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 20.
The platforming is fast and frenetic, and the flashing neon lights and exploding platforms look stunning at 60fps. The pulsating soundtrack, which is vital to the gameplay, is put together by “chip queen extraordinaire Chipzel, House and Trance producers Andre Sobota and Derek Howell, and Monomirror (of classic trance acts like Flutlicht).” For more on the game and to see the trailer, check out the Octahedron website.
