If you are looking for a game that can both relax and move you, Legacy Studio has found the answer for you. Its new work brings you into the depths of the sea walking in the shoes tentacles of a brave little OCTOPUS. Thanks to the neat pixel art graphics, as soon as you launch Octopus you find yourself immersed in blue waters, populated with seaweeds, fishes but also... plastic! Your task is to solve logic puzzles to clean up the polluted water and save your friends. In his previous work, Sunset Opacity, we had already the chance to appreciate Vincenzo Striano's ability to create an atmospheric game with a simple plot but capable of arousing alternately uneasiness and profound serenity, so that your mind is lightened from everyday issues for a few minutes while your brain keeps on training.
In Octopus we can find all these qualities, but also new ones: improved physics and graphics, more levels and more dynamics, and a plot full of adventure and characters. The game is currently under development and includes 3 levels of increasing difficulty, which allow the player to gradually lower himself into the logic of the game. Vincenzo Striano revealed to me that he plans to hide secrets in each level, so that they can not only be played more than once but that the resolution of each level affects the actions you can take on the others. Therefore new enemies, friends, secret bonuses… we’re going to have a great time!
But the strongest quality of the game is probably Octopus itself, a character so sweet and authentic that immediately enters your heart with its clumsiness and optimism.
Octopus and its friends make you feel that you too, no matter how little you could be, can have a positive effect on the world with small gestures. And this is the meaning of games after all, isn’t this? To give us useful instruments to get our real life better! No coincidence that Vincenzo Striano plans to, slowly, let Octopus out of the pixel world and make it live even in reality. He wish to set up a community of fans who want both have fun together through games and collaborate with associations to take part, for example, in beach clean up events!
Good luck to Legacy Studio and its little, brave project!
