BoxBoy! series - Switch demo out now!

This one got a bit lost amidst all the Nintendo Direct news from last week...

 

 

 

 

 

A black and white puzzle platformer, with a simple but bold presentation and with a very strong core mechanic: you create boxes in different directions from your, well... box-shaped-hero (Hakoboi actually means litt. ''Box Boy''), to interact with the world and solve puzzles. And you jump. And that's it.

 

 

 

 

 

It looks so simple at first, and it's the classic game that's difficult to explain by words as is easy to grasps while watching the trailer or, better, playing it.

 

 

By the end of the video this core mechanic gets applied in some astounding ways, opening up an inordinate amount of possibilities, driven by clever game and level design. As per Hal's trademark development skills.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Euro release is a big unknown at the moment.

Really ploughing through this. Onto world 14 already!

How many are there overall? I thought it was 200 levels but that would mean I'm half way already and judging from what happens in the game it feels like I'm only about 30% done.
