It’s been a good day for early looks at indie games that have been a bit off the radar, and next is Mutatione, the adventure game from Nils ‘Die Gute Fabrik‘ Deneken, whose original concept image (embedded again below) surprisingly but rightly received a lot of positive attention on its first posting.
While there’s still not much more to glean from the image above, Deneken leaves the following comments on the game, and is very much precisely speaking my language with its outside inspirations, and introduces its new heroine:
The game mechanics remind me a lot of the 2D Prince of Persia, Flashback or the polygon classic Another World. I just love those games. Anyways, for Mutatione we try to have a stronger focus on the story and the mood of the game, especially when it comes to sound and music.
The team, now six-strong and already plugging away for the past two months, is looking for more funding for future development — Deneken will only say that much of the “development speed of the game” rests solely on that, and that he “hopes to work on Mutatione a lot more…”
