GAME SPOTLIGHT: Wanderer


Wanderer is a 2D, lo-res Sci-fi cinematic platformer/adventure game that tells the tale of a man called Rook, a greying convict who wakes from cold sleep aboard a massive orbital prison facility to find that it’s crash landed on the ruins of an abandoned Earth. With the guidance of a hacker named Jin and the aid of a ragtag group of survivors he recruits along the way, Rook must locate and explore the nine cell blocks which have detached from the prison’s central tower and scattered across Earth’s ghostly wasteland.

Along his mission, Rook will run into allies and adversaries in the form of dangerous fellow prisoners and bizarre parasitic extradimensional beasts that haunt the dead planet. Core gameplay fuses platforming, pseudo-turn based combat, puzzle solving, and interactive dialogue/decision making into a story driven, atmospheric experience. Tying it all together is a unique visual aesthetic that merges lo-res pixel art characters with a lovingly hand-painted world.
