Posted , 22 December 2013 at 3:29 pm UTC / 7199 views
Secrets of Rætikon is an atmospheric, open-world, 2D exploration game set in the romantic wilderness of the Alps. Fly through savage mountains, encounter wild animal tribes and discover the secrets of an ancient culture. As a member of the mysterious bird people you become the pivot in the enduring struggle between nature and civilization.

Trailer

I must say I love the style of this with all the triangles!

Alpha Features
  • Single player campaign
  • A living, breathing world populated by all kinds of animals
  • An emergent ecosystem influenced by your actions
  • Fully interactive physical world
  • An epic story told in Raetic runes
  • Huge animal kings and ancient contraptions
  • Play creatively and solve puzzles the way you want
  • The full game is editable via the built-in level editor

To Come
  • More animals, more challenges, more dangers
  • The hidden cave of the gods
  • Achievements and Stats
  • Easily share your self-designed levels via Steam Workshop
  • A mind-blowing ending that is the secret of Rætikon

They plan to launch on Steam on the 7th of January as well. May have to pick this one up myself as it looks like nothing else i've seen, long live fun-looking indie games that aren't re-hashes!

It's $10 using the Humble Store widget right now, I think it's a bloody bargain.

Yeah, this looks pretty sweet - and we covered it as a Hidden Gem in TFC #23 too. It got an absurdly high income for a flexible funding game - over $14k of its $20k target. Great to see it go from strength to strength!

So do you actually get the game via the humblestore, or just a steam key so you can access it on Jan 7 via Steam?

I've got the exact same doubt. Their website doesn't say anything about it...

EDIT: I've checked their site again and I've now realized there's an image promoting both Steam and DRM-free versions, so it is to be expected to get a DRM-free download when buying the game through the Humble widget.

Thanks for the hint - I must have overlooked this.  So I did give it a try and baought it.  Indeed, you get a zip with the alpha version, and a promise for the (final) DRM-free version.  The steam key is additional.  Thumbs up for this.
