Glare Beautiful Platformer Officially Released On Steam

By - | Views: 11,549
Glare (Steam) a visually beautiful platformer that we showed you a few times has now been officially released on Steam!

We have been given a promo key so you should see a nice video of it from our Samsai in the not too distant future as well.

Glare is a side-scrolling action platformer with beautifully realized 3D environments. Summoned from starlight to defeat the infectious creatures called the Ramora, you play as the Shiner, a being of pure light given shape by an ancient suit of armor. Equipped with nothing but the power of your Glare and Gauntlet you must progress through fantastic alien worlds, tackling satisfying platforming challenges and engaging in fast-paced combat. Glare is a game about discovery, new powers and challenges await you on every world.
  • Visually stunning 3D environments enhance the 2D platforming experience.
  • Unique Glare ability repels enemies, reflects projectiles and activates Shiner technology.
  • Circular worlds show increasing curvature as you approach each planet’s core.
  • Gain new abilities on each world
  • Dynamic sound system matches music to your game experience seamlessly.

It looks like a very nice game.  But to be honest, I for myself find the news not really too helpful.  There's neither a link to the Product page or older GOL articles about it, nor a link or mentioning that the game is also available outside of steam, e.g., via the Humble Store.  This is GOL, not GOS, is it?

Valid comments, was a bit tired when I wrote it heh, updated.

Lets not forget that the developer posted about this on our forums:

I am sure this game is awesome!

Anyone played it yet? The price is a bit steep for me (being the cheap bastard I am!) unless I know it's a great buy.

Quoting: Quote from HadBabitsAnyone played it yet? The price is a bit steep for me (being the cheap bastard I am!) unless I know it's a great buy.
I have played an hour of it and so far it has been awesome. I usually dislike platformers, but I have enjoyed Trine 2 and this quite a lot and out of the two I'd say this is better. I'll probably release a video of it next week and then you can see it yourself. :)

That's high-praise Samsai. Makes me tempted to buy it, if it were not for the fact I have huge backlog of games I really need to get though first. :|
Pit 14 Oct, 2013
Hamish - just get it. I'm having quite a backlog, too, but nevertheless bought it (via Humblestore).  I don't regret it, not even having payed more than I'd have to pay on steam.  It's just plain beautiful and worth every cent/penny.  
Yes, reminded me of Trine, the look is very similar, but the gameplay is faster/smoother (though this *might* just be my computer which isn't the fastest)
Hamish 14 Oct, 2013
Well, maybe after I am done getting cattle shipped, and after I buy Salvation Prophecy, which has been sitting in my Desura cart for far longer. Although I am still skeptical that it would actually play better than Trine for me.
