Residual, a "new breed" of survival platformer from OrangePixel and revived publisher Apogee Entertainment is set to release in "Q3 2021" and there's a new trailer.
What makes it different? Well there's no traditional combat, and there's no focus on shooting or anything like that at all. It's a survive the elements kind of experience, across worlds generated new each time with their fancy sounding "Nature Engine" (not based on Unity or Unreal).
"When designing Residual, my goal was to offer players something brand new every time they sat down to play," said Pascal Bestebroer of one-man studio OrangePixel. "Every world tells its own story, shaped by your personal journey through it. The experience will always be challenging, but never unfair, and a rich story awaits for those who choose to seek it."
They hope it's going to be accessible to all too with light puzzles that allow for creative, free-form solutions for avoiding confrontation. Choose a male, female, or non-binary protagonist and set forth with the snarky, humorous robot companion—the Personal Disaster Bot (a.k.a. Peedy-B)—as a guide who happens to think it's the star of this galactic story.
Another title that was crowdfunded too, so it's pleasing to see it coming along so nicely.
You can follow it on Steam. Once they give a more solid date other than "Q3 2021" we will let you know.
