OSK from the single-person studio Diax Game is officially out and it has a really beautiful style to it.
In OSK the world is dying, some sort of cataclysmic event is happening below and as a squirrel you're just doing what you know—climbing. To get away from the absolute chaos, the game has you climb an enormous tree while you also solve puzzles and avoid enemies.
As they developed confirmed when asked earlier this month, it has now launch with Linux support. Nice to see a platformer that's a little different, with it being a vertical climb rather than a side-scroller. Looks like it can get pretty crazy, avoiding enemies with volcanoes exploding away in the background, some fun scenery there.
You can find OSK on Steam where it's 15% off until September 27.
Quoting: TcheyI tested it, and i feel it's bad. Visual and musics are excellent, but gameplay is wasted. Controls are bad, squirrel does not behave like you may expect from a squirrel. Weird to write, but that's my main feeling... Also, didn't do it myself, but it seems the game is extra short, like 2 hours long, and you cannot save. The game literally tells you at the beginning you can't save because the game is pretty short. Also, no key rebinding, and my xBoxOne USB didn't work.Wow, that's a real shame as it looks visually so pretty.
Also, I have trouble with the whole idea of a squirrel having problems getting up or around in a tree at all since they can run up and down a trunk better than they can run along the ground. Its a game, of course, but it's a game whose premise seems more preposterous than Frogger.
Still, nice to see that they brought it to Linux! XD
