Spate is a very unusual looking platformer with a full-story about the death of your daughter and your battle with alcoholism. It has some of the most fantastic looking back-drops i've ever seen for a platformer.

At anytime in the game you can get your character to take a sip of the "naughty water" (absinthe), side effects may occur when this happens.

I keep taking back my previous words about platformers recently after Escape Goat 2 being fantastic and now this game too, just wow.
