2D Platformer-Without-Platforms Takes Players on a Journey through a Mind-Bending Apocalyptic Wasteland
SANTA MONICA, Calif. – April 16, 2014 – OUYA and Team Tripleslash today announced that Magnetic By Nature, a fast-paced adventure platforming game that gives players power over magnetism to traverse a machine-age landscape, is coming exclusively to OUYA first. The game is a total redesign of Magnetic By Nature: Awakening, a proof-of-concept demo for Xbox Live Arcade launched in 2013, and will be available on OUYA in early May.
Magnetic By Nature explores platforming without platforms, putting players in the role of the last remaining robot exploring the ruins of an advanced civilization. Using the power of magnetic attraction and repulsion, players must manipulate magnets – and themselves – through wickedly difficult puzzles. Success relies on carefully balancing pushing and pulling on the level itself – go too far in one direction, and you’ll meet a nasty end. With a striking art-deco style, atmospheric sound design, and more than 100 levels of magnetic mayhem to navigate, Magnetic By Nature is an engrossing single-player experience that platformer fans will love.
