Description

OOSOOM is a puzzle platformer in which you can close your eyes and cover your ears to make elements in the world, from boulders to entire chunks of earth, disappear. The dream world is being blended by nightmares, though, so you'll face blocks that won't be budged by your perception gifts. It's being developed for Windows and Mac at the moment, and we're looking into other platforms like mobile. The key to OOSOOM is logical thinking. The puzzles are designed in such a way that it always makes sense in the game world, and that even players who aren't familiar with the puzzle genre can play the game. For those who like to go a step further, there's an extra goal for each level that gives it just that extra challenge!

History

This game was created during the Global Game Jam 2014 in Leeuwarden, where it was awarded the first prize by the jury. Because of that it was also nominated for the Kleine Uil, the Dutch prize for best GGJ game of the year, and made it to the last five. Now it's been in active development for a couple of months and we're busy replacing graphical assets and creating lots of new levels for the game.

Features

  • Control the environment by closing your eyes and covering your ears
  • Avoid Nightmare, which you cannot influence, or use it to your advantage
  • Three worlds, each with their own obstacles and visual style
  • A story about a child unfolding in between the levels
  • A dreamy, peaceful soundtrack that gives you room to think
