Linelight Gets January 31st Release Date For Steam and PlayStation 4
The stunning and award winning puzzle game Linelight, developed by My Dog Zorro, will be available on Steam and PS4 on January 31st!
Linelight is set in a world made of lines. It offers six worlds to players, with a total of 300 levels. Check out the trailer below – I really like the minimalistic approach:
Here’s the official synopsis:
Take control of one very special line named “Dash” … and explore the puzzles and mysteries of Linelight. The controls are irreducibly simple:
Activate color-coded switches to create a “bridge.” Watch out for red moving lines — friendly in appearance, deadly on contact. Combine familiar gameplay mechanics to come up with one-of-a-kind solutions for exultant “Aha!” moments.
Linelight’s simple presentation belies a world of rich complexities and secrets. Keep an eye out for stars — and concentrate to discover secret pathways that expand the scope of your journey. Can you stay cool, keep Dash safe, and follow the path to its ultimate end?
The key features of Linelight include:
* Basking in the soft glow of a world made out of straight lines.
* Experiencing 6 hours of pure, unadulterated gameplay.
