"Ratchet & Clank meets Zelda meets Uncharted"
Norwegian developer Rock Pocket Games is working on a new project called Oliver and Spike: Dimension Jumpers, and it intends to bring it to Wii U as well as PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
The colourful 3D exploration puzzler features a world full of dimensions, and the happenings in each one influences what goes on in the others.
Oliver and Spike: Dimension Jumpers follows a young boy called Oliver and his faithful doggy pal Spike. You must travel through dimensions uncovering Oliver's past and looking into his future as you go. Each world has at least three dimensions that run alongside each other; these separate worlds all have their own storyline, characters, settings and physical laws for you to get your head around.
The developer describes the game as "Ratchet & Clank meets Zelda meets Uncharted wrapped in a mix between adventure and platformer with a twist". Sounds interesting if you ask us.
Rock Pocket Games has had a fair amount of experience making games for mobile devices. This new project is its biggest yet and we're looking forward to finding out just how expansive it'll be.
There's no confirmation whether or not Oliver and Spike: Dimension Jumpers will be available in the Wii U eShop or if it will be a fully-fledged retail game, though based on the developer's heritage it's probably likely that it will be heading to the eShop.
