Team17 has revealed a partnership with Malaysian developer One More Dream Studios to release puzzle-platformer Ageless on Nintendo Switch.
The game has you playing as Kiara, a young woman who discovers a mystical bow armed with the ancient power to control ageing. You'll need to shoot animals and plants to age them, both backwards and forwards in time, to progress through a series of vibrant puzzles.
A press release for the game notes that "Kiara’s new-found power is not without consequence; the narrative follows the journey she must make to confront her inner demons and find herself along the way". We also have a feature list for you, so feel free to check that out below:
Features of Ageless:
- Multi-stage ageing for plants and animals: Age flora and fauna through various stages of their life cycle to solve the puzzles standing in your way.
- Platforming: Ageless uses the environment to produce intricate platforming challenges. While ‘ageless’ players can use living creatures to dash through the air, consuming the life force and de-ageing the plant or animal in the process
- Unique worlds: Each area has its own unique plants and animals to utilise, realised in a hand-drawn pixel art.
- Collectables: Becoming ‘ageless’ allows players to see and collect optional hidden items that will only be accessible via intricate platforming challenges hidden throughout the levels.
We don't have any news on a release window for this one just yet, but the game will be playable at the Team17 booth at PAX East this weekend.
