Uncanny Games are releasing their new PC puzzle platformer, OIO the game, through various digital distribution portals tomorrow, Friday September 23rd.
Drawing inspiration from the mythologies of Icarus and timeless fairytales, OIO is the story of a little wooden man, awakened when a stray beam of sunlight pierces the twilight subterranean world in which he and his hand-carved compatriots stand frozen in time. Alone in being reanimated, OIO embarks on a perilous journey through the vast organic netherworld with only his wits and magical seeds to overcome the challenges before him and climb towards the light. As the journey unfolds, OIO will learn of the fate that befell his petrified companions, seek a way to free them from their inanimate tyranny, and come face to face with his greatest challenge.
OIO is a scrolling platform puzzler, with simple yet intricate gameplay elements that draw the player into their quest to collect 100 orbs and 3 fragments on each level, and ultimately put the pieces of the story together to unravel the mystery. The player will guide OIO through 12 scrolling levels in the twilight domain, using the seeds he acquires to grow and combine wooden beams to solve increasingly elaborate physical puzzles.
Jump over obstacles, climb, and master the propagation of fire in the wooden world, reaching ever higher through four different environments, including roots and natural wood, mines, and eventually a realm of metallic machinery.
OIO the game will be available to download for PC & Mac through Gamersgate and PC only through Impulse Driven and Desura for £6.50. Head over to the offical site for more info.
