Press Play today announced that their upcoming platforming game will be named Kalimba, and is scheduled for digital release on Xbox One on Wednesday December 17th.
Kalimba takes place on multiple levels across three different worlds, and features a unique trixelated art style.This original style gives each puzzle, enemy, and totem a distinctive look and feel.
As players move through the game they build a totem pole piece by piece. The carvings and decorations on each piece reflect how well players have done on each level, creating a visual representation of the leaderboard.
Aside from the single player mode, the game offers an old school couch co-op mode, where each player controls 2 characters. “It’s kind of a friendship tester – if you can do this and high five more than you slap each other, you’re probably ready to get married” Asger Strandby explained.
Kalimba will be available worldwide from December 17th on Xbox One for $9.99. A PC version will launch in January 2015.
