Kasedo Games and Random Layer have announced Upwards, Lonely Robot – a Puzzle Platformer with a heart-wrenching sci-fi storyline told through short messages left by your scientist creator as he attempts to rectify an experiment gone horribly wrong.
In Upwards, Lonely Robot, you are the eponymous android tasked with ascending a series of towers in the search for your creators. Each tower climbed unlocks a little more behind the mystery – with plenty of finger-twisting jumps and vicious enemies to overcome along the way. Not only that, but players must complete each level with an increasingly-challenging countdown timer putting them under even more pressure.
Simple to play but difficult to master, Upwards, Lonely Robot combines addictive ‘one more go’ gameplay with quirky and endearing art direction and an intriguingly cryptic story to bring you a gaming experience unlike any other.
