Hello! That is Alfonso del Cerro from Pentadimensional Video games.
Right this moment I’ll touch upon one of many many experimental options included in our latest recreation Tenebris Pictura. Can a recreation make you flip the controller the other way up? Carry on studying to seek out the reply (spoiler: the reply is sure however some gamers will refuse to do it).
In Tenebris Pictura you play the position of Magnus, a mystical investigator with psychic skills (just like the ultra-corporeal journey, i.e., the power to separate physique and soul) who has to discover an island, searching demons and fixing puzzles, underneath a thriller ambiance within the Victorian period. The sport may be very numerous and boasts all kinds of gameplay mechanics. Certainly one of them will make you (perhaps) flip your controller the other way up.
At one stage, a robust transdimensional entity referred to as Thronaton assaults Magnus and the hero asks his 4 horses for assist. The 4 equine mates may detach their souls from their our bodies, so the ultra-corporeal battle is served: Magnus and his 4 horses versus Thronaton.
The horses are positioned on display from left to proper and also you management them, evading Thronaton’s assaults and hanging again. The primary revolutionary function of the battle is that you need to management the 4 horses all of sudden, with the 4 components of the controller: the primary one with the left stick, the second with the d-pad, the third one with the fitting stick and the fourth and ultimate one with the ABXY entrance buttons. This lets you evade (left or proper) and assault (urgent up) with two, three or as much as 4 horses on the similar time. Sure, you learn that proper. The time period “finger gymnastics” acquires a brand new significance while you notice that you need to launch your controller and place it on a floor to have the ability to transfer 4 characters concurrently.
Regardless of the obvious problem, each participant understands intuitively what he/she has to do, as a result of the disposition of the horses on display is the same as the disposition of the 4 components of the controller that transfer them… At the least, till the second confrontation. In that one, horror!, Thronaton turns the display the other way up and now the 4 horses are reversed with respect to the controller. In the meantime, an on-screen tutorial informs you of the one resolution: turning the controller the other way up. Right here is the place most gamers I’ve seen in playtest periods escape laughing and really feel a combination of rigidity, incredulity and focus as they do what the sport tells them to do. These are probably the most intentionally uncomfortable controls ever made in a console recreation so far as I do know. Different gamers refuse to do it and (with higher problem), they mentally reverse the controls. The sport lets them accomplish that, in fact. It has no approach of telling them aside.
This minigame is barely a small pattern of the various unique mechanics that we’ve launched within the island of Tenebris Pictura in an effort to discover and luxuriate in them, like leaping into work, surviving the spontaneous teleport of the participant, fixing puzzles by way of tearing down the partitions of the room, or chasing movable doorways and home windows within the Mansion of Insanity. And relaxation assured, you may play most of them whereas grabbing the controller correctly. The sport is out now and you may watch the trailer above.
