Deck13 and Cordens interactive have announced a new puzzle platformer that will be coming to the PC in 2021, Vesper. In order to celebrate this announcement, the teams have also released the game’s debut trailer that you can find below.
Vesper is a new inspired take on classic-cult 90’s atmospheric platformers, with an emphasis on stealth and modern puzzle mechanics. Players will assume the role of Seven; a small android, lost in an eerie planet full of perils and traces of an ancient civilization. Seven will not be able to defeat his enemies until he finds the Drive Gun; a weapon used to absorb lights, create darkness, and control minds.
As the press release reads, players will have to take decisions in the blink of an eye. Players will also have to hide from their pursuers and sneak through enemy lines to reach their objective.
Players can use the Drive Gun to absorb light from sources and create dark spots in which they can hide. Additionally, they can inject absorbed light into machineries, to open portals and activate deadly traps.
It’s also worth noting that players will be able to control their opponents with light and dispose of them after exploiting their abilities.
