As video game journalists, we see a lot of indie games. And when I say a lot, I mean a lot. It’s very easy to become blasé about seeing yet another 2D platformer with a “story to tell”. Unfortunately, this means that for an indie title to grab our attention it has to do something more. Well, one title that may achieve this is Weakless from Polish developers Punk Notion. This is a gorgeous looking 3D puzzle adventure game. You play as two wooden creatures. The twist is that one is deaf and the other is blind.
Well, if this sounds like your kind of thing then we have a new release date for you. Yes, you did read that right, this is a new release date. The game was actually scheduled to launch in November however the game got delayed and will now be coming out on Xbox One on 13th December. You can check out a gorgeous trailer for the game (that touts the original release date) below along with the official description –
Weakless is an artistic, 3D puzzle-adventure game with stunning organic environments filled with curious life-forms and a bioluminescent glow.
Take control of two unusual Weavelings – carefree, wooden creatures – and aid them in their unplanned journey. But the task won’t be easy: one of your characters is deaf, and the other is blind. Help them save their world from the advancing Rot and find their way back home.
Follow the story of an unlikely friendship that develops wordlessly between the stoic Blind and the energetic Deaf.
