If there's anything Ian Higton loves more than Robert Frost poetry, it's puzzle games about rescuing children. Imagine his delight when he heard tell of Road Not Taken, a game that combines both his passions into one playful nugget of ornery spite!
Sony has unveiled August's selection of free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers, which includes acclaimed platformer Fez for PlayStation 4.
Roguelike puzzler Road Not Taken launches on PlayStation 4 on 6th August 2014, developer Spry Fox has announced.
A Vita version launches later this autumn, Spry Fox boss David Edery wrote on the PlayStation blog.
In Road Not Taken you play a magical ranger who must save lost children in a forest comprised of a series of single-screen puzzles.
Triple Town developer Spry Fox has explained how its upcoming roguelike puzzler Road Not Taken will work.
"What might a roguelike look like if it featured a thinker and explorer instead of a traditional warrior? If being clever was more important than being strong? That's a design challenge we've attempted to tackle with Road Not Taken," wrote Spry Fox's chief creative officer Daniel Cook on the PlayStation Blog.
Assuming the role of a magical ranger, you'll need to save lost children in a forest comprised of a series of single-screen puzzles. Each screen's exit is blocked and you'll have to sort out what to do to unlock it. Given that you're a magic wizard, you can levitate any object and toss it around. The kicker is that every action you take depletes your stamina, and when that's all gone it's game over. No restarts. No continues.
