Quirky indie platformer Stick to the Man has been confirmed for launch on Wii U this spring.
To look at Zoink Games' Stick It to the Man is to see yet another quirky indie platformer, dominated by distinct art direction but likely lacking the substance that has seen the genre benchmark set so high. Like the game's open-mouthed hero Ray, though, there's a lot more to Stick It To The Man than it seems. You just have to dig a little deeper...
You see, despite looking like a platform game, Stick It to the Man is actually a witty, introspective and superbly-written take on the point-and-click adventure, spruced up and streamlined for modernity, but without ever losing the soul of Schaffer. And yes, it is sort of a platformer as well. Much like Ray again, it's a bit mixed up.
Our hero has a fairly boring life as a hard-hat tester in a local factory, until one day he's smashed in the skull by some sort of foreign object that falls mysteriously from the sky. After a dirt nap, Ray wakes up in the hospital with a crushing headache, bandages on his cranium, and a giant pink spaghetti hand sprouting from his forehead.
Swedish developer Zoink's kooky psychedelic adventure Stick it to the Man is coming to PC on 13th December via Steam.
Psychedelic platforming adventure Stick it to the Man is slated for a PS3 release on Wednesday, 20th November, developer Zoink! has announced.
Indies are scorching hot. Maybe it was Minecraft. Maybe it was Super Meat Boy. Maybe it was Journey. Either way, just weeks before the launch of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One it is indie developers who find themselves - whether they like it or not - on the front line of the next generation battle.
While the chance of Double Fine making a Psychonauts sequel remains slim, the kooky folks at Swedish studio Zoink are working on the closest thing to Tim Schafer's masterpiece with Stick it to The Man, a psychedelic 2D puzzle/platformer about a strange psychic fella who can hear people's thoughts and manifest them as stickers. Or, as protagonist Ray puts it, "I've got a pink spaghetti floating out of my head!"
Given Ray's newly scrambled brain, it's no surprise that the demo I play begins with Ray waking in an insane asylum. You see, Ray has a dangerous job: he tests hard hats. People drop things over his armoured noggin all day until something goes horribly wrong when a government plane drops a mysterious canister on him and his noodle sprouts a phantom, well, noodle.
Ray soon discovers that this apparition/appendage grants him a nifty super power that allows him to read people's minds. Better yet, their thoughts appear as stickers in this newly discovered plane of existence and Ray can use his "pink spaghetti" to pull said stickers into reality and even place them in other people's thoughts, if he so desires.
Swedish indie developer Zoink has revealed the intriguing-looking Stick it to the Man for PlayStation 3 and Vita.
A mix of platforming and adventure genres, players can alter the game's stylised 2D world by slapping stickers on its objects and inhabitants.
The game's hero, Ray, can also listen in on people's thoughts, which he hears as an inner monologue.
