Watch us play Dark Matter from 5pm BST

New indie Metroidvania is dark, matters.

So, Dark Matter's a new indie Metroidvania-styled game. Wait, come back! Developer InterWave's promising to distinguish itself from the thickening crowd of similar games by putting a slant on the adventure side of exploration, as well as throwing in a handful of novel mechanics - and with the well-received Nuclear Dawn under their belts, it's a promise they should come good on.

You can have a look at it for yourself as Ian Higton plays through the opening hours from 5pm BST here, and the devs will be on hand to answer any questions and provide some guidance. Should you like what you see you can help make it a reality by giving Dark Matter's Kickstarter a little boost.
