Team Gotham Announces Solo
It was announced by independent Madrid-based studio Team Gotham, Solo, their passion-fueled exploration game about love. Players travel through an archipelago, solving puzzles to pursue enlightenment about this mysterious phenomenon. The game’s colorful, illustrative style brings a distinctive look to the project, along with the game’s imaginative, metaphorical approach.
Check out the Announcement trailer of Solo, featuring some gameplay footage:
“With an expected release in Q1 2018, the team has launched a funding campaign on Fig today at www.Fig.co/Solo . The campaign runs through February 23 with a goal of $64,500 for the development, publishing and marketing of the game on PC and Mac.
The game begins by prompting players about their current and past relationships, whether they will play as a male or female sailor and the gender for their beloved. Each island the sailor visits represents a unique puzzle to solve and presents the player with different questions. Just like love, there is no single path, and players can discover a variety of ways to solve the puzzles. Each island represents a unique aspect of love to explore: wind represents the passage of time, magnetism represents attraction, water represents tears and sadness, and fire represents passion and destruction.
Vlambeer’s indie game pioneer Rami Ismail calls Solo “A very personal, meditative and gorgeous game.”
