A first-person platformer with a difference, Standpoint sets itself apart from other games in the genre by incorporating a serious puzzle element into its game design; the ability for the player to change the orientation of the game world. With this unusual game mechanic in addition to a mysterious voiceover that offers clues, and numerous collectibles and puzzles, really seems to be trying to offer players something different.
Here’s the official description:
A labyrinth fades into view; a space you control but that holds you. Completely lost with nowhere else you could be. Standpoint is a first-person puzzle platformer where the player possesses the ability to change the orientation of the world. Explore the labyrinth-like environment, solving puzzles and collecting secrets, in order to overcome the stages of Grief. And ask yourself, do the narrator’s cryptic clues to the world hide some deeper sentiment? With every wall potentially the floor, take advantage of the variety of ways to approach obstacles. Turn a perilous corridor of lasers into a simple pit. Break through barriers as you drift through the tunnels. Even use death to your advantage. When up can become down at any moment, will you fly or fall?
Standpoint launches on the Xbox One today for a fairly cheap price in most regions. Will you be giving it a go or are you enjoying another puzzler on the console? Let us know what games you recommend in the comments below.Microsoft, Video Games, Xbox One, Xbox One Games
