Perhaps endless first person shooters and countless indie platformers aren’t your thing. Likely enough, you might tire of the endless swaths of mindless foreign soldiers, zombies, or demons. Maybe you’re bored of clinging to walls and killing a never-ending list of historical dignitaries, or better yet, you simply want to try something different in gaming.
Well, the developers over at Deco Digital & Bevel Studios are offering something different, Pneuma: Breath of Life.
This is the first person puzzler of 2015 which is designed to force players think outside the box and explore beyond what they know as reality. Play as a god, ‘Pneuma’, and listen to his comical self-obsessed inner monologue whilst he takes you on a journey exploring and traversing his puzzling world. Rack your brain and progress through a series of environmental challenges that require perception, observation, and lateral thinking skills to succeed. Lift bridges, rotate platforms and move entire buildings all with the power of your mind.
It looks like Pneuma may be the pallet cleanser we all could use before the barrage of E3 and fall line up of sequels, prequels, and “that looks a lot like…,” later this year.Further reading: Microsoft, Pneuma Breath of Life, Video Games, Xbox, Xbox One
