Control multiple clones simultaneously in this clever 2D puzzle platformer.
Instantion started out as a submission to the 2012 GITHUB GameOff. It was originally called Archetype, if you look hard enough you could play it online (but I don't recommend it :)). It had less than one month of development time, I was also still learning how to use Unity. After failing to place as a finalist, I started to work on something else, leaving Archetype behind as another unfinished project. But a couple months went by and Double Fine released The Cave. After playing that for a few hours I decided to dust off my GITHUB project and actually finish it. Little did I know how much more work would actually be required to complete this thing.
Instantion is a 2D puzzle platformer featuring unique clone gameplay.
Control multiple clones simultaneously while solving mind-bending puzzles. Instantion combines dungeon-style puzzle design and trajectory 'sling-shot' aiming with elements like gravity effects, teleportation devices and clone modification. Progress through 50 levels with over 120 puzzles, pushing blocks, hitting switches, finding keys, avoiding lasers and more! Solve each level with as little clones possible, in the shortest time to get the best grade!
Extra difficulties are included for even more challenge!
Sorry if all this sounds PR'y...I'll start with the personality now...
So ya... INSTANTION is coming out very soon, April 10th 2014. I just sent out around 60 promo codes to the press. I haven't actually worked on the game in a while. Its all been business, setting up a company, banking, registering with Apple and Google. I miss actually designing and developing. It was quit a ride, this is my first game. We'll not really, I made a few little things before but this is the first one I'm releasing officially. I made it with the Unity game engine, did all the modelling with Blender and textures/art with Gimp and Inkscape. If I never bought Unity Pro, this would've been made with 100% free software. So yeah I'm going to be putting out some more videos as we get closer to release. Hope you like it!
