I think I first saw forma.8 almost three years ago – in fact, development started back in 2013 – and I absolutely loved its minimalist art style and Metroidvania inspired design. It’s been a long time coming, but MixedBag have finally announced a release date of 23rd February, when it will be coming to PS4, PS Vita, Xbox One, Wii U and PC.
With vector drawn graphics and bright visuals that depict the alien world you’re exploring, there’s definitely a few hints of Pixeljunk Shooter to its look, but that’s no bad comparison to receive. It differs from that game with the Metroidvania open world, huge bosses, upgradeable abilities to the cute little floating ball with eyes that you control, and apparently a deep lore and story to explore as you do so.
