The hand drawn atmosphere and pace of this game really spoke to me. Thanks for uploading it, and I hope you make more!
The Mooseman (Demo)
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
The Mooseman is an atmospheric 2D adventure game set in the mysterious lands of Perm chud' tribes. The player's avatar is the Mooseman; a mythological character from perm animal style objects, which we were greatly inspired by.
You are a mythical character called the Mooseman and you have the ability to see the spirits. You are about to visit three layers of this universe - the first one is the lower world where dwell ancients gods and spirits of the dead...
This is a second demo version of our work in progress.
The mechanics are simple: all the levels have two sides - one that exists in the human world and one that exists in a spirit world. They are separated, but interact in some way or another. The Mooseman has the ability to traverse across both worlds.
The Mooseman does not jump, or shoot, which is different from many other puzzle platformers. His only ability is to change the world which he is currently present in.
- Deep atmosphere with gripping soundtrack.
- Thoughtful world filled with secrets
- Storyline based on finno-ugric myths.
- Silent narrative.
- Simple controls, but challenging puzzles.
Move - Left, Rigth or A,D
Transition into the spirit world - Space
We've finished the first part of the game which you may see in the demo version (link below). It is about of a quater of the total length of the game. Yes, the game will be a short one, but packed with atmosphere and cool stuff. We're deep into development now, and we're planning to finish the game by the end of 2016 (we hope).
