ABOUT THE GAME AND THE STORY

Return to the Surface is a first-person puzzle-plattform video game. You wake up in an abandoned underground-laboratory and of course your aim is to return to the surface. A robot, named Rusty, leads you the only way through a lot of training chambers. To cross the chambers you get a very special weapon prototype.

That weapon allows you to aim and shoot energy bullets. But unlike normal bullets, these bullets survive the first collision and get reflected. Furthermore there are three different types of energy bullets for the weapon. For each of them you can define a trajectory. Once set, you can walk independently from the trajectory. That allows to shoot three different energy bullets from three different places at the same time. These features are needed to solve the puzzle in the different training chambers.

The training chambers contain different types of Jump&Run elements, enemies, deadly areas and of course a lot of tricky puzzles. Most of them are built around the functionality of the weapon. Since the weapon act not as usual, you must think outside the box to solve the puzzles.


ABOUT THE CURRENT VERSION

The game supports german and english. The voice of Rusty (the robot on every picture) is in german because we are a german indi game development studio. But you can choose subtitles in both languages. iOS version coming soon.

You can download the demo here!
Or buy the full game on itch.io
