Schein is possibly the trickiest platformer you will play all year. Rise to the challenge! In this game light is the key to everything: Defeat deadly beasts, solve tricky puzzles and uncover hidden paths through the murky swamp. Wandering aimlessly through a dangerous swamp, you rely on the help of a little will-o'-the-wisp to light up your surroundings. Discover new elements of the world in the Irrlicht's colorful light, and find a way to overcome the obstacles you face, solve puzzles, and defeat your foes. The story, which unravels through emotional dialogs between the main protagonist and the witty Irrlicht, tells of a desperate young man, who ventures forth into the mystical swamp in search of his missing son.
After taking home the first prize at the Imagine Cup Worldwide Finals, we finally have the resources to release Schein! Work continues with more vigor than ever and to show you our progress, we release a further update of our demo.
This version features
Our Dev-Demo is merely a short demonstration of the basic gameplay techniques of this puzzle-jump ’n’ run, with which we want to enthrall you. The final game, to be released in the fall of 2013, will feature 12 levels guarded by 4 fierce monsters, plus many secrets which you may discover.
We would like to emphasize, that this is not a „regular“ demo, since many things will still change until the final release of our game. Our Dev-Demo should rather simply demonstrate our current state. It will be downloadable from our homepage and will be continuously updated – all the way until our final game release. This way everybody can experience how our game evolves and improves.
We are looking forward to lots of valuable feedback, which we will consider in our further development process.
Schein is currently being developed for Windows PC and requires a DirectX9 capable graphics card. For the controls we also support the Xbox 360 controller, apart from the conventional keyboard.
