Dear friends! A little over 2 years ago our game designer Ilia Antonov told us about a global environmental movement Earth Hour, which is held by WWF. To be honest we were really hooked and inspired by the main idea of this event - to use your power to #ChangeClimateChange. And then we thought: can we create a game with a similar setting? Firstly we tried to imagine sudden tripping the light. Next – never having electricity. And finally darkness – everywhere. Can you conceive it? In such a simple manner TurnOn was born.
Today, when the next Earth Hour is coming, we are ready to tell you our own small story in hope that the world will become the way it was before but a little better and kinder. The game will be available soon this spring for Xbox One, PC and Mac on 19 languages, right now it's in the QA process and gets game age ratings (ESRB, PEGI and others). Thanks for being with us and your support. Visit Coming Soon Steam page Store.steampowered.com
TurnOn is an incredibly colorful and detailed puzzle platformer without platforms. The plot revolves around a small spark named Turnon, an alien space object, which flew through the atmosphere and hit in the city’s power station. There it came alive from the electric shock and became a rational being. As a result of the accident the city remains without electricity, and now Turnon, looks like a fireball with a pretty face, has to return the light back into the homes of citizens.
Professor Brain, a scientist from the power station, found Turnon at the time of the accident and decided to help him. Using minibus equipped with electric generator, they move around the city from one district to another and restore the power supply.
- Enjoy the setting! Be surprised how the world depends on electricity and what can happen if it suddenly disappears. Solve puzzles and figure out how to turn on the lights in every home, as well as fight unexpected enemies!
- Try platformer without platforms! The main character moves through the electrical wires. The mix of exploration and music levels makes the gameplay very immersive.
- Feel the visual storytelling! Tired of all those dialogs in your video games? Never mind, in TurnOn everything is purely visual, and the entire story is told through what you see (and sometimes what you don't).
