Developer Grip Games announced today that they will be bringing Unmechanical: Extended Edition to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 early next year. The title is a re-release of the original Unmechanical, which was developed by Talawa Games and Teotl Studios for Windows PC.
Influenced by fellow indie platformers Limbo and Machinarium, Unmechanical places gamers into the body of a tiny flying robot. Kidnapped and placed into a mysterious underground complex, our tiny hero must solve a litany of puzzles in order to escape the place. Along the way, he may just figure out who or what brought him here in the first place.
The Extended Edition of the title will include the entire original release, as well as additional bonus content. Exclusive to the console versions of the title will be a completely new adventure set following the events of the original story, which will see players returning to the complex in order to save a friend.
In a bit of unfortunate news, Grip Games has announced that a planned PlayStation Vita version of Unmechanical: Extended Edition has been canceled for the time being. The portable port, which may be revived eventually, was originally announced alongside the current-gen and PS3 versions of the title.
As a fan of platformers, which is something I never thought I would have said following the glut of them in the early 2000s, consider me intrigued about Unmechanical. I’m digging the unique look Grip Games has created here and there appears to be a ton of variety when it comes to the puzzle department.
We will continue to have coverage of Unmechanical: Extended Edition in the lead-up to its release early next year, so stay tuned!
