Shape of the World release colourful new demo
Developers Hollow Tree Games’ serene first person exploration game is set to release next month.
Hollow Tree Games’ serene first-person exploration game started life as a successful Kickstarter, which was funded back in 2014. The concept that was laid out in the initial funding campaign is now a reality and players can finally explore this surreal, organic world that reacts to their presence.
In what is described as a ‘psychedelically colourful ecosystem’ players might find some solace from the competitive environment of multiplayer games and get to relax a little and just take in the scenery. Everybody needs a timeout every now and then right? The game features a multitude of flourishing flora, as well as rambling waterfalls, burgeoning mountains, glowing monoliths and graceful creatures all realised in a striking, minimalist art style.
Interestingly, Shape of the World features no puzzles and no overarching narrative, instead choosing to offer players an immersive and contemplative experience in a world that procedurally generates around you. The Steam page states the game is ‘1-3 hours’ long and could be considered a perfect ‘escape from work, anxiety and stress’.
Shape of the World is set to release on Steam June 5th and arrive on other platforms June 6th.
