Here’s a full play through of the High Strangeness demo we presented at MAGFest 11. High Strangeness is a story driven 12 bit action / adventure game inspired by Super Nintendo and Nintendo classics. Towards the beginning of the demo, the player is shown a brief exposition of the story’s overall plot, leading into a short combat sequence. As the battle ends, the protagonist, Boyd, is thrown into a strange new world where the player must rely on learned techniques to solve simple puzzles.
It should be said that this is only a demo, and should be considered a snippet of things to come. High Strangeness is planned to be 3 to 4 hours in length when complete, with expanded combat mechanics and more elaborate puzzles to solve.
High Strangeness is due in 2013 for PC with other platforms pending.
