Verlet Swing for PS4, NS & XB1 – Let’s swing in Slumberland!
PlayStation®4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox™One Ι Genre: Vaporwave Swing Game
Everything evaporates! We’re in the age of Vaporwave; this aesthetic movement during the early 2010s years is one of the most interesting ones for quite some time. Its explosion is mainly due to social networks (in particular 4chan, Tumblr, Reddit, and Bandcamp), and it is deeply linked to the 80s & 90s retrofuturistic style, and cyberpunk movement. Incorporating glitch art, anime, and pop-icons; the Vaporwave movement is considered as a sort of ironic answer to all the hi-tech commodities with a particular focus on entertainment and computing. Very popular in Japan; indie artists like Boogie Idol released wonderful micro-masterpieces like Satsui no Chihei: Ending or Kyōtai, but there are many others who just wait to be discovered.
Prominent also in the indie video games’ subculture; the first admittedly Vaporwave title has been Mall Quest. Developed by Byzantinium, and released in 2014; this free game for PC is set in a randomly generated mall where the player must find all the items present in the shopping list without being touched by the little felons who haunt that place. Filled with not so subtle references to 90s movies, toys, and games; this title kept glued to the monitor, thousands of players who really want to play with something absolutely different from all the rest!
Since then, many other developers created their own Vaporwave game; titles like Islands: Non-Places, [V A S T] aesthetic simulator, and obviously Hotline Miami gave an impressive boost to all the industry, encouraging people to do better and better. For example, finally, Flamebait Games has released Verlet Swing for PS4, NS, and XB1!
Set in a weird dreamy world full with glitch art, and acid colors; this game is an actual hymn to originality. Jump far and high within more than 100 levels lovely crafted pixel by pixel by the greatest cyber-artisans on Earth; you’re armed with your faithful hookgun you must explore every single corner to find the magical warp door that will instantly take you in another world, but keep your eyes open; ’cause a single obstacle could stop your ascent to the glory.
Part Tarzan, part Spider-Man, and part Little Nemo in Slumberland; Verlet Swing for PS4, NS, and XB1 spread colors, weirdness, and a very unique art-style.
Simple to begin but hard to master; this (N)indie game is much better than many self-proclaimed AAA titles, providing a real challenge that gives no concessions to anyone. Providing also an awesome sense of speed; thanks to the user-friendly editor you can create your own world, and swing around with no limits. If you love arachno-superheroes, parkour, and VCR Ａ Ｅ Ｓ Ｔ Ｈ Ｅ Ｔ Ｉ Ｃ, don’t look further!
