It seems the river of indie titles continues to flow unceasingly on Xbox One. Another was announced today, and it's called Ginger: Beyond The Crystal
. A colorful title set in a lush fantasy world, Ginger
has the look and feel of a Nintendo 64-era 3D platformer but also adds some modern touches, which you can see for yourself in independent developer BadLand Indie's Steam Greenlight preview trailer below.
This 3D Platform Adventure follows a heroic young boy named Ginger whose entire life crumbled around him when an ancient crystal exploded. Thinking he is the sole survivor of his world he is astonished when he meets another lone survivor, the mayor, who explains to him that all the people who one inhabited their beloved planet have been taken to other planets and are now trapped there.
Ginger must traverse the crystal to reach other worlds where he will be able to find and save his people. Along the way Ginger must reconstruct the world as he knew it by building homes for the people he manages to save. Full of mini-games, puzzles, skins to earn, and, of course, platforms you'll spend hours aiding Ginger on his quest Beyond The Crystal.Ginger
is planning on a 2016 release. If you happen to be at Madrid Games Week, it's currently there on display until the 4th.
