Grip Digital, publisher behind the upcoming The Solus Project
, has teamed up with developer Right Nice Games to bring gamers the 3D platforming title Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island
, which will offer a vibrant world and something different from the "cluttered world" of MOBAs and Survival games.
Skylar & Plux are two heroes taking on an adventure that sees them trying to prevent the efforts of the villainous CRT from conquering and taking over their home to transform it into a wasteland. CRT also designed Skylar and she was CRT's most potent weapon, fully equipped with a "powerful mechanical arm augmentation". Despite being CRT's creation, Skylar must now become the demise of the villain and save her homeland from going to waste. Details are very thin on her buddy Plux who's just the "eloquent sidekick that every good action platformer needs to have".
As the team set out to thwart CRT's plans, they will come across plenty of things:
Together, they will explore lush beaches, burning volcanoes, freezing mountains and merciless desert, fight an army of CRT’s henchmen, collect powerful upgrades like the Magnetic Glove
Eric Valentine, level designer and narrative director for Right Nice Games, explains more on the adventure to come:
Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island is a passionate homage to the 3D platformers of our youth. Go on an action packed adventure, collecting gadgets helping you explore a beautiful paradise and save it from evil.
Jakub Mikyska, CEO of GRIP Digital, pays homage to classic 3D platformers:
Anyone who enjoys the classic 3D platformers like Crash Bandicoot or the Jak and Daxter series will instantly fall in love with Skylar & Plux. There’s a lot of personality and humor, colorful characters and hours of great gameplay for the fans of the genre, as well as newcomers to the 3D platformer games.
