Vesper Out Now on Steam & GOG.com
Deck13 Spotlight has announced the release today of Vesper, an atmospheric adventure-platformer created by Italian indie developer Cordens Interactive, on Steam and GOG.com. Dive into a colorful, eerie world as you take control of a small android and – by manipulating light, ancient machinery and hostile robots – try to navigate a post-post-apocalyptic land on a mission to bring back the light and save your kind.
Vesper mixes the gameplay of classic ‘90s atmospheric platformers with newly inspired mechanics. Take control of Seven, a small android stranded on an eerie planet once populated by a highly advanced civilization, now ruled by hostile robots that eradicate any signs of life that don’t belong to their network. You’ll face thought-provoking questions about free will, determinism and more on a journey about the struggle between life and technology.
Use the Drive Gun to wield the light in order to overcome obstacles, take control of your enemies and turn them against each other. The game offers a variety of different solutions for every encounter, allowing you to hide in the shadows to avoid contact or engage enemies head-on. Choosing a path that fits your play style is the core design philosophy of Vesper.
