Each week, Rectify Gaming looks through the indie games in development on Kickstarter and brings you the best looking, most promising, and most interesting of the bunch. Here’s what we like this week:
Mable & The Wood
Developed by: Andrew Stewart
Mable & The Wood is a 2D action/exploration game set in a land where the overuse of magic is draining the world of its color.
You play the part of a shape-shifting girl who can take the form of the beasts that she slays, but whose power is slowly destroying the world she is trying to save.
Explore the world to find the source of the darkness before the forest dies. Will you banish the darkness from the world, or will you become it?
Why it’s worth a look: One of the goals of Mable & The Wood is to create a world that is directly affected by the player’s actions. As you use magic, the world is drained of its life. Going too far could have dire consequences. The 2D world looks simultaneously inviting and foreboding, and the various powers and abilities that are currently in the game look intriguing and fun to play with.
Funding Status: Raised $1,454 of its $9,894 goal from 103 backers, with 29 days to go.
Release Date: February 2017
