Life-Building Puzzler Urges You to Experiment

Life-Building Puzzler Urges You to Experiment

Incredipede's Quozzle can grow whatever she needs to succeed, including limbs and wings.

Okay, arachnophobes in the audience should not look at Incredipede's trailer, but everyone else should, especially if you like peculiar physics puzzles. Quozzle can grow her own limbs and, though this helps her navigate the game world, the results of this life-bending experiment can be a little ... eerie. The levels are gorgeous, mind you; even when Quozzle's limbs are burning in lava, the background's something to look at.

Quozzle's exploring the terrain to find her sisters and, while the trailer doesn't hint at enemies as such, the environment is enough to cause even someone as flexible as Quozzle grief. There are sixty levels and three game worlds in all, plus a level editor so you can puzzle other Quozzles.

"It's been a long, hard road," said developer Colin Northway, who created Incredipede while travelling in Honduras last year. "I think of that time as time spent hacking away vines in the jungle looking for the golden city," Northway sighed. "Now I'm finally ready to haul my finds back to civilization and put on a show!"

PC and Mac users can have game now via developers Northway Games for $14.99; Northway hopes to take this to Steam Greenlight later.

Incredipede: Our puzzles will leave you stumped.

Its so sdorable /)^3^(\ and that art styles bitchin.

Best idea for a game I've seen in a while, and it looks wonderfully executed. :)

I've played a similar flash game, pretty much same mechanics without the art style.

Visuals and music can make a big difference, I'm not so sure it's 15 dollars of difference though, not for me anyway.

I got it already, it's rather good although the first world is really simple although I think that's to show you some of the things you can do to get you thinking along the right lines. Second world hasn't been *too* bad yet but certainly requiring a lot more experimentation and thought.

Looks like the flash game is by the same authors.

Looks really fun. Might give it a try. Also the graphics are sweet.

If what the trailer showed isn't the full extent of the game, this looks pretty awesome. Apart from the art style. It's creepy in a bad sort of way.

Breaking news: Graphically pretty version of the free Flash game "Fantastic Contraption" costs $15.

Calling it a life-building puzzler is stretching it a bit.
