Indie studio MixedBag has announced their newest minimalist sci-fi adventure titled forma.8 for a large variety of platforms including PC, PlayStation 4 and Wii U.

The two person team based in Turin, Italy revealed the title through the PlayStation Blog, detailing that the game has been in-development for nearly two years, beginning with a little gameplay concept centered on an experimental control system for touch devices. Since then the game has evolved into the team's own take on the classic Metroidvania formula, offering a very minimalistic gameplay experience.
In the distant future, a small exploration probe, forma.8, is stranded alone on the surface of an alien planet. It was parted from its companions by chance, and has a life or death mission to accomplish: it must find and recover a powerful energy source deep under the surface before it’s too late. Ancient civilizations, great perils, and dystopian visions await it, and not everything is as it seems.

Floating gracefully in mid air, with a control system that aims to give players a true sense of flying, forma.8 starts with no powers, no weapons, and no hints of what to do and where to go; it’s up to the player to explore the planet, deal with its often hostile inhabitants, and slowly uncover the story. There’s no verbal communication in the game — everything is conveyed to the player with images, sounds, and the gameplay itself.
Forma.8 is in development on iOS, Linux, Mac, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U and Windows PC for release in 2014. You can check out the game's announcement trailer and screenshots below.
