So today I was scrolling through the Indie Gaming reddit, minding my own business, when I came across this monstrosity. He looks like a demented, Pans Labyrinth-ian version of the Forest Spirit from Princess Mononoke.
Anyways, this monster comes from the upcoming indie game Strawhart, an upcoming first person action-adventure game where your goal is to make your way through complex environments using shape shifting magic.
“In Strawhart, your only weapon is your mind,” developer Cypher Creations writes on Twitter. “You’ll have to improvise if you find yourself in a fight.”
From what screenshots and footage demonstrate so far, Strawhart looks like a cross between The Chronicles of Narnia with Portal gameplay elements. Check out the gif below of the player navigating a small area:
