Play the small exploration probe forma.8 and become stranded on the surface of an alien planet. Having been separated from your companions, you must confront a life-or-death mission alone: locate and recover a lost, powerful energy source before it’s too late. And, as is often the case, not everything is what it seems.

forma.8 will offer a huge, open world of secrets. You’ll solve ancient mysteries, gain power-ups, fight deadly enemies and powerful bosses and delve into deep, cryptic lore.

Who or what lived here? And when? What’s the secret behind its history?

The game’s unique visuals feature very high resolution and antialiasing in a combination of hand-draw vector graphics and 3D characters. The game world is brought to life in a silky smooth 60 frames-per-second.

From indie developer Mixed Bag, forma.8 will be available February 23rd on PS4, PSVita, Xbox One, Windows, Mac and Wii U.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
