Indie game studio Turtle Cream have teamed up with PokPoong Games and have just released their gameplay trailer for their new game 6180 The Moon, which looks to be a very interesting puzzler using screen wrap mechanics to achieve your goals. Turtle Cream are a studio from South Korea and have been developing games for the past three years after being founded in 2009 creating their first two titles for the IGF in China 2010 called Cut & Paste which reached the final, along with Sugar Cube which won the contents. Sugar Cube was then later developed into a full game making quite the stir.
6180 The Moon looks to be a great new puzzler from Turtle Cream and PokPoong Games where you play as the moon having to overcome this increasingly more difficult puzzler. Using the ability to wrap around the screen you are able to navigate the levels and via switches and breakable blocks you can succeed in reaching the levels goal. Check out the trailer below:
The graphics styling seems to be a very interesting choice looking to be styled in a highly reto and stylistic manner throw back, reminding me greatly of the classic wire framed space shooters of the early arcade days.
The story that Turtle Cream have given this puzzler is very interesting as you play the moon who goes looking to find the mysteriously disappeared sun. The story has a very old fashioned fable-like quality to it making the story sound very interesting, however it is impossible to see how much narrative will be put into the final game, though the overall story sounds quite interesting.
6180 The Moon is going to be submitted to the IGF in China this year as a join venture from Turtle Cream and PokPoong Games and looks to be shaping up to be an interesting new puzzle game. 6180 The Moon is billed to be released towards the end of 2012.
