the big picture: creaks
Meet your new neighbours in Amanita Design’s odd indie title, Creaks
We love a bit of the strange, the eerie and the wonderful, and for many years now the green-eyed monster has been lurking around OXM Towers with a longing stare at Amanita Design. Well, the beast can go back in its hole because next year Xbox users may finally get to experience the excellence of this quirky indie studio.
Recently announced Creaks is an upcoming 2D horror puzzle adventure game that continues the studio’s tradition of weird. Little is known about the game so far but the short announcement trailer reveals it to be a rather unsettling affair. The game will sport a gorgeous hand- drawn art style, similar to Amanita’s previous games Machinarium and
Samorost, and a fittingly arresting soundtrack. The majority of the game revolves around solving puzzles to progress but interestingly it won’t be a point and click adventure like the aforementioned games.
Amanita is well versed in creating vexing environmental puzzles so expect a challenge. The game has tentatively been announced for ‘PC and consoles’ but we’ve got our fingers crossed for a release on the Xbox One.
Creaks arrives sometime in 2019.
