the big pic­ture: creaks

Meet your new neigh­bours in Amanita De­sign’s odd in­die ti­tle, Creaks

XBox: The Official Magazine - - START -

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.
