And You Thought Platformers Had Run Out Of New Ideas

Take a look at this video of indie platformer Oliver and Spike in action. As it starts, you're probably thinking that it looks pretty nice, a comfortable modern take on 3D jumping. (Oliver & Spike: Dimension Jumpers, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

THAT actually took me by surprise! a great new take on platforming. not just jumping the platforms but going through different environment while doing so! excited to see if the game itself is actually good

The way the world changed reminded me of Quantum Conundrum.

That looks pretty cool. I wonder what they will do with Wii U version. I still like a platformer. The website tells you a little more. Here is the link for anyone interested.

I posted the link because somehow I have never heard of this game and it peaked my interest.

Why not just have it be water the entire time?

Time limit for how long you can use it, maybe.

I never once thought platformers ran out of ideas, they just fucking abandoned the genre, just like beat'em ups/Brawlers.
