Defunct is not a game that has been my radar, but any game that appears to mix a racing game with a platformer and a puzzler is guaranteed to pique my interest. The game from first-time indie developer, Freshly Squeezed, has just announced a release date for consoles, 19th December. Here’s the official description of the game as well as the new trailer –
Defunct is an indie adventure game by Freshly Squeezed with a focus on flow, speed, and gravity. Play as a broken robot who falls out of a giant cargo ship onto a post-human Earth, inhabited by robots.
Use gravity as your ally in your race back to safety. Reach the ship before it’s too late! Use your Gravitize engine to manipulate gravity in order to boost yourself downhill and release when going uphill. In this way, Defunct offers a satisfying combo of speed and jumps.
