Square Enix Collective has revealed that Octahedron, the 2D vertical action platformer by indie studio Demimonde, is now available on PS4, Xbox One and PC. It’s priced at £9.99 but players who pick it up soon can take advantage of a 25% launch discount.

The rhythm-synced platformer brings its kaleidoscope of colour to console and PC gamers alike, challenging them with mastering the game’s 2D handcrafted levels in order to escape the strange subterranean world of Veetragoul. Players must create their own platforms in quick time to survive, fighting back against scores of enemies out to take you down in the process.

It’s an energised encounter, running at a smooth 60 FPS and brilliantly synced with a soundtrack created by popular video game composer Chipzel and trance producer and DJ Andre Sobota, amongst others.

Phil Elliott, Director of Indie Publishing at Square Enix West said:

[blockquote]With a genre like the platformer, managing to do something genuinely new is an immense challenge, but when we came across Octahedron and its creator Marco Guardia, we knew that here was a game destined to be different. It’s one of those games that has to be played to be believed. The juxtaposition of the game’s soundtrack tying in with the on screen action really engages players in a way few titles can manage.[/blockquote]

The aforementioned Marco Guardia tapped into his musical prowess throughout the development of Octahedron, contributing his own tracks to the soundtrack. Guardia had previously made his name as one half of Swiss trance act Flutlicht back in 2001.
