Retconquistador Of Your Heart: Continuity

By Kieron Gillen on December 2nd, 2009 at 2:26 pm.

Videogames are made of lovely.

Michael Rose posted Continuity over at Indie Games yesterday. I was going to steal the link without credit because he corrected my spelling on Twitter. I can’t bring myself to do it, because I’m not a total wanker. Well, not total. ANYWAY! Continuity is a platform-puzzler with an incredibly elegant twist – the levels are basically sliding puzzles, with you able to re-arrange the pieces to your own advantage. Press Space to zoom in and out from each level and go play.

    *he corrected MY spelling.

    no, no credit given at all :D

  5. Ocho says:

    Great game. Really impressed with the cleverness and elegance of the gameplay. The sound effects and music are nicely done as well.

  6. Ian says:

    Really good game, though I got bored with about 12 levels left.

  7. Jonas says:

    Shitsticks, this is really close to what we were working on for our game design project at university, until we ended up making a physics puzzle instead because we were afraid of missing the deadline. Ah well, you can’t win them all.

    Grrr… just can’t get the last key on the last level…

      …and needless to say worked out what to do the instant I had revealed my failure

    For some reason I cannot figure out, sometimes it doesn’t let you cross between the rooms even when they appear to line up correctly.

    • Patrick says:

      Some rooms don’t seem to allow you into other rooms (it would be nice if this was indicated). However, try shifting things around and going into a different room. It will work (at least it has so far).

      All the edges on the side you’re travelling from have to exactly match those on the side you’re travelling to. Even one pixel out is enough to kibosh it.

    Brilliant. I love the two-layer music as well.

  11. PleasingFungus says:

    This is really good!

    Really, really good.

    • PleasingFungus says:

      Only really got it at the end – it’s a matter of tracing paths, figuring out where and how to go, backtracing from your goal through all valid paths. (Except when it’s not, and they just have fun with things… as with the borderwalking level, or the Portal one.)

      The music is a really good touch too.

      (My brother hates it, though. Inexplicable!)

    I really enjoyed this one

  13. Bhazor says:

    Incredibly polished and complete for a brand new (as far as I know) concept.

    This guy’s site just got favourited.

  14. Patrick says:

    This is a really clever and very interesting game. Goes to show that sometimes less is more in game design. Great game!

  15. Jocho says:

    Brilliant!
