Today is definitely the day for excellent game names. Not only do we have The Rise Of Fatty Sparkles, but we also have Harold. Harold, as you’ll already have assumed, is a “platformer racing puzzle game”, from first-time devs Moon Spider Studios. It’s a 2D side-scrolling game, and it looks very pretty indeed. And oh good grief so weird.
Well, take a look:
Again, like Fatty Sparkles, Harold comes from a recently formed indie studio with a bunch of development vets, this time from EA, Ignition, Dreamworks and even Studio Ghibli. Here you play a guardian angel who must guide Harold through obstacle courses, by manipulating the environment such that the incompetent runner might stand a chance of winning. As well as sabotaging the chances of other racers – you know, how angels are wont to.
It’s due to arrive on PC in 2013, but they’re not being more specific. Although if you’re heading to PAX, you can take a look at it there.
