6180 The Moon Is A Very Pretty Thing

Having recently thrust itself into the ungainly cockfight of Greenlight, Turtle Cream and PokPoong Game's 6180 The Moon has reminded me to post its utterly gorgeous trailer. Incredibly simple-looking - basically a circle moving around some white boxes and spikes - it manages to be really very enchanting too.

And also as batshit as its excellent name. The press release, not quite translated from Korean (and I make no judgement here, my Korean is terrible), explains,

"'6180 the moon' is platformer game with unique mechanic. "Moon jumps very high". Top and Bottom of the screen are connected. Gamer doesn't die, even if moon fell down. It will be released at Feb. 2013."

Visually it's remarkably similar to 1000 Amps, that I can't believe you STILL haven't bought and played. But clearly the ideas are very different, and certainly more peculiar here. As the trailer progresses, I become less and less convinced I know what's going on. Which makes me want to play it more and more.
