Not Limbo: Fighty Silhouetted Platformer Feist Released

You do murders, for one thing

I know what you're thinking: "Shadowy forest, spiky monsters, swinging log trap, silhouettes a-go go - this'll be one of those there Limbo 'em ups!" Pal, you're a chump. Feist [official site] lets you fight back, for starters, flinging pointy sticks through their faces. Feist may have a touch of Limbo look (with lovely colourful backgrounds!) but it's a fighty platformer, not a puzzly one.

Feist is out now, released last night for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Developers Bits & Beasts have been working on Feist for over six years, hand-making all those spikes and trees for you to murder everyone with. It really isn't Limbo, you guys. At the same time, it does have a fine magical tone to the world. The devs say they're influenced by films like The Dark Crystal and Hedgehog in the Fog, which does make me wary given how long Young Alice had nightmares about The Dark Crystal.

Feist is available on Steam, GOG, Humble (DRM-free and with a Steam key), and Itch. With a launch discount until next Thursday, it's £10 on Steam but £9 elsewhere.

I think I'm on Kieron's side about Limbo, for reference. Not just because I think declaring my alignment will still annoy John all these years later. Rick Dangerous for Goths, John.
