Solo developer, Tom Methven and publishers, Armor Games Studios are pleased to reveal SOLAS – a synthwave-infused puzzle game that utilises synchronized rhythmic movement to unravel a sprawling world of challenges.
Along with the launch of the Steam page, the announcement is accompanied by a brand new trailer that features some of the chill vibes players will experience as they explore a strange machine powered by music. As players experiment and begin to learn the rules governing this broken world, they’ll be consumed by intricate interlocking systems and the omnipresent pounding beat of the infernal machine.
SOLAS is made up of a single, constantly simulated, seamless world. The initial pulses emitted from the logo flow through every puzzle. Each room solved serves as a smaller piece of a greater whole. Every gate opened unlocks new paths to explore.
Designed from the ground up to be colourblind-friendly by default, SOLAS’ distinctive glyphs also form the basis of its unique aesthetic, while contrast sliders allow players to tune the game to their specific needs. Furthermore, SOLAS communicates through its design and abstract symbolism, inviting players of all languages to enjoy the same experience.
