The debut title from Dutch developer Glowforth, Last Inua, is looking absolutely delightful. Described as an emotional platforming adventure, it has captured our attention for its gorgeous art style, atmospheric soundscape and inviting narrative. Here’s the official description:
“You guide an Inuit father and his son on their quest for survival. Father Ataataq has to guard his son Hiko, a gifted boy with supernatural abilities. Their world, the mythical North, is under attack by an ancient demon: Tonrar. Tonrar seeks to dominate the North and to do this he needs to destroy Hiko. But Tonrar is alone, Ataataq and Hiko have each other.”
You control both characters, which promises to add another differentiating layer to this already unique looking title. Especially as father and son share different abilities, the former using his strength and agility to manipulate the environment, while the latter his supernatural skills including the ability to warp across gaps and walk along spirit paths.
The game is anticipated in Q1 2014 on iPad and iPhone, and we’ll be looking to feature it in an upcoming issue. In the interim, you can enjoy the first gameplay trailer below and let us know what you think in the comments below.
