It’s the kind of game that, as a two-person indie developer, anyone tells you ‘hey, don’t start with something big like this!’... err... In a distant future, the small exploration probe forma.8 is stranded alone on the surface of an alien planet. He got parted away from his companions by an accidental event and has a life or death mission to accomplish: he needs to find and recover a powerful energy source deep under the surface before it’s too late. Ancient civilisations, great perils and dystopian visions awaits him, and not everything is as it seems... Expand

    forma.8 combines an awesome art style with a very satisfying and varied level design to give life to a charming slow-paced metroidvania adventure, highly suggested to any lover of the genre.

    Despite these issues, I absolutely loved forma.8. It is a perfect example of the kind of unique content indie developers can offer without sacrificing aesthetics or an immersive environment. There are a few small kinks in the game, but it is absolutely a must-have!

    Forma.8 is good. In fact, it could quite easily be classed as great by some standards, but it definitely isn’t a game that I would recommend wholeheartedly to those without patience. It is a slow title that can grate against your patience in some cases, especially in regards to its respawn points, but thankfully still has many redeeming features that plenty of individuals will enjoy.

    Forma.8 does not invent anything new in the genre, but it got an artistic design and sound section that fit perfectly and make you feel in an atmosphere that will catch you with its variety of puzzles and challenges adding a very tight curve of difficulty. It is a good metroidvania game.
