The Way is a 2D puzzle platformer game inspired by classic titles like Another World, Heart of Darkness and Flashback.
It tells a story about a member of space explorers team, who lost his beloved one and cannot accept her death. Finding ancient writings on eternal existence during one of his last expeditions makes him come back there in search of the meaning of life itself.
He will soon know that the planet has its own secrets and problems that he will need to face in order to get what he is looking for.Game Features:
The Way is the Another World spiritual successor we've been waiting for! From playing the game, I would say that a gamepad or anything with dual analog sticks is almost a necessity for this game. There are certain parts of the game that are almost unbeatable with the keyboard and require analog sticks. This is because some levels require so much control over your movement that keyboards simply cannot keep up. Luckily, this means the game experience is one that requires you to be on your toes throughout the game. I found myself enjoying mechanics like the regular flips between twitch action and those lull moments when you're just planning how to beat the level. The puzzle difficulty is quite demanding, but it never felt unfair or even unreasonably taxing. The visual design is quite beautiful. Although it is not quite as smooth as Another World's flat plane. However, I don't find that I mind the shift to painted pixels at all because they're beautiful and used to great visual effect. The game took only about ten hours for me to beat and I enjoyed every second of it. It's really the game for all fans of Another World!
