Ambitious new platformer takes the stage on Switch
US LAUNCH: 3D Platformer Glyph Flies Onto Nintendo Switch On Feb. 1st
Smash, don’t crash, double jump, and glide your way through sceneries never before tried, as you explore the edges of the maps for hidden secrets. Your quest, as a mechanical scarab that rolls up into a ball, or protrudes metal wings, is to rebuild the ancient temple city.
The adventure will come to players in the Americas on February 1st. It is already out in the EU and AU. Glyph is made by indie studio Bolverk Games out of Copenhagen, Denmark, and will launch at USD19.95. In fact, a find for a highly professional production that does well to immerse players and keep you going.
The studio published this trailer recently (ESRB):
The game is being reviewed well already, for example, by Vulgar Knight, saying nice things such as: "I can confidently say that Glyph will remain on a rotation to keep playing as it’s just so good,” and
"I have to point out the soundtrack: it’s fantastic.”
And it really is!
The music is wonderful and will keep you engaged even as the game seems to mock you - it’s a challenging enterprise to rebuild ancient temples, but eventually, you will succeed. Because of it, the feeling of reward is just so much bigger.
On Discord, enthusiastic player, xSkyDestroyerx, said upon the EU release:
“I know what I'm going to be doing all weekend now: Enjoying an Awesome Game!!!”
Relax or Run
In Glyph, you play as a sphere-shaped mechanical scarab, named Glyph, from a third-person perspective. The player has to practice precision, speed, and ingenuity to collect relics and artifacts while exploring a series of highly varied, charming, and treacherous levels.
Glyph appeals to both chill-out players and speedrunners as the open world allows for creative ways to move through the 80+ levels available with the release.
