Los Angeles-based videogame developer Turbo Button have released a new trailer for upcoming adventure-puzzle title Along Together ahead of the release later this week.
Along Together puts the player in the role of an imaginary friend, helping a small child overcome obstacles and find their way through the environment. The player and the child need to work together to solve certain puzzles, and the player needs to move obstacles and operate mechanisms to help the child move forward. Interaction happens by way of the player using the Daydream controller to move a semi-transparent giant hand, picking up, grabbing or pulling objects to clear the way for the child companion to progress.
The child is searching for their lost pet, and it is the players job, as their invisible companion and guardian, to help find them. The child can be either male of female, and they travel through bright, colourful worlds searching for the missing pet, and for hidden secrets. The development team say they gained inspiration from classic point-and-click adventures such as the Monkey Island series, and also from iconic ‘imaginary friend’ comic Calvin and Hobbes.
Developer Turbo Button were originally established in 2015 as a small, four person team and have since gained praise for polished mobile titles such as SMS Racing and Adventure Time: Magic Man’s Head Games.
Along Together is set to be released on 27th April 2017 for the Google Daydream platform, priced at $9.99 (USD). The announcement trailer is available to view below.
