One of the smaller standouts of the Microsoft E3 conference was the indie game, Tunic. It’s an exploration game that stars a little fox, with a big sword, exploring a vast world.
The game is still a ways away from being done, with a planned release for next year. However, we do have a little bit of insight thanks to IGN.com who spoke to the game’s developer, Andrew Shouldice.
The one-man team of Dicey, reassures players that his game is more than just a cute little fox running around a map. He says, “The combat is technical” and “will require decision making.” It will also “require careful exploration and planning.”
Sounds like players who love to traverse, search, and fight, will have a lot of fun. It should appeal to Zelda fans as well, as the trailer reveals a lot of movement and features very much like the beloved Nintendo series.
You can watch the trailer for the game on publisher Finji’s YouTube channel. You can see the full IGN.com article, which includes notes from the author about his time with the E3 demo, on the company’s website.
Tunic will launch on the Xbox One and Steam in 2019. You can add it to your Steam wish list now.
