A physics-based puzzle adventure game that looks like it was made entirely out of clay: that’s pretty much what Second Order (a studio made of former Ubisoft and RedLynx Studio developers) has to offer with Claybook! It uses a custom “Clayfield” technology, that allowed the developers to create “true-to-life volumetric clay visuals and physics”. It will be released in March in Europe and North America, and will cost 14.99€ / $14.99.
Here’s a trailer, some details, and some screenshots for the game:
Claybook challenges players’ to solve brain-bending puzzles, create and share moldable landscapes, and uncover the squishy possibilities of this limitless clayground.
