Fluid-focused physics-based puzzle game Vessel is launching on PlayStation 3 March 11, developer Strange Loop Games announced today.
Vessel puts players in the boots of inventor Arkwright, creator of living, liquid machines called “Fluros.” His creations, as creations are wont to do in fiction, go a bit batty and wind up terrorizing the world, forcing Arkwright to set out and stop them.
According to studio head John Krajewski, the team at Strange Loop sunk a lot of time into nailing down their liquid simulation technology, and the result of those efforts are physics-based puzzles entirely founded on that simulation designed to give players “a really unique experience not yet explored in videogames.”
By Krajewski’s account, Vessel clocks in at over 10 hours with multiple worlds, liquid types, and puzzle styles. You can see the game in action in the video embedded below.
