The Swedish developer Niklas Hallin announces Molly Medusa: Queen of Spit, a 3D adventure where everyone turns to stone. Indie game developer, musician and debut book author Niklas Hallin (Yono And The Celestial Elephants, Belladonna) teamed up with Burning Planet, aka Max Malmquist and Karl Rosqvist, who both have long backgrounds in punk rock/metal bands (such as Danzig, Junk Stars and Michael Monroe). Now they are ready to reveal their next project. Find below i gameplay trailer of the game. Below is the statement by Niklas Hallin:
I’m a Swedish self-employed game developer. In 2017, I released Yono and the Celestial Elephants, a Zelda-like adventure about a naïve young elephant god. It’s finally time for my next big game, Molly Medusa: Queen of Spit, and this time we’re making full use of the 3D space!
Here is an overview of the game:
Molly is a sculptor’s apprentice doomed to live as a snake-haired Medusa – and so, any living thing that approaches is instantly transformed into a stone statue. Molly’s quest takes her through a series of mystical temples as she struggles with loneliness and alienation. Inside these temples, gravity is “local.” Molly’s “down” is calculated from the surface she is currently standing on, meaning she can easily walk up walls, or upside down into ceilings. This allows the level design to spin around and curl into physically impossible mazes. Petrified enemies accompany gravity puzzles and non-Euclidean architecture, in an “MC Escher” treasure hunt.
Molly Medusa Queen of Spit will come out on Nintendo Switch in Spring 2023. Stay tuned for more information.
