“Out of Line is being designed with a stylized approach. The mechanics of the game revolve around San’s spear, something the character sees as a tool that will help him navigate this strange world,” explains Francisco Santos, Lead Artist at Nerd Monkeys. “We want players to learn through experimentation, constantly tinkering with puzzles until they find a logical solution. This design philosophy plays a thematic role in our game, as most individuals find their purpose through trial and error.”
“We are thrilled to be the publisher Out of Line later this year as we are keen to bring to fans of puzzle, platformers and action games a unique experience and a full immersion thanks to the story and the beautiful poetic world of Out of Line” adds Philippe Dao, CEO & Co-founder of Hatinh Interactive.
Out of Line’s narrative is told through its beautiful hand painted artistic landscape which points to relevant topics such as oppression, isolation, courage, optimism and hope. Players can expect to mull over philosophical depictions in between puzzle segments, especially as they relate to human existentialism in the age of technology. Though the world may seem mysterious at first glance, players will steadily find themselves relating to San and his experiences as each chapter unfolds.
