Watch new trailer for SA’s own Semblance, coming to PC, Switch

Semblance is one of the more eagerly anticipated games coming from the African continent, the product of Nyamakop Games. Now, the studio has revealed a new trailer for the title, which is set to launch on Steam and Nintendo Switch.

The trailer is also accompanied by news that the game has a publisher in the form of Good Shepherd Entertainment, responsible for titles like the Oh Sir franchise and Breach and Clear: Deadline.

In case you’ve missed the game’s concept, Semblance is a side-scrolling platformer that allows you to deform the environment to progress.

“Can’t reach a collectible? Just deform and elevate a piece of the ground so that the point you jump from is higher. Nasty spikes in the way? Just deform and push-down the ground lower so that you can pass by. Squish, bounce, squash and transform the world- and yourself to solve problems,” reads the description on the new Steam page.

The Steam page lists the release date as “early 2018”.
