Vessel (launching on March 1st for PC and Steam, coming soon to consoles) is an indie title that looks to combine the puzzle elements of Portal 2 (I’m thinking of the various gels used to navigate Aperture Labs) with the beautiful platforming elements of Braid. It may be a tad unfair to compare Vessel to those two games, but those were the first two that popped in my head.
Check out Strange Loop Games’ website, there’s a neat little development blog, as well as a bit more background on the story of the game, which, going solely from the trailer is about how the world has been changed by an invention called Fluro, which creates robotic minions from various liquids (lava, water, some kind of glowing green goo). Throw in a mystery involving the creator of the Fluro surrounding his latest invention and count me in!
