Last month, indie game Defunct, emerged with a fresh coat of paint. A newly revitalized art-style and feel and a lot of new ideas for the gameplay. Since then the game has been playable for consumers, for example on the Indievelopment festival in the Netherlands.
And now, there is a shiny and fresh new trailer:
Remind me, what was Defunct about again?
Defunct is an adventure game with a focus on flow, speed and an engaging world. You are a broken robot that accidentally falls out of a giant cargo ship onto a post-human earth, now inhabited by robots. You have to get back to your ship before it’s too late!
The gravitize engine is used to create a separate gravity around yourself, this is the main source of your speed. Use this in downhills to accelerate. But be careful, using it uphill will slow you down. In addition to this the world is full of different speed boosts such as fuel canisters which you can pick up and use to go faster. These tools enables you to drive through the world, meet strange robots, swing in vines, fly through junkyards and boost your way back to your ship.
