Description

Cerulean Moon is a jumpless platformer. In this game you don't move the main character directly, but instead use your finger to slide the world under the main character's feet. This control scheme allows for great expressiveness and has significant gameplay implications, making the game feel like a platformer even though there’s no jump button.

History

We wanted to make a platformer which could only be played on a touchscreen device. Control systems can be a compelling source of gameplay innovation when they guide the design process, and our love for platformers made us explore various prototypes in this direction. We finally arrived at a precise and expressive control system which is now at the core of Cerulean Moon.

Features

  • Tight controls designed for touch.
  • Can be played on a trackball or spinner controller.
  • Makes use of the unique touch capabilities in the Steam Controller and Dual Shock 4.
  • A platformer with a compelling twist.
