Earlier this year, Sony announced a number of indie titles heading to the PS4. One of them was an interesting roguelike puzzle game called Road Not Taken. At the time, we didn’t know much about it, but now we do.
In a post on the PlayStation Blog, Spry Fox’ Daniel Cook updated players on just what Road Not Taken is exactly. While it would be easy to call it roguelike and be done with it, Cook says it’s a little more complicated than that.
While the point of the game is to create rows of like objects to open a path through the forest, there are a number of obstacles in your way. Each of these obstacles sap your strength and your player character dies upon having all of his strength taken away. Like in all good roguelikes, your death is not the end, however, as you must learn from your mistakes and carry on to do better next time.
Here’s a first look at what you can expect from the gameplay:
