RETSNOM – Pre-Alpha Demo


RETSNOM is an inventive pixel art puzzle platformer that allows players to break the map, by mirroring sections of the level, and rearranging it on the fly.

The tone of RETSNOM is pretty macabre (there’s a clue in the title), featuring some gory pixel art and a dark storyline that has you breaking into a lab to steal medicine for your daughter, who’s been infected by a zombie virus.  Once you get past the first (tutorial) stage, and some slightly clunky dialogue, RETSNOM opens up into a very clever puzzle platformer, allowing you to flip (or mirror) any section of the game world you like, altering it’s structure and allowing you passage through it.  This mirroring can also affect the game world in other ways as you progress through the game, with fog or the shape of the mirror having pronounced influences on the mirroring effect.

Even in these early stages of development, RETSNOM is an impressive game.  The ability to bend the world to your will is a very cool gameplay mechanic, that rewards experimentation as you make your way through this rather sinister world.
