Black Resin is a stylish cinematic pixel art stealth action platformer where you control a shapeshifting inky black creature as it sneaks and kills its way through an exploited war-torn world.
The visual style and gameplay in Black Resin is fondly reminiscent of Amiga era classics like Flashback, Another World and (the original) Prince of Persia. In the game you take control of a strange shape shifting creature that appears to be made out of the same inky black substance that the two warring factions in the world have been fighting over. As you sneak your way through the world you’ll learn more about the history of the world and why you’ve got beef with both of the warring factions.
You’re weak and no use in a straight up fight, but you’re stealthy, you can stick to surfaces and you can squeeze your amorphous body through obstacles. Also, if you approach them without being spotted, you can possess your enemies. This allows you to shoot other enemies and objects and bypass certain security protocols.
The current build of Black Resin is a three level prototype that you can play through in around 20 minutes. It may be early in development but it’s already a very polished experience with high quality pixel art animation, excellent audio design and an engaging story. The level design is particularly creative and you have a nice selection of interesting abilities to deal with any obstacles that come your way. Plus it’s always fun to be the monster for a change! Highly recommended.
