Gestalt: Steam & Cinder is a narrative-driven 2D pixel art action adventure that draws inspiration from 16-bit and 32-bit classics as you unravel conspiracies and battle robots in a beautifully animated steampunk world.
In Gestalt: Steam & Cinder you follow the story of a skilled fighter called Aletheia, who lives in a large steam-powered city of Canaan – the last bastion of mankind in a world overrun by robots. At the heart of the city there’s an age old conspiracy though, and now Aletheia finds herself starting to unravel it.
Gestalt: Steam & Cinder aims to blend classic action platforming gameplay with an engaging narrative where your decisions can affect your fate (and the fate of others). Along the way you’ll meet interesting characters, complete optional side quests, fight huge bosses and learn new skills (which will aid you in combat and in discovering new areas of the world).
The quality of the pixel art animation in Gestalt: Steam & Cinder is jaw-dropping and it looks like it’s backed it up with an engaging narrative and tight 2D action platformer gameplay. It harkens back to 16/32bit classics, but it also really seems like an evolution of the genre. Sign up for the Alpha to be one of the first to explore its beautiful steampunk world.
