You've got to stop what you're doing and check Badland out. It's a side-scrolling action adventure game that puts you in control of a small flying creature on a quest that will see it discovering what's going down in its forest. The game's teaser trailer sheds a bit of light on the matter. Surely, all those machine parts and traps weren't there before, right?

What's really exciting about Badland is its vision and its production elements, the latter of which are popping out of the YouTube player for us. On the other hand, its whole "one-touch" control mechanic seems pretty clutch, too. Here's that video, by the way:

Creator Frogmind Games, a new two-man studio composed of RedLynx veterans, says we'll hear more about the game "later this year." We'll definitely be in touch.

    Reminds me a lot of limbo as well. Definitely looks awesome. I love the multiplication of characters and the character get larger when you pick up whatever it is he picked up. Definitely different.

    A mix of Limbo and Loco Roco, nice!
    Even if the subtitle mislead me a little, i personally have a different idea of "action adventure".

    The way you get more clones reminds of that xbla game called " the adventures of p.b. winter bottom" that no one cared about...

  • guitarlife

    This looks fantastic. Only for iPad? Or maybe for the iPhone 5 in the future? ;)

  • Professionalbum

    My question is this an endless runner or like a three star system? Either way it's on the watch list for me.

  • TylerDur10

    Is it only for the iPad

    Looks a lot like Feist, which was the first game I saw in this style.  Then came Nightsky and Limbo and Trundle.  But... it definitely looks cool, and it's been years since Fiest's beta came out (2008!) and there's still no game available, so I guess I'm glad other developers have run with it and added their own twists.

    Hope this is on the iPhone too. Looks mad!

    Hello!

    Thanks for all the feedback!
    Some answers here for you guys. BADLAND will be an universal app and it will be available on iPad, iPhone & iPod touch. And btw, I just played it on iPhone 5 and it runs perfectly and looks great :)

    Beautiful game. I could have watched that video go on for hours. I can't wait for this one.

  • WarMachine

    Reminds me more of Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, cuz of the flying, twisted levels, and art style.
