forma.8Dig into your memory banks, all the way back to E3 in June 2012, and developer Mixed Bag announced a new iOS action-adventure game called Forma.8. We got a brief demo of Forma.8 at that show, and its striking visuals and atmosphere really caught our attention. I'd describe the visual style as Badland meets Another World. The following January, Mixed Bag released a trailer for the game, but things went sort of silent after that. Then this past October, Mixed Bag resurfaced to release some new screens and let everyone know that Forma.8 was still in the works but no firm release date was in sight. Well, today we've gotten word that Forma.8 is still alive and well, and now it's a multi-platform title. There is also a new trailer which you can check out here.

Forma.8 continues to look better and better every time I see it, and I'm still anxious as ever to get my hands on it. As for platforms, it'll be coming to iOS of course, PS4, PSVita, Wii U, PC, Mac and Linux. It's also up for approval on Steam Greenlight. Unfortunately, there's still no solid release date for Forma.8, but Mixed Bag will be showing off the title at the EGX Rezzed convention at the end of March. It sounds like it's just about complete, so here's to hoping it's not too long of a wait until we can dive into its mysterious world.

      And Badland enjoyed the art of Limbo. So that makes it a clone of a clone mixed with something varying, depending on who you talk to.

      This game was announced a year before Badland was released.

    • thiagovscoelho

      this seems to just be inspired by Another World in some manner

  • Mr. Gamer

    It looked like Badlands mixed with Waking Mars.

      Spot on,sir.

  • ImJPaul

    This game looks real neat. It makes total sense to release it for iOS and PC because that's it's demographic. Unfortunately, console gamers probably aren't going to appreciate this because there's no tits/gore.

      Wow, elitist much?

  • InkyTheGhost

    The old trailer made me feel excited. Now this trailer makes me feel impatient.

  • imcookie

    Wow that looks JIZZ-TASTIC!! I really hope they include the music they used in the trailer. Hello devs (Mixed Bag) did you hear that?

  • DenzilofDojima

    Insanely twisted shadow planet meets pixel junk shooter?

  • Inaba-kun

    The devs are clearly BIG fans of Pixeljunk Shooter.
