A strange trailer came across our desks here at TouchArcade today, and caught our attention. The trailer is for a game called Barmark, the first project by Swedish developer Stormhatt Studios. So what is Barmark? I… don’t know. It’s classified as a point-and-click adventure, but with “no goals, no points and no death." Sound strange? I thought so too. The developer provides a bit more cryptic description: “Wander through stunning landscapes; immerse yourself within the amazing visuals and sounds of nature. Find harmony by forging your own environments, creating worlds to achieve personal perfection. Experience the calming world, and alter it to your liking." Check out the trailer.
The visuals and music definitely set a haunting mood in Barmark, and it gives me a heavy Sword & Sworcery vibe. I’m really intrigued by the thought of no goals, and simply changing around the environment to “achieve harmony and personal perfection" as Stormhatt puts it. Barmark is set for a spring release barring any sort of complications, and I’m more than a little interested to get my hands on it and see what it’s all about.
