PAX 2016: Check Out ‘Neilos’, a 2.5D Puzzler

Hidden away in the corner of the 6th floor show room was a really cool puzzle platformer of sorts called Neilos. Your whole goal is to find water, but the way you do it is super clever and reminds me a lot of if a game like Paper Mario leaned way more heavily on the puzzler side of things, as you can similarly shift the perspective to find other paths that might not have been totally apparent from your current perspective.

Neilos is in alpha right now, and they’re hoping to release the game inside of six months or so. Be sure to add it to your watch list if you’re also into these kind of perspective shifting games.
