    Hey team! We've got a new one coming out, and it's totally uncharted territory. The game is called Staying Together. It launches for free on February 12th, just in time for Valentines Day... a holiday befitting of the game's theme!

    Staying Together is a puzzle platformer with an unusual mechanic. You control two characters simultaneously...a "Multi-Character Puzzle Platformer" if you will :). When one moves left, the other moves right. When one jumps, the other jumps. The goal is to get them to both a meeting point, but not before collecting the heart pieces scattered about each level. The game will be free with one single $1.99 IAP to unlock the later worlds. Tons of credit to the extraordinarily talented Matthew Holtzem who collaborated with us on this project!

    Since this is all very new for us, we are excited for you to give it a try. Promo codes available to those who ask below. We have the IAP set to free for now, so anyone with a promo code can get the full game :)


    This Valentines Day, celebrate love and loyalty with Staying Together. A mystical journey awaits you in this multi-character puzzle platformer.

    Control two lovers simultaneously in your quest to unite them. Looking out for the needs of a single character won’t get you far, as these inexorable companions move in unison. Only careful planning and cooperation can overcome the obstacles that divide this duo!

    Explore gorgeous, hand-crafted environments loaded with obstacles, traps, and collectibles.

    After playing just the first 5 levels, I can comfortably report that this game is brilliant and a lot of fun. The controls are simple (3 screen sectors using touch), but still a bit mind bending as the two characters move horizontally in opposing directions, so you need to be focused. Already some very clever puzzle mechanics are present. I have played a few games with similar concepts before, but this seems pretty unique. To me, it is amazing how many great games released lately and here is yet another.

    There looks to be an occasional advertisement. Is this going to be free with IAP for removing ads or unlocking levels? Whatever it is, I will support it with a purchase. Thanks again for the code, Naquatic!

    This IS a different game for you guys, love the art style and the game concept. Ever since that Pixar paper airplane short Ive always tried to wrap my head around designing a game that plays with and builds on the concept of love.. You really have another winner here, guys!

    Thanks for the prerelease code! This game is a really highly polished puzzler. The graphics have a really nice style to them. I also like not having to achieve 3 stars for a perfect level but rather the 3 pieces of a heart. It's a nice simple change if you ask me. Controls work great and are really simple. Only thing that's not simple is wrapping my head around the "mirror" gameplay. But that's on me! :)
    I think this is a great direction for a very different game from your sports games! Hope you get lots of success (but don't forget your sports roots!) :)

    Naquatic,

    How does the promo code work if the game is scheduled to be released as a freemium title with IAP?

    Love the art style and the relaxing ambiance. How tough are the platforming challenges? Is it more a puzzle game than platform game? Or vice versa (like Thomas Was Alone)? Are there any timed challenges (not a fan of them) in this game?

    You guys have great game going here! Like how the music keeps going between levels.. This game has tons of long term potential, I think, too... More level packs, variations on gameplay, etc. I also think it has some of your best chances to get big recognition, it's really a tight experience.

    ...also, have you guys watched Parks and Recreation? Cuz the characters sure seems like Ron Swanson and Leslie Knope :D

    Early Impressions

    The game is really good! Challenging, yet total fun. You can expect high quality NAquatic style, with fun and addicting gameplay. It will rattle your brain, in a good way. Highly polished and with a IAP model that is fair (IAP to unlock more levels).

    I am thankful for receiving a code and I must say, much different from Naquatic's past releases. A great direction for Naquatic and starting off strong as always.

    Highly recommend, especially for puzzle fans. Btw, love the art work too!
