Macrotis: A Mother's Journey is a platformer enriched with elements of adventure and logic games. The titles was developed by an independent Turkish studio Proud Dinosaurs.
Macrotis: A Mother's Journey takes place in a fairy-tale-like forest. When it fell victim to a catastrophic flooding, most of the animals living there went in search of a new home. During the game we play as the eponymous mother - a rodent named Bilba - who decided not to take such a step because of her three small children. Soon afterwards, her choice brought disappointing results, as the water entered her hiding place, separating Bilba from her little ones. The protagonist must now make every effort to return to her children as soon as possible.
In Macrotis: A Mother's Journey the action is shown from the side. In the course of the game, we travel through picturesque locations and overcome various obstacles, such as difficult terrain requiring jumping from platform to platform, as well as various environmental puzzles, the solving of which opens up access to other places. In order to solve the puzzles, we have to interact with objects or use the magical (but not only) abilities of the protagonist. Bilba can not only dig underground tunnels or move stones, but also penetrate walls, and even teleport at short distances.
At every step, however, we should be on our guard, because the game is characterized by high level of difficulty - numerous traps make it very easy to lose life. However, a system of checkpoints has been implemented, thanks to which our character is reborn just before a given obstacle. In addition, a wide variety of collectibles containing additional information about the game world encourage us to look through each nook and cranny.
Macrotis: A Mother's Journey uses 2.5D visuals. The colourful, cartoonish style adopted by the game evokes associations with the popular Trine series.
