game release date for PC:
Noita is a roguelike game developed by independent developer Nolla Games, a team of three developers who have previously worked on games such as Crayon Physics Deluxe, The Swapper and Environmental Station Alpha.
In Noita, the plot plays a supporting role. During the gameplay, we play the role of a magician who travels through the gloomy dungeon and confronts the dangers lurking there.
In the course of the adventure, we observe the action from the side, exploring locations and eliminating enemies. The protagonist uses a wide range of elemental spells, which he expands as he progresses. The spells enable him not only to kill enemies but also to manipulate the game world, which often enables him to reach inaccessible places. By evoking a rainy cloud, we can fill a depression with water, carrying the hero upwards; by cooling hot lava, we make it solid, creating a passage to the other side of the hot lake; and by firing fire bullets into stalactites, we tear them away from the ceiling, dropping them directly on the heads of the opponents.
It is worth remembering that the devs decided to implement permadeath mechanics, so there is nothing else left for us after death, but to start the struggle from scratch. The matter is further complicated by the fact that individual locations are generated procedurally, which means that during each playthrough we face different challenges.
In comparison to other games, whose visuals were made in pixel art technique, Noita stands out because each pixel here is a separately animated object subject to the laws of physics, which entails the aforementioned possibilities of interaction with the environment.
