The Square Enix Collective platform allows players to support a project before it goes on the market.
Effie is a 3D action-adventure game with platforming, combat and puzzles mechanics. It tells the story of a man who, cursed by a witch to be old, will seek a way to regain his youth. During the adventure, he will find all kinds of difficulties and he will have a powerful magical shield as a travelling companion.
It’s being developed for PlayStation 4 console by Inverge Studios, a small Spanish studio that is now in partnership with PlayStation®Talents, a program which promotes indie game studios under the PlayStation® brand.
Effie has been selected this week to participate in the Square Enix®Collective platform. This is a division of Square Enix®, where they choose an indie game once a week, so they can give them visibility. In the platform, players have the chance to support the project as well as to ask for changes and provide new ideas of improvement to the developers. It will be available until October 17th.
The game will have nice and simple graphics, while the gameplay is based on the classic PlayStation 2 games. Therefore, it will try to evoke nostalgic feelings, but with renewed and modernized graphics, controls and gameplay.
The campaign is available for 28 days.
