Fracter is an upcoming isometric puzzle game set for release later this summer. It’s the debut title from studio 4L Games, and it looks set to be an intensely atmospheric experience.
Completely black and white, Fracter will see players take control of a young hero on a quest to dispel the darkness within a mysterious labyrinth. They do this by solving puzzles and trying to outsmart the game’s various creatures using only the power of light — something that seems to be seriously lacking in the game’s world.
4L says the game features meticulously crafted puzzles, an eerie soundtrack, and a “poetic, self-reflective narrative.”
It certainly looks eerie: the way the main character skips in the GIF below while being trailed by a crawling, spider-like creature is genuinely unsettling. We’ll have to wait to a later date to confirm that it plays as good as it looks.
All we know about a release date is that it is expected to come at some point this summer. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as soon as we get any more info about it.
