Degrees of Separation, a puzzle game written by Chris Avellone, is out tomorrow

Modus Games' co-op puzzle platformer, Degrees of Separation, has a launch trailer to celebrate its release tomorrow.

Written by Chris Avellone, the game stars two characters called Ember and Rime. Ember's world is warm; Rime's is icy. Both character's elements can be used individually to solve puzzles or navigate the path ahead, and it they can merge their powers to create 'controllable gusts of wind, frozen rivers, secret passageways.' You can get a good look at how it works in the trailer above.

Degrees of Separation can be played alone—you'll get to control both characters separately when solving a puzzle—or in co-op multiplayer. A co-op trailer was released last month if you want to see what it might look like to play through with a friend.

Degrees of Separation is set for release tomorrow. In the meantime, why not have a read of our interview with Chris Avellone where he told us why he decided to write a platformer, rather than another RPG.

Sarah's earliest gaming memories involve playing Jet Set Willy on the ZX Spectrum at a friend's house. These days, and when not writing guides, most of her spare time goes into MMOs—though she's quite partial to JRPGs too. She has spent much of the last decade playing the likes of Star Wars: The Old Republic, TERA, Final Fantasy 14, and World of Warcraft. Sarah has been writing about games for several years and, before joining PC Gamer, freelanced for the likes of TechRadar, GamingBible, and Rock Paper Shotgun. One of her fondest hopes is to one day play through the ending of Final Fantasy X without breaking down into a sobbing heap. She probably has more wolves in Valheim than you.
