You're glued to the floor in 2D platformer Dandara

Audio player loading…

The titular protagonist of 2D Metroidvania platformer Dandara (opens in new tab) is glued to the floor. Admittedly, I don't know if it's actually glue, but I'll be damned if it doesn't look like it. That might sound like a pretty big problem for the protagonist of a platformer, but two-man Brazil-based developer Long Hat House (opens in new tab) has worked out a clever solution: bouncing.

In lieu of traditional jumps, Dandara bounces between specific surfaces using a billiards-like shot system. "Defy gravity as you jump across floors, walls and ceilings alike," its Steam page reads. Judging from an impressive thread of GIFs publisher Raw Fury shared on Twitter (opens in new tab), Dandara can also string bounces together to get around the game's world—the "directionless" world of Salt, that is—more quickly. 

Dandara will release on Tuesday, February 6, 2018. In the meantime, have a gander at a few of the best GIFs from that Twitter thread:
