Recensies

““Just like Portal 2, Vessel is about a universally recommended game as can exist. It’s charming, entertaining, stimulating, and a hell of an experience for the price point.””
9/10 – Machinima

““One of the best puzzle games since Little Big Planet or Portal. Yeah, it's that good.””
5/5 – Piki Geek

““Vessel is around a quarter of the price of a AAA game, but it contains more flair and ingenuity than most blockbuster games can muster.””
9/10 – GameSpy

Steam Big Picture

Info over het spel

Levende, vloeibare machines hebben deze wereld van niet te stuiten vooruitgang overspoeld. Het is de rol van hun uitvinder, Arkwright, om de chaos te stoppen die ze veroorzaken. Vessel is een game over een man met de macht om gewone materie tot leven te brengen en alle gevolgen die daaruit voortvloeien.

Belangrijkste kenmerken:

  • Vloeibare Gameplay - Vessel is gebouwd op een geoptimaliseerde vloeibare simulatie met stromend water, kokend lava en stoom, reactieve chemicaliën, gloeiende smurrie, de mysterieuze 'protoplasma' en nog veel meer. Elke vloeistof heeft unieke eigenschappen en kan gemixt worden met andere vloeistoffen voor dramatische effecten.
  • Breng de Vloeistof tot Leven – Heb interactie met 'Fluro' wezens die geheel worden gevormd uit gesimuleerde vloeistof. Elke behoudt de eigenschappen van de vloeistof waarvan ze zijn gemaakt, waardoor ze de mogelijkheid krijgen om te smelten, te hervormen, te absorberen, ontploffen en nog veel meer.
  • Unieke Puzzels – Los puzzels op door het combineren van het unieke gedrag van elk schepsel met de vloeistof waarvan ze zijn gemaakt. Elk aspect van de wereld is fysiek gesimuleerd, waarbij alle puzzels zijn gevestigd in de vloeistofsimulatie. Laat een 'drinker' Fluro vallen en lok hem door te sproeien met smurrie. Maak een 'Dark Fluro' en achtervolg hem met het licht. De vloeistof en de physics zijn geen esthetische aspecten van Vessel, maar vormen de basis van de gameplay.
  • 2D/3D Hybride Kunststijl – Ontdek een wereld van fantastische, gedetailleerde machines en vreemde, wonderlijke omgevingen. De handgetekende 2D texturen, in combinatie met de 3D kaarten, de verlichting en de diepte creëert een unieke, onaardse kijk op de visuals.
  • Verbeter je Uitrusting – Gebruik de mysterieuze protoplasma vloeistof die in de wereld gevonden kan worden om jouw uitrusting te upgraden, waarmee je krachtige nieuwe manieren krijgt om de vloeistof te manipuleren.
  • Jon Hopkins Soundtrack – De game beschikt over een full-length soundtrack van Jon Hopkins, het wonderkind op het gebied van elektronische muziek, internationaal bekend om zijn werk met Brian Eno, Imogen Heap en Coldplay.
  • Volledige spelervaring - Vessel bevat meer dan 10 uur aan inhoud verspreid over meerdere werelden, met verscheidene unieke soorten vloeistoffen en Fluro's.

This is a fantastic puzzle platformer, especially if you love puzzle platformers. You have a backpack which can suck up different colored goo, and the different colored goo has different properties as well as different reactions when they are combined. The puzzles are really fun to work through. And while they aren't really too hard (but just challenging enough), they are fun to explore and try different things. The graphics are also beautiful and the fluid simulation is absolutely amazing. I really enjoyed the theme and the entire world presented, and I would definitely recommend you give this game a try.

Good game. Puzzles are fun but not real difficult. If you are looking for a long term challinging puzzler, look elsewhere. Most people won't be getting agrovated at not being able to solve a certain puzzle. Because of this, you can very easily blow through the game. While there isn't very much content gameplay wise, the game is beautifully done. Everything looks great and the mechanics of the game are fun to play with.

Intro
------
Bought Vessel on the humble bundle store for a couple of quid. Looked like a decent puzzler. Was looking for a game which could run on my laptop. This seemed perfect.

Gameplay
-----------
I played with Xbox 360 controller and it was very responsive. Full controller support i believe. Graphics are nice and colourful. Slightly cartoony and cute but HD. The music was not annoying although i think it looped throughout the game. The fluid mechanics are nice. The difficulty curve is good, starting off with simple puzzles and moving onto more complex ones. Some of them were quite difficult at first, but after a bit of trial and error and sometimes looking at everything from a distance the solution comes forth! Very rewarding feeling on completing the game.

I will look at other games this developer has made as I like his style and enjoyed this game a lot. First game on steam to unlock all achievements too after investing 30 hours on it.

Conlcusion
------------
A very good game overall, i would give it 9/10.

Bugged Achievement (Internal Rejection)?
---------------------------------------------
Some people say one acievement is bugged, the one where you have to create a dark fluro out of green glo goo (Internal Rejection). The achievement is not bugged, you have to put some green and some blue on the floor, then put the dark fluro eye in to start creating the dark fluro, but the trick is to start sucking up a little bit of it as it is being created, if not, it will not sustain itself and explode / die. 50% of each green and blue and then eye and then suck up a bit of the blue so it is more green than blue...... worked it out after 5 mins of trying....

Vessel is a challenging physics-based platform puzzler. The puzzles are pleasantly difficult, and it features an attractive steampunk aesthetic.

The gameplay in Vessel is mostly about using giant steampunk factory machines and manipulating creatures made out of water (and later, other materials) into doing your bidding. Some creatures are dangerous, but death isn’t a major obstacle in Vessel; it just resets the current challenge.

What makes Vessel so fun to play, though, is the wonderful sloshy water mechanics. It's really fun to splash through this game. The level design is creative, and the puzzles are thoughtfully made.

If you like puzzlers, Vessel is definitely worth a look. It's creative, polished, entertaining, and difficult. It's a bit pricey at $15, but look for a sale.

I had a really hard time understanding Vessel for the first few hours. The fluro storyline makes this a daftly weird game. However, after struggling through the initial learning curve, Vessel turned into a decent puzzle platformer. The different fluid combinations and eyeballs types make for some interesting gameplay. Basically you use fluros to stand on buttons, engage switches, explode, or create steam by shooting water at lava fluros enabling some machinery to open a door. Then, later on in the game, there are much more interesting fluros offering new elements that keep the puzzles fresh. Overall, a good challenge and a fun experience.
