““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

Tietoja pelistä

Elävät nestekoneet ovat valloittaneet tämän pysäyttämättömän kehityksen maailman, ja on niiden keksijän, Arkwrightin rooli pysäyttää niiden aiheuttama kaaos. Vessel on peli miehestä, jolla on voima tuoda jokapäiväinen tarkoitus elämälle seurauksineen.

Avaintietoja:

  • Nestepeli - Vessel perustuu pitkälti optimaalisoituun nesteiden simulointiin, johon kuuluu esimerkiksi virtaava vesi, polttavan kuuma laava ja höyry, reagoivat kemikaalit, hohtava mönjä, ja salaperäinen 'protoplasma'. Joka nesteellä on omat uniikit ominaisuutensa ja nesteitä sekoittamalla voi saavuttaa vaikuttavia efektejä.
  • Herätä neste eloon – Ole vuorovaikutuksessa 'Fluro'-olentojen kanssa. Ne koostuvat kokonaan nesteestä. Jokainen niistä säilyttää sen nesteen ominaisuudet, josta ne on tehty antaen niille kyvyn esimerkiksi sulaa, muodostua uudelleen, imeä tai räjähtää.
  • Uniikkeja arvoituksia – Ratkaise arvoituksia yhdistämällä joka olennon uniikkia käyttäytymistä nesteeseen josta ne on tehty. Pelimaailman jokainen kuvakulma on fyysisesti simuloitu, ja kaikki arvoitukset perustuvat nesteiden simulointiin. Pudota 'Juoma'-Fluro ja houkuttele sitä mönjäruiskeella. Luo 'Pimeä'-Fluro ja jahtaa sitä valolla. Nesteet ja fysiikat eivät luo pelkästään Vesselin estetiikkaa, vaan myös vahvan perustan pelimaailmalle.
  • 2D/3DHybridi taidetyyli – Tutustu fantastiseen maailmaan, jossa on yksityiskohtaisia koneita ja omituisia, hämmästyttäviä ympäristöjä. 2D käsinpiirretty tuntuma yhdistettynä 3D-karttoihin, valaistukseen, ja syvyyksiin, jotka luovat pelille kuin toisesta maailmasta olevan ulkonäön.
  • Päivitä varustuksesi – Käytä salaperäistä protoplasmanestettä, jota löytyy maailmasta, päivittääksesi varusteitasi saavuttaen uusia voimakkaita tapoja manipuloida nesteitä.
  • Jon Hopkins Soundtrack – Mukana tulee myös täysipitkä soundtrack elektronisen musiikin ihmeeltä, Jon Hopkinsilta, joka on kansainvälisesti kuuluisa työstään Brian Enon, Imogen Heapin ja Coldplayn kanssa.
  • Koko pelin kokemus - Vessel tarjoaa sisältöä yli kymmeneksi tunniksi monien maailmojen väliltä tuoden mukanaan useita uniikkeja nesteitä ja Fluroja.

Quite interesting game. Visuals and audio are nice. Puzzles neither very complex nor plain - it's surely possible to solve them on your own after a bit of thought. Gameplay isn't as exciting as it could be to make you dive into playing non-stop but still easily attracts you for an hour or two every day. Technically stable software. P.S. You don't need to get all the available upgrades to complete it.

A timing/logic puzzle game with a steampunk flavor. I picked it up in a summer bundle, tried it, found the puzzles too bland to hold my interest.

With its quirky visual style, I really wanted to like this one, but terrible controller lag, in what is just another switch-flipping game means I'll pass.

I played this for many hours outside of Steam, and am just now trying to catch up to where I left off. The story is great, and the puzzles are a good combo of difficulty/fun/creativity. I played this mostly with a mouse and keyboard initially, and actually found it much easier to control through this way, rather than using a game controller.

Good game but don't buy it full price! Nice idea, cute design but it can be very frustating sometimes. it's not really difficult to find the solutions of the puzzles but it may need the very right timing which can be sometimes tricky (and exhausting if you have to do it over and over again). And sometimes you succeed with a bit of luck because the creatures you don't control do as you want. Half price seems fair.

Vessel - Fresh take on puzzles

For me it was really refreshing experience in terms of solving puzzles. But there is much more than just puzzles to this games and in this review I'll try to explain myself.
It all starts in a lab with a very nice introduction to the story about the engineer that has invented a way to control the behavior of the liquid and then realized the potential of his invention. To make it easier for me I will tell that with that invention you can turn liquid into a living creature that can follow basic commands. But as with any inventions there are potential issues. And those issues started in the very lab they were invented.

And that were the learning curve starts, gradually. It's not very steep to turn me off right away and not to gradual to make me feel the game thinks I'm an idiot. The game definitely knows what it wants to be and tell that to you in the right way.
After playing for about 1 minute I was completely into it and I knew I was not going to bed before I complete it.

I think it is quite easy to ruin the game with a review spoiler so I will try to stay away from solving puzzles and just talk about what I loved about the game in no particular order.
So the first think I loved in this game are the Fluros, those creatures made of liquid using the invention I mentioned earlier. I felt that the protagonist has emotional bond with them and I started to feel that. You will probably too when you get into the game. There will be a variety of them and they will have unique abilities so you will have a lot to tinker about as the game progresses.

Then there's graphics. From what you can see on the screenshots it's nothing fancy but there's charm to it. And for me that means more than anything. Believe me I recently played games that are 20 years old. So back to Vessel and it's graphics. It's an amazing blend of 2D and 3D that give the characters that unique look.

Then there's music which I only started paying attention to after I learned the basics. The soundtrack is very immersive and it perfectly fits any given location or situation. I was sitting there on the couch with my headset on and enjoying the flow of sounds to my ears.
The controls. The first thing I noticed were the clues on how to use switches and other things it was great and I didn't really need any manual or even look at the control scheme in the settings. I was playing with a gamepad and I didn't turn of the rumble because I didn't even open control settings. And that was a good thing. Because unlike games where the gamepad ruble is more like a jackhammer that makes your entire body to shake. In this game it's gentle and just makes you feel the feedback from the environment in just the right way.

Gameplay is liquid. Yes, almost all you do involves liquid one way or another. It plays and feels so unique and I really don't remember any other game that was anything like it. Not that I played too many games but I played enough to say that for myself.

And now, upgrades. It doesn't make the game any less difficult but it makes solving puzzles more convenient. And wanting to upgrade your equipment makes you solve optional puzzles and I love optional puzzles and missions.

Last but definitely not least I'd like to tease you with a paragraph about the bosses. This being a puzzle game it will make you think how to approach every single one of them and the same tactics will not work. In my opinion everyone who plays puzzle games should complete the game just to appreciate the final boss and final puzzle. I can only assume how much thought went into making those and how satisfying it was to complete the game.

Remember I wrote earlier that I planned to complete it that night? Not a chance. It took me 20 hours and it was worth every second I spent. And every penny to. Not that I spent to much during the sale but I would have bought it right away if I know what I know now.

So pick it up sometime and enjoy!

I played this, then for an LP, then a few years later for the final achievements.
This game is majestic and wonderful and I'm kinda heartbroken there is no sequel.
The world, thin as it is, feels like something I want to explore more of. The Fluro are cute, exciting yet something to be respected. The puzzles are clever and sometimes amazing. It's sad that most upgrades are superfluous, especially since they feel like they could be used in exciting ways if the world just let it.
And the environments. Gorgeous. Beautiful lighting, painterly landscapes, a steampunk aesthetics that even I, not a huge steampunk fanatic, can drool over.

Vessel has a special place in my heart.
It's not a long game, depending on your puzzle skills.
But it's a truly wonderful game either way.
If you're a cheapskate, get it on sale. But trust me, it'll stick with you.

Vessel is a really neat physics based puzzle platformer with the primary mechanics revolving around fluids and these cute little fluid creatures that each have specific AI depending on the material they’re made of.

I admit, because it’s an indie puzzle platformer this game sat around on my metaphorical steam shelf and collected dust for quite a long time. I don’t enjoy these types of games and I tend to find them overly frustrating or convoluted for the most part. Vessel certainly is not a cake walk by any means, and there were a few moments when I felt like progress was impossible, but it was nice because the reason I was having trouble was simply because I lacked a tool that I had not unlocked yet. The puzzles made me think but did not feel ridiculous or malicious, being able to progress through the game at a moderate pace really made the whole title so much more enjoyable.

I didn’t complete the entire game, but it was not for a lack of enjoyment or a spike in frustration. Vessel is a wonderful game and deserves to stand out amongst the other physics puzzle platformers.

Publisher: Strange Loop Games
Developer: Indie Pub
Platform: PC
Controls: Full Controller Support

Vessel is a fluid based puzzle-platformer in which you play as M. Arkwright, an inventor who created an automaton called a Fluro. They were created to help out with laborious tasks which they can perform better than humans. Only problem is they start evolving and running amok so you need to go through the world of Vessel to fix what they have broken.

To help you out in the game you get a liquid gun with a tank attached to it. You can either spray liquid or suck it into it. It’s also upgradeable with different nozzle tips and larger tanks. With this and the Fluros you will be able to complete the puzzles throughout the world.

You’ll play through three different areas where you will need to repair machinery that the Fluros have broken. The levels consist of a factory, orchard, and mines. Through these levels you will discover new types of Fluro that you can use. You also need to capture each type which will then give you a seed. The seeds can be thrown on the grown and spray with liquid to form whichever Fluro it is. These vary from ones that like to press switches, chase you, collect liquid till they pop, hide from light, or go to the light.

The puzzles in the game are challenging and fun to do. I had a few that really made me think but the fun was in discovering how to get the different Fluros to work for you. The story also wasn’t too bad and did add a little to the game but it was really all about the puzzles. Overall Vessel is a fun challenging puzzle game to play and should not be missed.

Bear Pros:
Great liquid physics
Fun challenging puzzles
Fluro characteristics

Bear Cons:
Somewhat lackluster ending
Only three areas to explore
Needs more of these great puzzles (not really a con)

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....

The game is... okay.

It has decent and quite creative puzzles, plenty of hints that build up the puzzles, the control is quite responsive, and there's actually some sort of story that draws me in. The visual isn't really up to my taste, but eh, may be other people will find it just fine.

For me there are 2 problems with the game. The first one is that there's some sort of upgrade system that actually has no use. Nothing really gets easier by unlocking the upgrade, you can't get faster or die harder with the upgrades.

The other problem is I find the number of puzzles quite lacking. There are maybe... 25 main puzzles here (could be 35-40 if you count the tutorial puzzles). I was seriously surprised when the game ends, I thought it's just mid way, especially since I haven't used the upgrades at all.

All in all, I'd put down "neutral" score if I can, there are plenty of other games on Steam.

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.
