Recensioni

““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

Informazioni sul gioco

Delle macchine a base di un liquido vivente hanno invaso questo mondo di progresso senza limiti, e spetta al loro inventore, Arkwright, fermare il caos che stanno provocando. Vessel è un gioco su un uomo con il potere di portare ordinaria materia in vita, e tutte le conseguenze che ne derivano.

Elementi chiave:

  • Gameplay a base di fluidi - Vessel è costruito a partire da un simulatore di fluidi ottimizzato che permette lo scorrere di acqua, lava bollente e vapore, reagenti chimici, melma luminescente, il misterioso 'protoplasma' e molto altro ancora. Ogni liquido ha proprietà uniche e si mescola con gli altri generando effetti spettacolari.
  • Porta i liquidi in vita – Interagisci con le creature 'Fluro' formate interamente da fluidi simulati. Ognuna conserva le proprietà del liquido di cui è fatta, donandole la possibilità di sciogliere, ricomporsi, assorbire, esplodere e molto altro.
  • Enigmi unici – Risolvi gli enigmi combinando i comportamenti unici di ogni creatura con il liquido di cui è fatta. Ogni elemento dell'ambiente è una simulazione fisica, e tutti gli enigmi sono basati sulla simulazione dei fluidi. Libera un 'Fluro Bevitore' e attiralo diffondendo melma. Crea un 'Fluro Oscuro' e allontanalo con la luce. Fluidi e fisica non sono un'aggiunta estetica in Vessel, ma piuttosto la base di tutto il gameplay.
  • Stile artistico misto di 2D e 3D – Esplora un mondo di fantastiche e dettagliate macchine e strani e incantevoli ambienti. Le texture 2D disegnate a mano combinate con normali mappe, luci e profondità in 3D creano visuali uniche e mistiche.
  • Potenzia il tuo equipaggiamento – Usa il misterioso liquido protoplasmatico trovato negli ambienti di gioco per potenziare il tuo equipaggiamento, ottenendo nuovi potenti modi di manipolare i liquidi.
  • Colonna sonora di Jon Hopkins – E' inclusa una traccia audio completa del prodigio della musica elettronica Jon Hopkins, conosciuto a livello internazionale per le sue collaborazioni con Brian Eno, Imogen Heap e i Coldplay.
  • Esperienza di gioco completa - Vessel include oltre 10 ore di contenuti tra vari mondi, con tipi di liquidi e Fluro unici.

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.

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)

I love this game

It is an amazing physics puzzler that reminds me of the oddworld games.

You control a scientist that can make little critters out of different types of liquids, they all do different things and they react to eachother in different ways (sometimes explosively) and you use them to solve puzzles, you also have a gun that squirts and sucks up different liquids, and the liquids are simulated brilliantly.

The game doesn't have tutorials in the strictest sense but you are always being taught new ways to use your critters and liquids and you are constantly unlocking new things to do.

Buy this game if you don't already own it.

This is a 2D puzzle platformer with a Victorian era Steampunk setting. You have discovered how to animate water and an industrial revolution occurred because of it. But now your animated “Fluros” are acting a bit off and you've got to fix them.

While I didn't find the puzzles to be very difficult, I Still enjoyed the game. There is a kind of laid back feel to the game and completing the puzzles still gave a feeling of accomplishment. I've come to expect excellent music from indie games and the soundtrack is pretty good here. Wish a soundtrack came with the Bundle. While the controls are clunky; It only affected a small part of the game. The main character kind of reminded me of a puppet on strings, For some reason.

Nothing too taxing, but a pretty decent game.

I like this game. The puzzles are easy, except near the end where things start to get a bit more complicated.

You can see that this is game received a lot of love from the development studio. The graphics of the game are very detailed and artistically beautiful, with a mix of 2D and 3D, and some good water physics.

The music is pretty good if you ask me, but of course that allways comes to personal preference.

There really isn't exactly an in-depth story, but you do read the notes from the main character's journal, and explore his personality, and the story comes in form of events and changes in the small water-robots and environment.

Overall, a very nice game. I recommend!

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.
