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.””

Steam Big Picture

Over dit 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.

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.

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 really liked the atmosphere, i.e. the music, sound, and visual style. The puzzles are creative and always seem reasonably challenging. I always felt a sense of accomplishment as I played through the game.

Unfortunately, the game has two very frustrating sections that can definitely ruin the experience, so I'll just warn you about them. The second and third numbered puzzles in the mines seem to require that you make the nozzle that lets you create fluro blobs, but there's no indication from the game that you will ever need a certain upgrade in order to progress. You need that nozzle because it lets you shoot fluros through the grates, but there's no hint from the game that you can do that. It's very frustrating if you get stuck and keep trying to shoot green goo through grates, which you're clearly not supposed to really be able to do. Also, on the section with ladders, it turns out that you can use one of the nozzles (the one that propels you a little bit) to make the jumps easier, but the game doesn't really hint very well that you can use that nozzle to do that.

Secondly, for the final part of the game (the accelerator) you should probably just use a walkthrough to figure out what you're supposed to do. The requirements to complete it are very unclear and don't make a lot of sense.

Other than that, the game was one of the most enjoyable puzzle platformers I've played. I'd say I liked it more than games like Braid, Waking Mars, and Fez.

Simply fun. Beautifully designed. To call it one of the best indie titles seems like an injustice. The devs should be very proud of this title!

For the most part, this game features clever puzzle design with interesting fluid mechanics. Story doesn't really add much, but doesn't distract either.

Unfortunately once you reach the final puzzles, the game's mechanics and fluro AI stop following their own rules, and your well thought out solutions fall flat while dumb luck sees you though. That leaves a bit of a sour taste to an otherwise enjoyable game.

If Vessel 2 shows up in the near future and I can get it cheap, I might give it a second chance--but I can't help but feel a little burned by this one.

Excellent puzzle platformer!!!

Really you don't need long reviews. Then again if you do need one, there are many besides mine to read.

I've played countless games (platformers included) since the middle-late 80's, and this is my comment on this game:
"If you don't play this you'll have missed a very unique game of this gerne."

I really didn't find anything wrong with this game. Do yourselves a favor and don't miss this one. If the price is high for you, have it in your wishlist and wait for a sale.

An interesting platformer with some nifty innovations that is brought down by bugs and the annoyance factor inherent in all platformers. Graphics and music are all good. I don't recommend playing this without a controller (it is an absolute nightmare using an mouse and keyboard).

Another excellent Indie game.

You are a scientist who created these creatures called Fluoro's. The assist in operating the town. You get shut out of your lab and must find a way back in. As you go from your lab to the 3 main areas of the game, you discover that the fluoros are evolving and to get past each puzzle and fix each broken machine, u must make use of each different kind of fluoro and goo you find. Each fluoro is made to do a specific task. One is agressive, one hates light, one seeks out light, one must activate switches, and another glows in the dark.

Very inventive game with very unique, fun, and challenging puzzles. Found this game very exciting and mind boggling to play. Very challenging and great game at a great price.

I'd reccommend Vessel to anyone who likes puzzle platformers, however it does have a few flaws.

The biggest flaw is the controls. They're very left-hand-heavy, being essentially those typically used by FPS games. While it does allow you to use the arrow keys for movement it seems like an afterthought, given all the other keys are clustered on the assumption of FPS-style use. While it works fine in a FPS, it doesn't work very well for a platformer, making the platforming a lot harder than it should be. The game itself does not provide a means of remapping the controls either, though it can be done by editing an INI file.

The ending seems a bit lack-lustre to me, though that point is entirely subjective, so there might be some players who find it perfectly adequate.

The visuals are just lovely. It's a pleasure to look at, and it really looks like an evolution of the 2D platformer. For that, and the fluid-based mechanics, the developers should be commended, and you should give them your money if you like this sort of game.
