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.

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)

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.

Very interesting game with nice, but not optimized water physics, which made my computer lag sometimes in case of complexity of the game...maybe my PC is that bad or it's just the game...stopped playing this after couple of hours, but anyway i strongly recommend checking it!

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.
