About This Game

Be the first to change gravity and solve hard deadly puzzles in Attractio! Control the 3 contestants: Dalek, Mia and Keir, who compete to win the controversial reality show. You will need dexterity and cleverness to pass throughout the challenging levels. Are you up for the challenge?


Men and women risk their lives in live TV, desperate for a better life. Millions of inhabitants of the Solar System look forward to the new season of Attractio. The reality show where contestants solve deadly puzzles; so deadly in fact, there’s only one way they can leave there with their lives: to win.

This season: Keir, a man with a humble origin, looks for the monetary prize. Mia, a policewoman from mars, wants to take home the advanced technology prize. Dalek, a dangerous criminal, plays to win his freedom back. Each one will have to solve different deadly puzzles using different gadgets that will allow them to manipulate gravity.

Attractio takes place in the amazing Entertainment Space Station (ESS), an artificial satellite orbiting Mars. This station was created specifically to broadcast Attractio, being the only place that meets the requirements to host the games of the gravity manipulation. As usual, Darius will be the host of this exciting reality show.


Attractio is the first person shooter where you will be able to manipulate the gravity direction of different objects which, in turn, will make you rethink your expectations about physics. The implications of these slight changes of the laws of physics are considerable enough to allow you to solve each room in a variety of ways: your imagination and dexterity will be your greatest tools. Nevertheless, you’ll be facing some of the most challenging puzzles you’ve ever come across.

Throughout the game, you’ll play as the contestants of the reality show, Mia, Keir and Dalek, each one with different puzzles and gadgets designed for their particular abilities.

Mia: The most renowned detective of Mars will use gravity boots that will test her physical abilities and allowing her to change her own gravity so she can avoid the deadliest traps of Attractio.

Keir: From the poorest region of the Solar System, Keir will use the Shifter gun in Attractio which will allow him to manipulate the gravity direction of certain objects in Attractio.

Dalek: The ruthless criminal who will try to win his freedom back in Attractio, using both the gravity boots and the shifter gun inside the most complex rooms of Attractio.

¿Who will emerge victorious? In order to get to know them you will uncover their controversial pasts and save them from a certain death in Attractio, the most watched reality show in the Solar System.

I wasn't entirely sure what to expect out of this but this is actually a good first person puzzler. The voice overs will either annoy you or make you laugh with how unabashedly cheesey they are, the art design is quite good, and the mechanics are, as far as I've seen to this point (about 3 chambers in) solidly designed. Picked it up for $2 on sale but I can see why they're asking $20 for it.

Attractio is hands down the best puzzle game I have played since the portal games, except with more variety when it comes to solving puzzles.

Ok puzzle game with a few "someone has made a mistake, this level is imposible"-moments, don't play it for the story, and don't expect an epic portal-style finish

Attractio is a game where you play as three contestants in a controversial reality show. As you progress through the levels (spaceship) you are faced with many puzzles and death situations in which you must use your brains to escape/pass the puzzle.

Positives:
+ Graphics are really nice
+ Cut scenes are really in-depth and have great detail behind them
+ Audio really adds to the atmosphere
+ Challenge mode to test your skill
+ Beautiful lighting effects

Negatives:
- Controller does not seem to work on the main menu
- Sometimes I could get stuck on a puzzle and it would get me a little annoyed. (Maybe there could be a hint system in future for the easier modes?)
- Game can take a long time to load

I had a lot of fun on Attractio. Fans of Portal would definitely love this game too. I happened to get stuck often though and it really did challenge me to use my brain (what I have left of it) – I would most definitely recommend this to gamers seeking a challenge and a game which is pretty in-depth with the cutscenes and story. The game also has a challenge mode in which you can go over the levels you completed and try to beat the times for Gold, Silver or Bronze respectively.

I feel the price is fair but it may sway a few individuals. For the majority I recommend a purchase. If you feel the price may be too steep then I would definitely recommend waiting for a sale. This game is definitely worth a purchase down the line though.

Score: Buy it

Oooh. I played it for about an hour and a half and it was off to such a good start. Very satisfying puzzles with some of those same sorts of kinetic elements like Portal. But three strikes killed my interest in playing it any further:

1. This game is guilty of "Quantum Conundrum" syndrome. It starts off great, but then the puzzles start to veer more and more into a type of puzzle where you have to execute a very specific sequence of action-oriented events in a very specific order, timed perfectly, or else you instantly die. Why is it that every game that tries to imitate Portal is full of these timing-based death gauntlets? Anyway, every time you insta-die, you have to go back and position all the blocks into all of the right places over and over again, which gets pretty tedious. This sort of thing really grates away my patience at an extreme rate. Maybe you are more patient than me.

2. The VO. First of all, it's terrible and constant. Second of all, you absolutely can't turn it off or turn the volume down. Third, this is one of those games that thinks it's really cool/funny to taunt and make fun of the player every time they die or fall for some cheap trap. Much like grading jokes are only funny to teachers, player death jokes are only funny to designers. Don't do it. Finally, the VO that plays when you first enter a chamber will play over again every time you die, so you get to listen to the same terrible VO making fun of you for experimenting over and over again like a broken record.

3. Some jank. For example: If you put a cube in a doorway and then let the door close, the falling door will destroy the cube. But sometimes if a cube just touches a door as its moving past, the door will "destroy" the cube through the power of EXISTING NEARBY.

I fully admit that as a player I am extremely impatient. While I like being challenged, I have a pretty low tolerance (no tolerance?) for being harrassed and/or hassled. While this game does have some really satisfying challenge in the puzzle department, the harassment and hassle kinda killed it for me.

A great puzzle game with more than one dimension!
I enjoyed the puzzles, and I enjoyed the fact that there was a story to the game.
The challenge modes add some replayability to the whole thing, just a shame there is no leaderboards to see who is quickest! :)

Positives!
- Enjoyable puzzles
- Good controls
- Good characters
- Storyline

Negatives
- Slow loading times
- I did not care much for the character voices
- Nor did I care much for the music
- No slider for Voice Volume

Edit: I was made aware that there is in fact leaderboards! So, another plus for the game.

Attractio is a puzzle-platformer in the same vein as games like Q.U.B.E. and Magrunner.

The mechanics involve gravity manipulation and are easy to understand, but the game's physics engine allows you to perform some unique techniques with them. The majority of puzzles are solved by requiring you to discover a gravity technique that you haven't yet learned or needed to use, and I enjoyed that kind of exploratory-based puzzle solving.

It's a pretty short game at around 10 hours, with some added value in terms of the challenge mode, but the slick presentation, story, and uniqueness of its puzzles makes Attractio worth the purchase.

LOVE PUZZLES? - Buy this game!

Imagine if QUBE & Portal had a baby. Now imagine that it grew up to be a conniving, sadistic, evil Gameshow Host. Then you have Attractio. These puzzles get HARD, in most games I dance through chambers with ease, but no, not in Attractio.

"Here, have a cube" says Attractio, "Cube press buttons"
"Okay, easy"
"Coloured buttons affect all things of that colour"
"Waaaaay ahead of you Atrractio"
"Oh, really?" Attractio sneers, with an evil glint in it's eye. "Try this on for size!"
And from there you're hit with a barrage of absolutely brilliant puzzles that will have you scratching your head (or banging it against the desk in my case) for hours.
Just when you think you've got the hang of it, Attractio mixes it up once again, and back to the headscratching we go. Was that puzzle really suppossed to be so complicated? Probably.

Things couldn't get much better for puzzle lovers, but they do.
Attractio features a story that will have you hooked. I am currently still making my way through some tough chambers, so I am unsure of how much there is, but with each chamber that goes by, the story unravels, and that half hour it took me is worth it.

Quick Pros & Cons:

Pros:
*Intuative Puzzles
*Clear graphics
*Challenging & lacks repetiton
*Many Puzzle-Solving Gadgets
*Great graphics
*Pick ups adding to the story, found in challenging locations.
*I can't think of a "Cons" list


Notes:
This game requires a LOT of patience & thought
You WILL (probably) get stuck for a while on at least one puzzle.
Remember to look up.
I would expect, and more than happily pay, a price tag of at least £25 for this game.
Buy this game; it's an absolute bargain.
Buy this game; support these incredible devs.
Buy this game; so that, one day, there may sequels.

This is a good gravity-base puzzle game. It's interesting and challenge. The fisrt-half of this game is somewhat easy because devs want players to familiarize with its play-style, the secand half become challenge and enjoyable. Final puzzle take me half hour to solve it. This is the first game features GRAVITY-oriented puzzle experience, original and creative. You can change the gravity direction of a box, make it fly upward to press a button on ceiling, or change the gravity direction of yourself and walking on ceiling. The graph is gorgeous but somewhat poor-optimization. I very surprised that this interesting game is so unnoticed, where the hell those guys vote on greenlight? Attractio deserves more attention.

​So, in a totally objective way, I can say that this game is the best gravity related, puzzle themed, kind of portal but not portal, game on 2016.

Spoyler alert:

Mia is hot.

Attractio is a nice Puzzle-Platformer
Its a game show with 3 contestants, all 3 with different abilities and different puzzles, you take turn in controlling them through the puzzles.

If you like puzzle, you will probably like this one.

Pros:
Actual puzzles, The game wants you to think, and most puzzles have more than one way to actually get to the finish.

Mechanics are explained right when they come into play. The game uses smaller layers throughout to slowly make things more and more advance.

Check points. Not only can you quit and start rooms, a lot of rooms also have save points within them allowing you to save your progress in that current puzzle. Moved that box? Well you can save it there, then kill yourself in every random way you could imagine to try and figure stuff out.

Cons:

Graphics. Not sure what causes it, but at maxed out settings the lighting is a bit harsh. Staring anywhere near a light source can be a bit blinding and a lot of things give off light.

Dialog/story. It is suppose to be a reality show, but, it gets pretty cringe worthy. I guess this shoudl be a middle ground thing since you could like a bad story/dialog mix.

Load times. Even on an SSD it takes it a few minutes just to load up every stage. If in windowed mode you could just do other stuff while loading though!

The last two stages, I'm not sure if I did the second to last stage correctly, but it just kind of enforced a trial and error until you get it right, with a very small window of success. And the finale is a "boss" which gives you no hints how to beat it.


Over all I would say they could have done a lot more with this game if they had ditched the ending and just kept making more puzzles, after all one of the last things you get to play around with is Zero-G, but it was really only used for the boss, and one or two other puzzle rooms.

Final words on the game and TLDR If you have twenty bucks, want a puzzle game. I would suggest it.

This game is great. Played it before it was on steam and it has come a long way. Puzzle are tricky, and fun. If you like games like portals try this game out. You will not be dissapointed.
