Reviews

“Path of Motus is easily one of the most interesting games I saw at PAX East. The way it examines the player’s place within a gaming experience is brilliant, and it also has a meaningful message to share as well.”
PlayStation LifeStyle

“A mind-bending experience. Path of Motus will not be the game you think it is when you first approach it, but with very little investment, you’ll start to see how talented Hicks is at making a lot out of a little bit.”
Irrational Passions

“The Path of Motus is a breakthrough creation that can not be judged by cold objective criteria.”
IGN (Greece)

About This Game

Will you let other people stop you from pursuing your dreams? For generations, a village of goblins has been trapped inside a mysterious forest; anyone who attempts to leave returns hopeless and defeated. Determined to break new ground, a young goblin named Motus plans to build a series of bridges through the forest. However, his perseverance will soon be tested, as he meets bullies that use their own words to stop him. Will you find a way through life's forest, or like others be lost in its depths with no will to continue?

Developed for three years by Michael Hicks (design, music, programming, writing) and Gonçalo Antunes (all art and animations), The Path of Motus weaves gameplay and story together to deliver a poetic experience unlike anything before it.

Featured Gameplay:
  • Verbal Combat: Motus meets bullies that yell a variety of deadly words; you'll need to tactfully use your own words to deal with them. Will you use your words to inspire, or to destroy?
  • Bridge building: There's a reason why no one's made it through the forest! Solve challenging bridge puzzles to build a way out.
  • Growing Up: Face unique challenges as Motus gradually grows from a child to an adult. Meet exciting new characters in each chapter of life and explore the deeper reasons for why they're so aggressive towards others.
  • Thought Doors: Solve innovative puzzles that convey what Motus is feeling throughout the story. Unlike other story based games, the coolest moments in The Path of Motus come across nonverbally as you play.
