Developer Huge Calf are making gaming news. Hence working on a #physics puzzle game, Carried Away. Currently in development for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Where the player constructs #chairlifts, drag lifts, gondolas, #jumps and bridges. All to help skiers and mountain bikers navigate different mountain terrain. So if you’re a skier, snowboarder or mountain biker, you will be inspired. Since the gaming experience itself takes influence from classic bridge building titles. All using tension and compression created by cable systems. So gaming takes the avid qualities of bridge building games. Then flips it all upside down to create entirely new physics puzzles.
Although, from a snowboarding perspective. The last thing one wants is to have to worry about a lift coming down. So gaming is taken with a grain of salt here. But the whole concept does capture the interest.
Since Carried Away will bring equal measures of success and failure. Where players attempts to build strong structures with a limited budget. Creating tense moments followed by a few laughs. Set in a colourful, low-poly world. Therefore Carried Away provides the tools to create your own engineering puzzles. Then once you have learned the ropes in the campaign. Challenge friends and the community, sharing your creations and replays online.
- Original physics challenges
- Classic physics challenges
- More than 50 levels
- Varied campaign
- Sandbox mode including procedural mountain generation
- In-game level builder

“We have been having so much fun working on this game and when we’re ready to share this with you, we will be opening the doors to early access users. During Early Access, the game will still be packed with features and puzzles, but we will be welcoming and acting on community feedback to make the game even better.”
So the big news, Carried Away will be coming to Early Access first. Hence a better means of shaping the game into something more viable. Which is smart, seeing we can expect to see Linux, Mac and Windows PC support. Yet even better, the physics puzzle games’s Early Access price will set at $9.99 USD, and the final build at $14.99 USD.
However, in order for Carried Away to get on Steam, they need that community support on Greenlight.
