Odyssey Entertainment will have players turning enemies into objects and using them to solve puzzles. An experience coming to Steam and other stores this Spring.
Since Transmogrify burst to life from a game jam. The theme being “unconventional weapon”, which was a fun challenge.
Therefore, instead of just shooting everything in your path and running forward. The developers create a different experience and realising there is a fun game in the works. All coming to life, thanks to 115 backers pledging $5,396 USD via Kickstarter.
Transmogrify‘s gameplay is a blend of solving puzzles, platforming action, and exploring an immersive facility. Since each enemy turns into a different object with their own purposes.
Therefore, there may come a time where you may need a block to hold down a button. Which also happens to open a door or reach a small ledge.
In another case, you might want to find an enemy to turn into a one-way platform. While making it easier to traverse a big horizontal gap. A different puzzle may require you find a spring in order to bounce your way up to a high vertical area.
