Will You Snail a difficult 2D platformer game that holds hope for Linux with Windows PC. All due the efforts of developer Jonas Tyroller. Working to make its way onto Steam next month.
No Gravity Games announces that they will be launching Will You Snail. The long awaited game made by solo developer and Youtuber, Jonas Tyroller. Which is due to arrive on March 9, 2022.
Will You Snail is a unique platformer where an evil AI predicts your movement. Dodge AI-spawned traps, solve optional puzzles and uncover the dark secrets of the simulation. Which also happens to run well on Linux via Proton 7.0. As for a native build, well….
I hope I can do a native build as well some time.
According to the email from Jonas Tyroller, his biggest fear with native Linux builds is not being able to offer good tech support. Just in case people run into problems. The game itself is developed via Game Maker Studio 2. But still holds hope for a Linux port when the developer has time. But I can confirm a flawless Proton experience, which looks fantastic. Slso best played with a game controller.
Will You Snail is all fast-paced precision platforming. AI spawned traps. Cocky voice lines. Combat. Puzzles. Snails. Unicorns. There is also a story about artificial intelligence and a dark secret to uncover. While the evil AI Squid tries to predict your movement a few seconds ahead of time. It uses that information in an attempt to stop you from reaching the end of the level. Will you win that intellectual battle or will Squid find yet another reason to make fun of you?
Will You Snail? – Coming March 9th
A lot of levels in Will You Snail are relatively empty by default. So the challenge comes from the interactions with the evil AI. You can change the difficulty at any time. Or let the game decide which one is the best one for you.
Solve some easy puzzles to calm down from the action. There are some more difficult puzzles as well. But every single puzzle in Will You Snail is completely optional. So they can be skipped if you want.
Find secrets, collect clues, and try to piece together where you are and what happened. Will You Snail tells a rather crazy story about artificial intelligence. Including a simulation theory and the future of humanity. While heckling you through each level. So what starts as simple, turns into mayhem. Also, be mind full of the different jump buttons.
- AI Predictions – AI Squid will try to predict your movement and use that knowledge to your disadvantage.
- Variety Gameplay – Puzzles, Basketball, Tower Defense, lots of variety in a very short amount of time.
- Captivating Story – Uncover the truth about AI, Simulation Theory, and the future of humanity.
- Automatic Difficulty Adjustments – Let Squid adjust the difficulty for you (or decide yourself how much you’d like to suffer)
Will You Snail difficult 2D platformer will be releasing on Steam, March 9, 2022. Due to arrive on Windows PC first, then a Linux build when time allows.
