Rising from the humble beginnings of the Ludum Dare competition, Jamalaide, a 10 strong team of developers, offer a fresh twist on Puzzle-Platforming. Celia will have you navigating a magical wonderland of cupcakes and teacups with the word of the day being, “size”.
Title – Celia
Developer – Jamalaide
Platforms – PC
Genre – Platformer
Come with us on a trip through a fantastic land of wonder in Celia. Originally developed by those grinning cats at Jamalaide for Ludum Dare 23, Celia is an exciting puzzle platformer that is sure to expand your mind.
Help the mimsy Celia grow into the galumphing heroine of her dreams as she gyres through the labyrinths of infinity into the enchanted forests for an insane tea party.
You'll encounter cakes of growth and tea of diminishment in a beautifully realised storybook realm. Climb towers as a giant and negotiate small tunnels as a not-so giant.
Don't forget to Eat Me!
Coming from a guy who traditionally is not for platformers, this is actually a pretty interesting concept. The art is beautiful and the gameplay is challenging. You can expect to see big things from the charming little take on Alice in Wonderland.
At first glance there isn't much to see, but it's when the mechanics are given a chance to shine that you'll see a lot of potential. The core idea here is the ability to change size. You need to think before you act or you might find yourself stuck down a hole. You might happen upon a teacup that makes you too small to jump to the next ledge. This game is hardcore. Don’t take it lightly.
Be sure to take a jump down the rabbit hole and give this one a try at the Indie Games Room 2012!
