Forma.8 looks to take metroidvania to space, or at least an alien planet. After being separated from your fellow probes, you are trapped and must explore, collect upgrades and power ups, and solve puzzles to figure out how to leave this dangerous world. They also promise a world full of secrets and huge boss battles.
The game’s art style is very interesting. It looks a little like Pixeljunk shooter, and it is a combination of 3D and hand drawn vector graphics. They are targeting 60 FPS, and the game will run in native 4K on the PS4 Pro.
Forma.8 has been in development for four years, and is the team’s dream game. It launches digitally on PS4 on February 23rd, but a limited edition physical release will be available sometime in the future through Limited Run Games.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
