About this project
Flight of the Wisp is a casual style puzzle game that combines clever use of physics and the interactive relationships of the elements to help a small sentient ball of energy find its way out of an underground abandoned laboratory set in a steampunk universe.
You play a Wisp, a small ball of energy that is immune to the solid physical effects of the world, but upon contact with other forms of energy, you become them and are able to use your new form to solve the many elemental based puzzles you will encounter on your adventure towards the surface.
Awaking in this abandoned lab, you have no understanding of your purpose, but make your way towards the surface, revealing more of the story behind your strange surroundings and unveiling the sinister purpose behind your creation.
In the game you are able to use one of the 6 current energy types of: Water, Fire, Wind, Electric, Frost, and Heat to make your way through each stage, solving puzzles by burning, freezing, electrifying, steaming, condensing, igniting, drenching, melting, conducting, redirecting, pushing and pulling other forms of energy, gizmos, and kinetic machines found through out the underground laboratory.
Use fire to melt ice, frost to freeze water, fire to steam water and then push the steam to a new location with wind. The plethora of puzzles you will encounter within Flight of the Wisp use a combination of elemental manipulation, kinetic contraptions, and physics to pass obstacles, open doors, create new energy resources, move cranes, fire cannons, push sleds, electrify Tesla Coils and ignite TNT!!!
Enjoy the puzzles at your own pace, or attempt to beat your best time. Each level is streamlined to be an enjoyable experience, while challenging the closer you get towards the surface.
Currently, "Flight of the Wisp" will be supported on PC/Mac with planned electronic distribution through Steam and Desura. A DRM-Free version of the game will be available as well. A future port to iOS and Android devices is also being considered.
Note: Beta Test access is limited to Desura at the moment.
We've been developing Flight of the Wisp on our own funds for sometime now, but those funds have run dry. We wish to complete this game but we need your help to make it possible. Were using Kickstarter to fund the final stages of development for Flight of the Wisp. With your donations we will be able to afford:
- Software Licenses: As a startup studio, software is an expensive requirement for getting the job done, and your funds would enable us to do so.
- Additional Talent: As a two man development team, it helps to bring additional creative talent to the table, to ensure the best game is being delivered to you.
- Support Costs: Web hosting and hardware maintenance adds up, and your funds will help keep the gears turning.
- Polish: Your funding allows us additional time to add, polish, and perfect artwork, game play, and puzzles.
Were happy to finally show our game to you, and from us at Phoenix Dawn Studios, we thank you for your donations and support.
