Vokabulantis is a bit of a mouthful, but we couldn't not bring your attention to this one. This game recently began a Kickstarter campaign, and it's been picking up a lot of buzz on social media. There's a good reason why: it's a fully hand-crafted, stop-motion animated puzzle platformer, and it looks awesome.
Indie studio Kong Orange is building the game with physical set pieces, props, and characters, then using photogrammetry to scan the objects into the digital realm. In action, the game looks like a Tim Burton-esque animated film — it looks to be very well done.
What of the game itself? It's a single player or co-op adventure about a pair of smitten kids who suddenly find themselves unable to speak. Traveling through the titular land of Vokabulantis, they need to work together to get home and tell each other how they feel. According to the Kickstarter page, the game is inspired by the likes of Inside, Unravel, and Little Nightmares.
We're definitely intrigued by this project. It'll probably quite some time before the finished article is ready, but it should be coming to PlayStation 5 when that day comes; it's "targeted for all major platforms". Hopefully nothing changes there.
Anyway, what do you think of Vokabulantis? Do you love the stop-motion animation as much as we do? Speak your mind in the comments section below.
