Traxmaster Software revealed that the upcoming 2.5D combat platformer, Exception,will be heading to all major platforms and PC on August 13th. What makes this particularly amazing to me is that the game is developed by just one man. The latest gameplay trailer showcases the unique level shifting mechanics, which combines two-dimensional action with a three-dimensional world, that offers that oomph platforming fans are looking for.
In Exception an old woman’s computer has been taken over by ‘Titan’, a totalitarian virus set to destroy the operating system. Players take on the role of a hero who must vanquish the malicious invader that is crippling the system before it crashes. Using easy controls, traverse through timed byte-sized levels, overcome various obstacles and enemies as quickly as possible to secure a place on one of the online leaderboards catered to different play styles. Whether the player chooses an evasion tactic or straight up combat, Exception’s classic platforming experience features an innovative level shifting mechanic, which spices up the gameplay and reveals secret pathways and collectables.
Exception will launch on PC, Playstation 4, and Nintendo Switch for $14.99 on August 13th.
