It’s no secret our region has some of the best game development schools, unearthing both local and international design talent. The latest student project to hit it big on itch.io is Sizeable, a cute little puzzle exploration game that’s being developed by LUCA School of Arts student Sander Ambroos.
The demo has you exploring four beautiful dioramas to find mysterious pillars. You do this by rotating the world and resizing different objects in order to see what they do. Shrink the sun for example and summer becomes winter, allowing you to pluck a pillar out of an abandoned bird’s nest.
It’s pretty simple stuff but it looks adorable and has a lovely soundtrack to boot. Last we looked the demo had racked up over 2000 downloads, but that was before it got picked up by Rock, Paper, Shotgun and PC Gamer, so we’d wager it’s gone up a lot in the last few days. (it has, in fact, more than doubled to 4136 downloads, according to the developer)
The demo currently has four levels and the developer says more may be added at a later time. It’s certainly a project worth keeping an eye on, so check out the latest developments on Facebook or follow Sander on Twitter.
