This month FLEGA co-founding member Triangle Factory is set to launch Yeti Set Go!, a 2D snowboarding game for phones and tablets that offers time-control and gyroscopic gameplay. Yeti Set Go! originally started out as a prototype two years ago. Triangle Factory worked on the title on and off, between paid client work. However, they recently found enough time to push the project into completion.
Gameplay-wise, you could compare the game to Trials mixed with Sonic. You control your yeti’s position on the board and the physics simulation takes care of the rest. Thus you have to make sure you perform smooth landings while doing sweet flips and grinds to complete the levels without bailing and be quick and nimble enough to get through tricky parts in each level.
Unique in this game: the possibility to rewind time to go back to a point where you can recover. Players can decide where they want to restart from, so a checkpoint wherever you want one to be. It’s definitely more fun and less frustrating when you try to complete a particularly hard level.
Another nice feature is the Wheel Controller: a virtual on-screen thumbstick to replace gyroscopic gameplay. With the Wheel Controller, you don’t have to look like a crazy person in public waving your phone or tablet around all the time.
FLEGA wishes Triangle Factory a highly succesful release! In the meantime check out this nice gameplay trailer.
