And Yet It Moves Developers Announce Their New Game – Secrets Of Raetikon

by on July 9, 2013

Secrets of Rætikon, to use the correct lettering, is a game about flying around the alps. Little is known aside from that, save that your objective is to unlock the secrets of ancient machines scattered around the world while trying to avoid the hungry jaws of a few Lynxes.

The game promises a fully interactive ecosystem full of animals that interact with each other, and gameplay that lets the player choose between conflict and compassion.

What is that gameplay? I don’t know! The only trailer released so far is painfully arts-y, and the released screenshots aren’t saying much either.

We do know that the game has been in development since 2011, and we also know the lineage of the developer, Broken Rules. Their past two games were And Yet it Moves and Chasing Aurora.

The visual style bears clear similarities to the geometric designs of Aurora, and that game was also created around the concept of flight. It doesn’t seem like too much of a leap, then, to consider that Chasing Aurora might have been a competitive offshoot of Secrets of Rætikon.

Wait for next week when they’ll reveal it as a massive first person open world adventure, and I shall eat one of my many hats with a side of humble fruitcake.

Check out the trailer below. Secrets of Rætikon is in development now, but its release date and platforms remain, much like its gameplay, a mystery
