Kalimba Releasing December 17th

by on November 14, 2014

Press Play, developer of Max and the Cursed Brotherhood, are releasing their new title, Kalimba, on December 17th.

Initially showcased under the codename ‘Project Totem’, Kalimba is a playful yet challenging platformer with single-player and couch co-op modes.

The game was originally conceived during the final development stages of Press Play’s Max: The Curse of Brotherhood. “My brother and I needed a creative outlet, so we started working on a small side-project in our spare time” explained Creative Director Asger Strandby. “Finding and fixing bugs all day long can be tiring, so working on something fresh on the side gave us a chance to be creative and test out new ideas” added younger brother Bo Strandby.

Kalimba takes place on multiple levels across three different worlds, and features a unique trixelated art style (everything built of triangles that draws heavily on graphical design). This original style gives each puzzle, enemy, and totem a distinctive look and feel.

Kalimba will be available worldwide from December 17th on Xbox One for $9.99. A PC version will launch in January 2015.
