Award-winning console platformer Rochard comes to the PC on Nov. 15
Recoil Games’ side-scrolling puzzle platformer Rochard, which enjoyed a successful launch on the PlayStation Network back in September, is coming to the PC via digital download through Steam on Nov. 15. Rochard takes gamers on a gravity-bending adventure packed with puzzles, action, humor and a rich story full of fascinating alien mysteries.
According to the developer, “Rochard follows the story of the humble astro-miner John Rochard as he and his mining team discover an ancient structure hidden deep in an asteroid, mankind’s first proof of extraterrestrial life. Soon after, John’s team goes missing and space pirates attack the mine, and John quickly realizes there are dangerous forces at work, determined to use the mysterious discovery for their own means. Using only his wits, everyday mining tools and a healthy dose of sarcasm, John must fend off the pirates, save his team and solve the mystery behind his discovery.
“The game allows players to change gravity at will to solve environmental puzzles and advance through each level. By using the main tool of the game, the upgradable G-Lifter, players can lift and maneuver boxes and heavy objects around the environment and can eventually swing, jump and propel themselves huge distances throughout each level.”
