Trailer: Incredipede

By: Derek Yu

On: September 18th, 2011

Colin Northway, creator of the popular physics game Fantastic Contraption, unveiled his latest project at Sense of Wonder Night in Tokyo last week, as part of the Tokyo Game Show. Incredipede is a physics-based platformer where you control a little creature that can be built and rebuilt using jointed limbs and muscles. The game will put various obstacles in front of you that you have to overcome with your creations. From the looks of it, you’ll have a lot of options in terms of what you can make and how you want to get past each obstacle!

Colin has made it clear that Incredipede is very much work-in-progress, and the graphics do not reflect the final look of the game. A video of his SOWN presentation can be found below (the noisemakers are provided to the audience to sound their approval).

    What do you think is the difference beetween pink and purple muscles?

  • Anonymous

    You can make it out in the video: The pink ones are controlled by one set of controls and the purple ones by another.

    Real muscles can either contract themselves, or relax, but they can’t apply force by expanding (like in this trailer) I mean if they’re going to make a cave story clone at least they should get it right!

    Colin, this BBC documentary might help you:

    I made this game.

    Looks Great.   A possible idea could be u start out with a limited set of muscle and hence limited joints.  There is meat scattered around in the level.   More meat u collect = more joints available to overcome further obstacles

    wow… it looks great.

  • Spinyofdoom

    Cave story? As in the 2d indie platformer/shooter released in 2004?  I think you have the wrong game bro.

  • Truly Wizard

    Not to mention that I doubt “real muscles” are the goal here.
