Snapshot released for PC

By: Lorne Whiting

On: August 30th, 2012

Retro Affect’s puzzle-platformer Snapshot is now available for Windows on Steam at the modest price of $8.99.

Snapshot is based around storing objects in photographs which can then be placed in the world at will in order to solve puzzles, but a video is worth an indeterminately large amount of words so the trailer above shows the mechanics far better than I can describe them. The game was designed by Kyle Pulver, who began working on it all the way back in 2008 after finishing the excellent Bonesaw, and will be coming to several other platforms– Linux, Mac, Playstation 3, and PSVita –in the near future.

    dont keep your hopes high. although for some reason every indie blog advertised it, their previous puzzle game offspring fling was a cheesy easy meh game. i dont think this would be any different, maybe one or two nice level, then 378 times repeat of that.

    Woo! I first heard about this years and years ago. Good to see it’s been completed.

    Offspring Fling was made in a bit over a year. Snapshot has had a lot more time to bake.

    Why would anyone down-vote this comment??
    In fact, why all the down-voting in these comments?

    “I wish I were the moon” on steroids.

    Gargoyle’s Quest combined with two layers to play at… Very neat game! :)

    It looks as if the Tigsource trolls are limiting themselves to spamming the downvote button. I consider this a tremendous improvement.
