Description

Newt One rewards you for how much life you bring to the game world, not how much life you take from it. Embodying your progress through color and music, Newt One's purpose is to generate happiness. You play as Newt, a new tone in a musical land that has fallen to the Gray Slumber. Awakening this sleeping, silent world is your rite of passage. Seek out your friends and find the missing Elders to restore this realm's music, life, and color!

History

Late in 2015 Ari posted about wanting to make a game. Dev was experimenting with interactive sound systems and happened upon the post. The time was right. A partnership was born. Since then, Newt One has crawled from the primoridal ooze of standard 3D Platformer design and has been steadily evolving. Morphing and maturing into a unique entity, Newt One is now in late Beta and nearly ready to permeate the ether into the collective subconscious.

Features

  • Restore your realm's music, life, and color!
  • Enchanting music that adapts to the world
  • Completely Nonviolent gameplay
  • Cute, memorable art style
  • Innovative 3D Platforming fun
  • 4 unique Worlds each with 6 levels
