The gameplay teaser for Life on a Mountain is oddly enchanting – it features a pixelated blob as a main character, a cave and a snowy landscape, and somehow with these vague elements it tells a charming story. We swear, the room got colder as we watched.
Life on a Mountain comes from Luftrausers and Nuclear Throne music maker Jukio Kallio, and he describes it as "a video game about breathing the fresh air of the mountain and thinking about all the secrets it might hide." So far, it looks like a simplistic blend of Don't Starve and Nuclear Throne, with characters that look as if they're related to Offspring Fling.
There's no word on a development timeline, but Kallio submitted a build to Fantastic Arcade, the independent gaming show in Austin, Texas.
