31 Jan, 2021
In the puzzle-platformer My Father My Son, what was to be an adventure has become a deadly fight for survival. Watch the trailer here.
A damaged boat with a father and son is washed up on the shore of a deserted island. The journey that was supposed to be a great adventure turns into a deadly fight for survival. Watch the announcement trailer for the exciting puzzle platformer My Father My Son:
My Father My Son is an unusual project for Blinkclick Games, a studio based in Poland. It will be a puzzle platformer, where you control two characters simultaneously — a father and son. You can choose to control the two characters at once, or in co-op — locally on a shared screen or online, where each of the two players will take control of one character. The game will allow you to choose your controller for the PC version: you can control the game with a keyboard, one or two controllers or two types of input so that one character is controlled by a keyboard and the other is controlled by a pad.
My Father My Son is based on solving successive environmental puzzles in cooperation. The characters differ from each other in their capabilities. The strong, tall father can break down doors, push heavy obstacles and lift up his son, who in turn easily passes through narrow gaps and nimbly climbs to hard-to-reach heights. The characters will move along two parallel paths, which can be changed at will. The puzzle-based gameplay is also interwoven with arcade challenges, such as running from a massive rolling boulder.
Everything is presented in a 2.5D side-scrolling view and an interesting low-poly style. This type of art design is characterized by the presentation of objects as simple blocks, straight from the works of Pablo Picasso.
In addition to interesting gameplay, My Father My Son will feature a very engaging and deep story.
For many people, the relationship with their father is not one of the easiest. Sometimes it’s a difficult, painful topic. The characters of the game have problems understanding each other. After the sudden death of the boy’s mother, the pair became distant from each other and seemingly closed themselves in.
The cruise was meant to bring them closer together, but an unexpected storm at sea turns everything upside down: the father and son are shipwrecked on an abandoned island, which is not on any maps, and which is hiding a terrible secret. In addition, they are persecuted by a dark, hostile character. Will they be able to escape the island and discover the secret the island hides?
The developers believe that My Father My Son would be a good choice for spending time with family or friends. Playing in cooperation with a family member can be an interesting experience, an opportunity to reflect on the topic of family relationships, as well as an option to spend another long evening during lockdown.
