New Blip: Evergate

Evergate, from Stone Lantern Games, is a puzzle-platformer that takes place in the afterlife, where souls travel from one realm to the next. You take on the role of Ki, a childlike soul who explores the dreamlike memories of her past, which are revealed by overcoming environmental challenges. Ki navigates these environments by using the Soulflame, which allows her to line up targets and perform several context-sensitive maneuvers that vary based on the type of crystal that is activated. These moves include bouncing herself in the opposite direction of the crystal, creating platforms that hover in the air, or boosting along like a guided missile. Some crystals even fire off projectiles when activated, allowing Ki to deal damage to bosses. Many puzzles offer multiple solutions, encouraging players to employ different tactics, and enticing speedrunners to seek out advanced time-shaving strategies.

The game is coming to PC soon. A demo is available on the game's Steam page.
