Puzzle platformer fans will soon have a brand-new title to tinker with: Cordens Interactive and Deck13 have revealed Vesper, an upcoming game with a particularly unique art style and featuring some particularly creepy enemies for players to face.

Check out the Vesper Announcement Teaser to get your first look at this haunting puzzle platformer:

Thousands of years ago, something called the "Vesper Protocol" was activated. Fast-forward to today, and a small android named Seven is charged with deciding the fate of his race according to a press release.

At first, Seven is ill-equipped to deal with the menacing machines surrounding him. He soon acquires the Drivegun, a powerful weapon that can be used to absorb light, create darkness, open portals, and activate deadly traps. The Drivegun will even give players the ability to take control of your enemies, although it doesn't exactly specify how this will work.

Deck13's past works include Black Sails - The Ghost Ship and The Surge. The company has recently been acquired in its entirety by Focus Home Interactive as part of an initiative to expand its offerings. Presumably, Vesper will be Deck13's first new release as a part of the Focus Home Interactive family; it also looks like this will be the first commercial release for Cordens Interactive.

When is the Vesper Release Date?

This game certainly has a unique visual style and the puzzle mechanics sound pretty cool — when will you be able to play it?

Unfortunately, we don't know much more about this game beyond what you can see in the official trailer. The developer says that they're targeting a 2021 release window, but that's about as specific as they get.

For now, you can add Vesper to your wishlist on Steam. You can also see a bit more about the game (and its developer) at cordensinteractive.com.

What do you think of Vesper? Do you think this can stand out in the sea of puzzle platformers out there in the world? Let us know in the comments below!
