International Octopus Day is on October 8, and just in time, Daylight Studios and Hexagoon announce the launch of Takoway.
Takoway is a ‘Necker Cube’ inspired puzzle game, featuring Tako the six-legged Octopus (Hexapus, more accurately). Tako must use different perspectives to solve each puzzle, befriend other creatures, and escape captivity.
Lead Designer (Hexagoon), Hazzry, commented in a press release:
There are so many parallels in this game with our actual experience of life. Hexagoon are a small team of outsiders sharing the common theme of being different. At one stage or other in our lives, each of us has felt a strong sense of not belonging and trying so hard to fit in that we lost our way. This central theme is evident in Takoway, Tako is searching for belonging in a hostile environment, and through the unusual creatures she meets, finds an unexpected sense of camaraderie… a bit like how the team at Hexagoon came together and bonded while making the game!
