Levitate sheep as the haunting Albert & Otto hits Xbox One

-

It’s a game that is all about levitating sheep, utilising bunnies and traversing a haunting 1939 German world. Albert & Otto is here and it promises to bring a mysterious adventure to Xbox One!

Available right now for £9.59, Albert & Otto is a puzzle platformer that takes you through a deep, dark story. Taking charge of a young boy as he goes on the search for his strange and mysterious sister, you’ll be tasked with solving thought provoking puzzles and completing fast unforgiving gauntlet sections, all with the help of your little bunny. You see, it is this guy who could well be the star of the show and without the little rabbit by your side, you’ll find success a tough ask.

With a glorious visual style, Albert & Otto was originally released on PC with a view to being an ongoing 4-part adventure. Funding issues never allowed further episodes to materialise but should this tale go down well on console, then chances are those plans may well be revived. Let’s hope so!

Key features include:

  • Unique mechanic utilizing a little bunny which the player can carry around or leave and/or remotely control in order to solve puzzles
  • A story inspired by dark events buried in our history and told through a child’s drawings and clues scattered throughout the game that force the player to think outside the box
  • Levitate sheep, use them as platforms to swim on, a torch to light a dark cave or as a distraction for wolves while you make a quick escape. (if your stomach can handle it)
  • 2.5 – 3 hours of unique puzzles that utilize a bunny, levitation, electrical switches, wolves, piranhas and more Experience a mix of slow paced thought provoking puzzle design and fast unforgiving gauntlet sections
  • Come face to face with intimidating larger than life mechanical monsters and outsmart them

If you want to head on in to the strange, and fancy giving Albert & Otto a run out, then make sure you get over to the Microsoft Store right now. The game will release on PS4 come 16th/17th Jan, whist our full review will be with you in the days ahead.

Don’t forget to let us know if you’ll be picking it up.

Game Description:

Traverse a haunting world set in 1939 Germany in search of a mysterious girl with rabbit ears. Utilize a little bunny in creative ways to solve puzzles. Levitate sheep, use them as torches or wolf bait and make your way through a land that seems to not fancy you being alive. In this first installment “The Adventure Begins” the player is thrown headfirst into a haunting world set in 1939 Germany in search of a mysterious girl with bunny ears. Clues as to who she is and what happened to her are scattered throughout the game in the form of drawings left in post boxes and shards that the player must piece together. However the player is not alone on this adventure, help comes in the form of the girl’s magical bunny, Otto. The player must use both Albert and Otto in creative ways to traverse a haunting world. At the beginning of the story, Albert can shoot and jump, while Otto can fit through tight gaps and hold down power switches. But together, they unlock new skills such as a double jump, levitation, control of electrical currents, and more as the story unfolds.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
