Tentacles: Enter the Mind, which showed up as a trademark filing in March has been announced as the next title from Max: The Curse of Brotherhood studio Press Play.
The Copenhagen-based studio said the title is a “new take on the Tentacles universe and mechanic” from Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin.
It’s set in a 3D world, with bizarre creatures around each corner of Phluff’s mind. Players who eat these creatures eyes will acquire new powers.
Here’s the synopsis:
Literally enter the mind of Professor Phluff, a mad scientist with a dolphin head who’s obsessed with making the world a cuter place. But everything has gone horribly wrong. Dr. Phluff’s mind has become infested by the cute creations he so dearly adores and they’re making him even crazier than he was before. Luckily, his subconscious has a plan and will help you on your journey.
Navigate as Lemmy, a rubbery tentacled monster, and clean out each layer of Dr. Phluff’s troubled psychosis. Use the intuitive, controls to avoid tricky projectiles and surface hazards, while snacking on eyeballs along the way. From paranoia to hysteria – the goal is simple – clean out each layer of Professor’s Phluff’s mind and survive for as long as possible.
“Tentacles is first and foremost about playful, challenging mechanics that are both entertaining and engaging,” said aid creative director Ole Teglbjærg. “It takes place in a twisted, surreal universe where there are no limits to Professor Phluff’s fantasies, and I guess this game speaks to a very broad audience…who doesn’t like mad scientists and tentacles?”
Tentacles: Enter the Mind is scheduled for release in early summer on the Microsoft Store for Windows 8 PC and RT Devices.
