A first trailer for FLY’N

Roubaix, France – 21 st June 2012 – Ankama unveils the first video of its platform game for PC scheduled for release this fall. FLY’N, the first Ankama game set in a different universe from that of DOFUS and WAKFU, will be available as a download only.

Ankama gave carte blanche to a team of 9 people to tell the story of Flyn and three other Buds, guardians of the World-Trees. Players will have to switch between two visions to find their way and save these worlds from Dyer, the crazy hairdryer that floods them with garbage.

The four Buds will be playable throughout about forty levels, a mix of platforms, puzzles, and exploration. Each Bud has specific characteristics, which you can see in the video:

-          Flyn uses his singing to interact with his environment and keep moving.

-          Lyft can stick to almost any wall.

-          Ywok, once inflated like a balloon, is invincible and bounces everywhere. He can break cracked blocks.

-          Nyls freezes and propels himself through the air, also capable of breaking cracked walls on his way.
