Ankama announces FLY’N, a platform-puzzle game

Roubaix, France – 4th May 2012 – Ankama unveils its new game that takes place in an entirely new universe.

Ankama gave a small team free rein to develop FLY’N; a dreamy, atmospheric game full of quirky character. This single-player, platform-puzzle game is due to be available for PC, for keyboard and joypad.

In order to try and save the World-Trees threatened by Dyer (the mad hair-dryer), the player must switch between four tree-born guardians (otherwise known as Buds) and utilise each of their individual aptitudes to the absolute max.

FLY’N will be submitted to the IndieCade jury on 6th and 7th October 2012.

Story :

The end is nigh for the World-Trees of Helycia. Dyer, the cosmic bin man, has decided to rob all of the World-Trees’ sap, the Helys. Little by little, beneath the rubbish scattered by Megabin, Dyer’s cosmic dustbin, the World-Trees are passing away...

Eager to fight back, the World-Trees create Buds, small creatures reproduced from their roots. Flyn and the other Buds will need to combine their powers to find the Helys, re-establish the World-Trees’ harmonious balance and foil Dyer’s devilish plans once and for all.
