Sweeping Sci-Fi Story: Droidscape: Basilica is a unique puzzle game set in a grim electropunk future. In the year 4057, a power-hungry Ecclesiarchy has plunged humanity into a new Dark Ages. One of few remaining Chronomancers dedicated to preserving the secrets of time-travel has been taken hostage on the gargantuan Basilica space station, and if he dies, an already dark world will get a lot darker. Only a small, unarmed droid named Bishop 7 can save him -- and only with your help.

Action Puzzle Gameplay: In each of Droidscape: Basilica's 60 levels, players must navigate around patrolling enemy droids, grabbing gems and keys needed to proceed. First, use strategy to plot Bishop 7's course across a room. Then, transport the droid safely across the room with a mix of reflexes and problem solving skills.

Stop-Motion Animated Graphics: Kyttaro Games has approached Droidscape: Basilica like an interactive work of art, teaming up with visual artist Hariton Bekiaris who hand modeled the characters in clay and painstakingly animated them using stop-motion technology.

Head-Tracking Controls: On iPad 2, iPhone 4S, iPod touch 5, and newer, Droidscape: Basilica supports Kyttaro's groundbreaking, but still experimental, "HeadTwister" technology, using the front-facing camera to turn the game into a hands-free, head-tracking, gesture-based experience. For players with earlier devices or who prefer hands-on play, Droidscape: Basilica also has tactile touch controls.

We hope you'll share the news about this upcoming puzzle game with your readers. Thanks for supporting an indie!
