Hi all :)

People have been asking about the gameplay in Baby The Knife. It's nice with all the story and setting, but how do I play it?

Baby The Knife is a 3d sidescrolling beat'em up/puzzle platform game.

3D means that all objects in the game will be made as 3 dimensional objects. 3D objects are more complicated and expensive to make then 2d objects. A game like Limbo is made in 2d and initially we wanted to do the same thing. But making it in 2d means that a lot of the fun in the gameplay wouldn't be possible, so we've decided to do it in 3d.

Sidescroller” refers to the movement of the ”camera” (gamedevelop-speak for the point of view). The camera scrolls from left side to right side. It's an established ”genre” in games with a ton of titles. The picture of Baby & Saint Peter in the earlier blogpost is actually concept-art-drawing of an ingame scene.

Beat'em up means that the game is about fighting. In classic beat'em-ups the hero would go through a level and beat a lot of weak henchlings and bosses at the end of the levels. Baby The Knife is differently: we have no henchlings, but only boss-fight with unique and challenging enemies.

Puzzle platform” means that if people doesn't want to fight, they can circumvent the fight by taking a different path and solve puzzles to progress.

So basically you go through the city, hell & heaven, beating up anybody who stops you or – if you are more peacefull – avoid them by progressing through puzzles.
