Is this the first game where the main character is a particle travelling through sub-atomic space?
The LHC particle accelerator in Cern starts operations this month again. Fittingly, GameArt Studio, the developer from Berlin announced the beginning of the closed beta of their new project, "Fermi's Path“. As scientists search for new particles, players take over the role of a subatomic particle called Fermi on its voyage over an energetic path.
In ever faster levels, driven by the beats of the music, players have to avoid many obstacles and destroy incoming particles to break the top score.
The Closed Beta phase, in which selected beta tester can try out and test the game, has now begun.
Of course the beta version does not yet offer all features of the release version. The following features will provided only in the finished version of the game:
- an Infinity mode
- Steam Highscores
- a Level editor
- Steam Achievements
- Steam Trading Cards
- Steam Workshop
- many more levels
The game will be released on Steam. Already now, on the Steam Coming Soon page of Fermi's Path, players can get a first impression of the game and add it to their wishlist (http://store.steampowered.com/app/342650).
We have yet to play this game yet but visually reminds me of Audiosurf & Frequency. There is definitely a rhythm element regardless of the scientific content.
