When it comes to gameplay, Residual isn’t going to bore you. The game will feature a mixture of craftings along with some light puzzles. Of course, sustaining on this strange planet might prove to be a hard one. But don’t worry, you can always find some usable alien tech along the course of the journey to help you out.
The further you proceed, the more chances for your survival in the game. But the ups(unique selling point) of the game is that it entirely ditches guns, weapons, or any sort of violence.
Residual is developed by the one-man Duch game developer OrangePixel. But don’t let the size of the company fool you. Pascal (The man behind OrangePixel) is well known for developing some quality games. Heroes of Loot, Sir Questionnaire, Space Grunts 2, Gunslugs 3 are to name a few.
Our Thoughts on Residual and its Release Date
Honestly, it is refreshing to see that a few developers are trying to create games with a bit of a different approach. Residual is an excellent move by OrangePixel to create a game with the idea that every adventure game doesn’t need to include guns-blazing action.
The game seems like the right balance of adventure, exploration, and puzzle-solving. Residual would definitely provide a room for the players who enjoy more chilled-out and peaceful games.
As of the release date, OrangePixel hasn’t revealed any firm release date for the game. Currently, it is expected to launch later this year or by the earliest 2021. So, there is still a bit of time.
Upon release, Residual will be available for iOS, Android, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Also, If you are impatient and would like to see what’s the game all about, you can take a look at the demo, which is soon set to go live on Steam.
