Are you into puzzle adventure games? Then this news is for you. Behaviour Interactive and Lunarch Studios are excited to announce the Islands of Insight Open Playtest on Steam. Until September 21, the playtest will be the first opportunity for players to dive into an epic journey of puzzles, exploration, and discovery and share feedback. For those curious about what they can expect during the playtest, Behaviour Interactive is also releasing a new Gameplay Reveal Trailer providing a closer look at Islands of Insight and its core features.
“We’re focused on creating an experience that brings something new and different to the puzzle genre,” says Carla Rylance, Head of External Production at Behaviour Interactive. “We’re still in active development, so players participating in our playtest will be treated to a taste of Islands of Insight’s expansive world, game mechanics, and puzzles, with lots still left to discover down the road. Putting the game into players’ hands for the first time and getting their feedback is incredibly exciting for us as we continue to build this unique puzzle adventure.”
Your goal in Islands of Insight is to unlock the secrets of the mysterious floating island you wake up on. The trailer showcases many sublime landscapes and mysterious puzzles that define the game’s core experience. From enigmas of perspective to mazes, logic problems, and environmental challenges, the trailer highlights the rich variety of puzzles that fill every corner of this peaceful world.
“Each of our puzzles is carefully placed and thoughtfully crafted to be relaxing, challenging, and satisfying to find and solve,” adds Rylance. “They also vary in difficulty, making this both a welcoming experience for newcomers and an engaging one for more seasoned puzzle fans.”
As part of the open playtest, participants can seek out and solve various puzzles densely spread across the landscape. You can freely explore an open world at your own pace, with secrets to discover and complete puzzle quests to progress the game’s campaign, unlock new areas, and reveal lore. The best part, though? Players get to contribute to improving the Islands of Insight experience by sharing feedback directly with the development team.
