Developed by Recoil Games, Rochard is a fun and original space adventure game that features a resourceful hero, ominous villains, rugged machinery, big explosions, even bigger stunts and sharp oneliners. The game tests players' coordination and wits as they use gravity to their advantage, changing it at will to solve environmental puzzles and advance through each level. By using the upgradable G-Lifter, the main tool of the game, players can lift and maneuver heavy objects around the environment, and can eventually swing, jump and propel themselves huge distances throughout each level. Grab a G-Lifter - your new best friend! Use it to change gravity at will, manipulate the environment, and throw huge crates at your enemies. Join the amazing exploits of astro-miner John Rochard and embark on a gravity-bending journey across the Solar System! Rochard is an award-winning side-scroller featuring hours of mind-blowing gravity gameplay, puzzle-solving and action. Narrated in a humorous cartoony style, Rochard tells a thrilling story of villains, a damsel in distress and a mysterious alien civilization. Key Features: - 5 long Chapters crammed with fast-paced platforming action and mind-bending puzzles based on gravity - A beautifully crafted cartoonish visual style, rich with humor and personality - Incredible items able to influence gravity and grab, swing and throw objects to solve puzzles or get rid of enemies - A groovy soundtrack composed by Markus Captain Kaarlonen from Poets of the Fall, mixing southern rock/blues and 80′s inspired electronic music - The legendary performance of Jon St. John as the voice of protagonist John Rochard - The most advanced use of the Unity engine in a video game
