A small gaming company called Forward For is working on a game called “Inochi Project”. I got to watch a pretty neat video outlining what the game is about and it appears to have a good bit of potential. The footage was from a very early build but, from what I saw it looked pretty innovative.
The game focuses a good bit on you own “Ani-Mech” Robot. The robots are relatively simple in design but can be customized with different parts, shapes, and colors. The game had a very cute charm that reminded me of a cross between LittleBigPlanet and Neopets. The Inochi Project offers nigh unlimited potential with the promise of user generated content. You can collect all sorts of different parts for your Ani-Mech, battle them against other players, and much more in the future. Forward For is working hard to make the game family friendly but, still retain a wide appeal to all audiences.
The game is being developed on the Unity Engine which means that it could come to major consoles in the future. The game is still in its infancy and will have a Kickstarter Project soon to help raise funding. If the game sparks your interest you may visit their official website below for more information.
