Degrees of Separation

A launch trailer for the upcoming 2D puzzle platformer, Degrees of Separation, was released today ahead of the game's launch on February 14, 2019. The game will take you through various stages of a relationship throughout its narrative.

Degrees of Separation is slated to be released on the 14th for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Steam. It's being developed by Moondrop and published by Modus Games.

The story is written by industry veteran Chris Avellone (Fallout: New Vegas, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II). It will retail for $19.99 at launch.

With one protagonist wielding the forces of heat and the other manipulating cold, players will work together with a partner or friend (or even go solo, controlling both protagonists in tandem) to overcome puzzling obstacles while exploring a lush fantasy world. Can two opposing forces truly coexist and grow closer with such polarity between them? Each of Degrees of Separation’s worlds explores a different stage of a budding relationship - ranging from trust to anger - incorporating varying emotions and gameplay mechanics that change how players must approach each area they traverse. From the ability to create explosions of opposing energy, to constructing platforms with the converging forces flowing between them, dual protagonists Ember and Rime must find ways to work together in order to progress.
