'Magrunner: Dark Pulse' (ALL) Pre-Order Gets You Early Accces - Screen

by Rainier on June 11, 2013 @ 11:36 a.m. PDT

Magrunner: Dark Pulse is a first-person action puzzle game set in a cyberpunk reimagining of H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos!

In the near future, high-tech and ancient horrors collide as the world teeters on the brink of oblivion. Only our hero Yoshi, with his mutant mentor Gamaji and his robotic dog Newton, stand in the way of eldritch annihilation.

Yoshi and Newton enter the Gruckezber Magtech Challenge, a corporate-sponsored technology competition drawing contestants from around the world for the 1 million credit grand prize. They soon discover, however, that this friendly game has a much darker purpose behind it…

Magrunner’s unique game mechanics focus on magnetic polarity and its manipulation to solve environmental puzzles. The potential for experimentation with polarities in the game is immense with a variety of environmental triggers, effects, machines, and objects at your disposal. The gameplay is simple yet dynamic, testing not only your reaction speed, but also your ability to think quickly to save your life!

Magrunner is playable today as an Early Access version on the Steam digital download service for players who have preordered the game.

Gamers can use this playable version to plunge headlong into the Magtech space research training program. Equipped with their glove utilizing Gruckezber's technology, they must find their way through the first 12 rooms of a massive training center full of puzzles and physical obstacles.

What was supposed to be a space program financed by a large corporation quickly turns into a living nightmare, a descent into hell from which no one will emerge unscathed.
