Modus Games and Moondrop have recently unveiled a new trailer for the upcoming 2D adventure platformer Degrees of Separation, which will be available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 14, just in time for Valentine’s Day. The trailer highlights the cooperative and narrative aspects of the title, which is brought to life thanks to Fallout: New Vegas writer Chris Avellone.
Degrees of Separation taps Chris Avellone’s ability to craft rich, tapestry-like lore, telling the tale of a girl and boy from two different worlds whose lives intertwine. Ember and Rime, bound to the forces of warm and cold respectively, set off on a vivid journey where upon meeting they are instantaneously divided by their two disparate worlds, driving them together – and apart – on a journey to bridge the gap between them.
Prevented from touching one another by their differing elemental affinities, Ember and Rime explore the magnetic potential of opposing forces. Each level of Degrees of Separation represents a different stage in the couple’s relationship, and thus offers a new mechanic that the two protagonists will have to master in order to progress. Offering players the option to go solo or co-op with a partner – either local or online – Ember and Rime each make use of their elemental abilities to solve puzzles as they traverse multiple unique worlds.
