The Watchlist: Standpoint

Title: Standpoint
Developer: Vethan
Platforms: PC, Mac, Linux
Releasing 2014
Standpoint is a first-person puzzle-platform video game. Change the world's orientation to navigate through levels and discover the true meaning of your surroundings, as the voice of the Narrator accompanies you on your journey.

Inspired by games like VVVVVV and the free-form movement of Alien Vs Predator's xenomorphs, Standpoint is an upcoming first person puzzle platformer that will challenge you to think in spatially new ways in order to survive and explore. You have the ability to reorient gravity to any surface as well as quickly flip gravity. This skill allows for a diverse range of puzzles and traps from avoiding lasers as shown in the trailer to essentially "floating" past dangerous corridors by flipping gravity and dealing with objects and mechanics that shift with every gravitational reorientation.
Standpoint isn't simply about using gravity to your advantage, but is also a story-driven experience. A Narrator will guide you through the minimalist corridors and slowly you may discover that the world is not what it seems to be. Standpoint is releasing in 2014 and you can follow its development on the game's official site.
