A Walk in the Dark Trailer Stars a Cute Kitten in the Scary Woods

on January 26, 2012 2:00 PM

Indie games with a striking visual style are a dime a dozen these days, and it takes something truly special to stand out from the crowd. A Walk in the Dark ups the ante right away by having the playable character being an adorable kitten, but how about the gameplay? Judging from the trailer the game seems to incorporate a gravity flipping mechanic a-la VVVVVV with some more standard platforming affairs thrown into the mix. The death-like monster that shows up repeatedly reminds me a little of the monsters from the movie 9, which is a good thing.

Check out the trailer after the break and keep an eye out for more on A Walk in the Dark, with a currently vague “2012” release date.
