During the PC Gaming Conference today, Nolla Games released a brand new trailer for Noita, a beautiful looking action-roguelike that physically simulates every pixel.
For those of you who aren’t aware, Olli Harjola, Petri Purho, and Arvi Teikari, who worked the popular titles The Swapper, Crayon Physics Deluxe, and Environmental Station Alpha, respectively, make up Nolla Games. We learned alongside its announcement last year that Noita is a rogue-lite, so it features elements like procedurally generated environments, permadeath, and being able to upgrade craft new and better spells with each consecutive run.
Every pixel in the game is “physically simulated” by the game’s proprietary Falling Everything engine, leading to some very dynamic and gorgeous looking visuals. This also allows the environments to be highly interactive, and you can see some examples of that in this newest gameplay trailer. The game’s name also has an interesting origin; Noita is the finnish word for witch.
You can check out the newest trailer for the game below. Noita will release on PC sometime in 2018.
