Developer Sumo Digital have released a 'How to Play' video for it's platformer Snake Pass. It also released the debut episode of its video dev diary series - The Story of Snake Pass - where creator Seb Liese discusses Snake Pass' humble beginnings from an internal game jam project, through development, to its first consumer demo at EGX Rezzed in 2016.
"Sharing the first developer diary is great because it shows how quickly the game evolved. That original prototype already had the feel we wanted, but it was building an actual game around it that became the challenge," Said Seb Liese, creator of Snake Pass. "Seeing that rudimentary green snake is quite comical now. We worked so hard to turn him into something charming and ended up with the Noodle you see today, a character I hope will resonate with people of all ages."
In addition, Snake Pass will be playable at PAX East, in the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (BCEC), from March 10th - 12th. Sumo Digital welcomes all PAX attendees to try the game out and find out if they can "think like a snake" in order to complete the demo. There will also be a speedrun leaderboard, with top scorers of the day earning special prizes.
Snake Pass will launch on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch on the 28th of March in North America and on the 29th of March in Europe. The game will be available for $19.99/£16.99/â‚¬19.99.[[quote]][[/quote]]
