PUSH is a game that will make you hate yourself. An affront to the modern dogma of “hand-holding” game design and kids-gloving players into feeling like gods for doing nothing, PUSH is not an ordinary puzzle game. It will challenge you. It will defeat you. You will give up, and you will come back later jaded and filled with rage.
But the difficulty in PUSH does not come from unwieldy control schemes or unpredictable enemies. This is a game of logic, a game of calculation, a game of wits. Every time you fail it will be your fault. You will slowly give up on yourself, and just as you begin to believe that you have succeeded in beating a level, as the doors open inviting you to move on to the next challenge, you will realize that you were wrong. That you have to start again. Like Sisyphus pushing the boulder up the hills of Tartarus, this is your hell. Your destiny.
You will lie awake in bed at night, haunted by the puzzles. They will stand by the foot of your bed, staring at you with their blackened, hollowed eyes, whispering, “one… more… try.”
In less than an hour, the KickStarter for PUSH’s Greenlight fee was fully funded. Now the game needs your votes on Steam Greenlight!
