Albert & Otto Out Now

Albert & Otto Out Now

Last week, a game we first saw at Pax East 2015 titled Albert & Otto release on Steam. When first seeing Albert & Otto, I was immediately reminded of Limbo, and the game certainly seems to take inspiration and follow the same aesthetic path as Limbo. However, it quickly be came apparent yo me not only that Albert & Otto was telling a much darker and more human story than Limbo, but also that they built up the formula Limbo discovered with a number of interesting mechancis, mainly revolving around a magical stuffed bunny…

 

Albert & Otto is a story about a boy and his abducted sister’s magical bunny. They embark on a journey to find her, overcoming murderous beasts and lethal puzzles by working together. Although Albert & Otto at first seems like a journey to save the damsel in distress, it is anything but. We soon learn that our hero might be hiding something from us, or rather, himself.

The player must use both Albert and Otto in creative ways to traverse a haunting world. At the beginning of the story, Albert can shoot and jump, while Otto can fit through tight gaps and hold down power switches. But together, they unlock new skills such as a double jump, which is only available when Otto is in Albert’s bag, levitation, control of electrical currents, and more as the story unfolds.

Albert & Otto was created by K Bros Games, and was released on Steam on October 28th.
