Portal TheGamer noticed that the page of PUNT, a retrofuturistic first-person puzzle game that grew out of a modification to Portal, appeared in the Steam digital distribution service.
According to the plot, the American company Harmonics invents an apparatus for manipulating the mass of the environment EMMA (The Environmental Mass Manipulation Apparatus), which allows you to control gravity.
Players take on the role of US BBC Lieutenant Daniel Tekasi, who arrives at Harmonics headquarters on January 1, 2000 to test EMMA.
With EMMA you can grab and throw objects, change their gravity, «freeze» them in the air. After shooting at his feet, the character will fly up to the ceiling — this is also useful when solving puzzles.
The creators of PUNT from the American LunchHouse Software promise a retrofuturistic world (2000 in the eyes of the people of the 70s), a 2-4 hour story campaign and Steam Workshop support soon after release.
Since 2015, PUNT has experienced several reboots and has been reborn from a modification to Portal into an independent commercial product. The current iteration has been created by LunchHouse Software since the winter of 2019 based on past developments.
The release of PUNT is expected throughout the current year on Steam. The page in the Valve service contains approximate system requirements, screenshots (see below) and the almost two-minute gameplay video from February 4 attached above.
