BackgroundIn Vessel, players take on the role of Arkwright, a renowned inventor whose inventions – living liquid creatures known as Fluros – have gone awry, turning on their users and disrupting machinery throughout the world. To fix the flawed Fluros and restore order, players must create, manipulate and destroy a wide variety of Fluros and operate complex machinery to solve challenging puzzles. Vessel takes players on an exploratory adventure through four fascinating worlds, fixing the work sites where Fluros are employed and ultimately leading the player to complete his next great invention, “The Device.”
Game PlayBuilt on a groundbreaking liquid-physics engine, Vessel will allow players to solve puzzles by bringing to life physically-simulated liquid (water, lava, glowing goo, chemicals and more) by animating them into living machines called Fluros that retain all the properties of the liquid they contain. Using the unique technology of the Vessel engine, these liquid creatures are like no other character in video games; each possesses a body composed entirely of physically simulated fluid that allows them unique abilities that include melting, reforming, mixing with other types of fluid, and re-growing lost limbs. Combining the properties of each fluid type with the behaviors of the liquid creatures that it comprises, players will be able solve puzzles and progress in this fantastic mechanical world.
