Flat Kingdom, the cute and compelling action platformer that launched on Steam a few years ago will be heading to PlayStation consoles this April 1st. When Flat Kingdom Paper’s Cut Edition launched on steam back in 2016 it garnered some decent review scores.
Now indie publisher Ratalaika Games, who are famous for games with easy Platinum trophies, are working with game developer Fat Panda Games to bring Flat Kingdom to PS4 and PS5.
When Flat Kingdom Paper’s Cut Edition launches on consoles on 1st April, console players will be able to experience the delight of “The Flat Kingdom” for themselves. It’s a beautiful and peaceful 2D land that is threatened by an evil thief. And is starting to become a 3D world. Sounds like an interesting concept.
The developer describes Flat Kingdom as an action platformer with puzzle-styled combat in which you will have to switch shapes in order to gain different abilities that will help you progress in the game.
Combat is akin to Rock, Paper, Scissors, where each shape beats the opposite. Sharp triangles can beat soft circles, heavy squares beat the fragile triangles and squishy circles can triumph over the slow squares.
Both enemies and puzzles can be beaten using the correct shape and strategy. So you’ll have to observe them and come up with the best solution.
Flat Kingdom paper’s Cut Edition promises immersive gameplay as you explore different detailed worlds with confrontations against dangerous enemies. Huge bosses are waiting for you, but remember with three shapes you can beat them all!
Flat Kingdom Story
Here’s the gist of the story of Flat Kingdom, straight from the developer:
A long time ago, the Flat Kingdom was threatened by the wicked Third dimension. Just when all hope was lost, a wise sorcerer appeared and created six magical jewels, keeping the dimensions stable and restoring the peace. But one day, the masked thief Hex kidnapped the princess, also taking one of the jewels with him. That caused the 3D chaos to come back, putting the Kingdom in serious danger again.
When everything seemed to be lost, King Square thought about the only one who could fix this mess. His name was Flat, a little but brave 2D doodle-like creature that had the ability to change shapes at will, that way he can overcome all kinds of obstacles and beat the geometric foes.
And here are some of the game’s features:
- Music by composer Manami Matsumae (Mega man, Shovel Knight).
- Enchanting, endearing and colourful world!
- Learn about the kingdom and find hidden scrolls
- Plenty of secret areas and hidden surprises, collect coins to buy extra hearts and become even stronger!
- Much more…..
Flat Kingdom Paper’s Cut Edition is will launch on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on 1st April. Hopefully, the reception won’t be flat.
