Description

Magnetic drops players into the role of a prisoner serving time for past crimes in a vast, ever-changing prison with chambers that shift in random patterns. The players are given a special magnetic gun, and are urged on by a sadistic warden controlling the complex. By manipulating and mastering magnetic forces, they must find a way out – but no choice is without consequence in Facility 7, where each chamber offers a unique challenge ranging from classic puzzles to moral choices. With countless puzzles to solve and a branching storyline, no playthrough is ever the same in Magnetic.

History

Guru Games was founded in 2013 by a group of enthusiastic students from the Skövde. We have worked on several projects, both big and small, the main one being Magnetic: Cage Closed, which was released in the summer of 2015 on Steam and later in August 2015 on XBOX One as well.

Features

  • Unique Tool - The magnet gun is a unique tool that can transform the environment, launch you through the air or assist with complicated box puzzles
  • Diversity - The challenges in Magnetic come in many forms, and blend logical puzzles with skill based movement in a unique combination
  • No playthrough is the same - Each choice has an impact on what comes next. New secrets and paths are just waiting for players to find them

About Guru Games

Boilerplate
Guru Games is an independent game company working out of Skövde, Sweden. There are currently 4 members on our team and our goal is to create intense, story-focused experiences and games that you will play through in an evening but think about for a week. We want to leave players with something more than a short action extravaganza, we want to make them think about their actions within the virtual worlds that we create. We design our games in a way that let’s them choose their own path, but forces them to face the consequences of the choices they make. We believe that games should respect the players time and commitment, and therefore we focus on creating short games of high quality for busy people.
