Filthy Grip Releases New Feist Trailer

Indie Developer Filthy Grip released a new trailer for their flagship title Feist today. If you haven’t heard of Fiest, you’re not alone. The game first made news back in 2008 after entering the Unity Awards competition, winning Best Overall Game and Best Visual Design. The title later went on to score a nomination for the Excellence in Visual Arts award in the Independent Games Festival. We previewed Feist in our Indie Week shortly after. 

Feist hasn’t been in the news much since then, but we’ve been keeping an eye on it regardless. Gameplay mechanics are still enigmatic, but the visuals are more than enough to keep us interested. Thick black shapes dominate in Feist, contrasted by super-saturated colors in the background. Unfolding in high mountains and thick forests, the result is something that resembles an eternal twilight. The player controls a ball of fuzz that could be an animal of sorts, complete with human-like appendages and  a little black trail that mirror's its movements. Feist appears to have its roots in the puzzle and platform genres, with foes taking the form of beasts and sentient vegetation – all disturbing with their oddly white eyes and Cheshire grins.

Feist doesn’t yet have a release date, but is in development for both PC and Mac. We will keep you up to date as soon as more information becomes available. Until then, check out the official site for two previously released trailers and a handful of screens
