4 ELEMENTS, BOUND TOGETHER ON A JOURNEY FOR LIFE
Element4l is a immersive and experimental platform game, with a strong focus on flow and smooth gameplay, wrapped in an exceptional soundtrack by MindTree.
In Element4l, you control four elements who are bound together on a journey to shape life. Your only hindrances are nature and the sun. It takes a different, experimental approach to classic platform games and challenges you to rearrange your reflexes.
The state-changing, physics-based gameplay invites all ages to think logically, and reveals that pressing the right button at the right time, is often more rewarding than mashing buttons.
Element4l is a challenge. The first time you play it, you will struggle… just like the first time you’ve learned how to ride a bike.

Is there going to be a console, iOS, Android, Linux version? If element4l is a success, we will continue development and there will probably be other versions too, yes (let’s hope!). It’s a lot of work to port a game to console, and don’t forget the paperwork and other boring stuff…
