 PRESS RELEASE

PUZZLE GAME “PARCEL” ENTERS EARLY ACCESS – NOW AVAILABLE ON STEAM

Joensuu, Finland – 26th of March 2015

Finnish game developer Polar Bunny Ltd is excited to announce that their atmospheric multi-character puzzle game, Parcel, is now available for Win/Mac/Linux on Steam Early Access. The game is co-published with Frozenbyte, the developer behind the award-winning Trine series. Parcel initially passed Steam Greenlight™ in 2014 with flying colors. Valuable feedback from Early Access players will be used to refine the final product due to be released later in 2015. The game can be bought for $9.99 / 9.99 € from the game’s Steam store page:

Parcel is a cyberpunk puzzle game where the player has to solve interlocking laser puzzles using the unique abilities of different characters. The game can be played alone or cooperatively with friends, and already features over 120 fully playable puzzles. A level editor is also included, enabling the amount of playable content to grow within the community. The story of the game follows the adventures of a 22nd century postage company and touches on subjects such as post-humanism (pun very much intended) and virtual reality, with the full intent of boggling the players’ minds with questions about the future.

Utilizing the powers of the team of peculiar postpeople – block-pushing, magnetization, hacking and teleportation – players will progress down a heavily guarded tower with increasingly complex puzzles. Packed with intellectual challenge and “the right kind of frustration”, Parcel aims to be a memorable puzzling experience that will make players think and leave them thinking afterwards.

“After years of dreaming and tireless work towards fulfilling that dream, Parcel is finally shaping up to be the game it deserves to be,” said the project’s creative director Pyry Takkunen and continued: “A couple of years ago, this game existed only on graph paper, and to see it enter daylight is both enormously humbling and scary at the same time. I sincerely hope that players on Steam enjoy what we’ve created and help us develop it further. A puzzling future awaits!”

Game features:

  • Over 120 levels of puzzling divided into numerous distinct sectors
  • 1-4 players – play the entire adventure alone or locally with friends!
  • Unique characters with their own interesting personalities and special powers to help you solve even the hardest challenges – or to complicate things further
  • A thought-provoking story about a not-so-unlikely future and its peculiar inhabitants – and a box
  • Gorgeous environments with atmospheric, colorful visuals
  • An extensive level editor with endless creation possibilities – make your own puzzles and challenge the world!

Parcel aims to deliver its players a fantastic puzzle game experience like no other. The developers firmly believe that harnessing the creative spirit of the community is essential for Parcel, as there are literally millions of different mind-boggling puzzles that can be created with the character and level object combinations. Early Access will enable the development team to listen to community feedback and create the best possible way for players to puzzle each other!
