The Floor is Jelly is a 2D platformer from Ian Snyder with music by none other than Disasterpeace, the same composer behind the likes of FEZ and Runner2. This charming little game is set to release next week on the PC and Mac platforms, and today’s launch trailer delights in all the right ways.
Imagine if the world of Super Meat Boy was bouncy instead of goopy, and that’s what you’ve got rolling through my head when I look at The Floor is Jelly.
When the game launches next week, it will be available on both the Humble Store and thefloorisjelly.com, with the latter actually boasting this description of the game.
Who hasn’t dreamt, at some point, of filling a pool full of jello and swimming in it? In some of us, that dream never died. Some of us kept dreaming: what if the whole street was jello? Or the continent? The world!? The Floor is Jelly posits a universe made of jello, made purely for one’s own amusement. No longer need we look to our walls and our floors and sigh, “How solid! How sadly immalleable! How I wish for a world consisting only of Non-Newtonian fluids!” That world has arrived, via the dark magic of videogames, as The Floor is Jelly.
Strange? Yes. But we love it.
If you get our hands on a copy at launch, we’ll be sure to post a preview for the title in video form. Until then, who else played “the floor is lava” growing up?
