Well, this looks like it could be a magical little game. The Girl and the Robot is launching on Steam next week, and it really reminds me of Ico.
While not exactly one big escort mission, The Girl and the Robot is a game about a girl trying to escape a castle while being hunted down by a queen and her army. The girl pairs with a robot, and players will be able to swap between the two to combat enemies and solve puzzles.
Simple enough, right?
The art style is really great, though I’ll admit the animation and world looks a touch lackluster. I’m not one to let those factors drag an otherwise quality experience down, though, so The Girl and the Robot has my attention.
The title will launch on Steam on August 18. The price hasn’t been listed yet, though I can’ imagine this costing too much.
