The thrift shop "One Hundred Denarii" is about to close and the tired owner is locking up after the last customer leaves, but suddenly there is chatter coming from inside the supposedly empty store. The tools at the shop have stories to tell and in REEDEN, players get to experience those stories in a unique and fascinating way.
In this game, players become the tools themselves, such as Jo, who was once an arrow, or Bi, who was made from a recycled kunai. Even Cal, the knife, was made from iron ore similar to that used in bullets. These everyday items are transformed into heroes of legend throughout the game's various levels.
REDDEN has been an exhibition piece at several gaming events and was even an honorable mention at IGF China in 2015. The game offers a beautiful and unique world that symbolizes the features of each object, with thirty-three historic scenes from ancient, medieval, and modern times, all witnessed through the eyes of the tools.
The game's controls are simple but challenging, relying on quick instincts to avoid obstacles and hit targets. Players can use intuitive gameplay by dragging the screen or tilting their device. They need to destroy objects in their path to move forward and raise their speed and skills.
Each of the three characters, Jo, Bi, and Cal, has its own unique skills, including spinning, creating clones, and blowing up their surroundings. However, players need to use these skills wisely to complete each episode successfully.
As players progress through the game's many stages, they'll be guided by the actions and introspections of the tools, leading to a story of beautiful moving illustrations. The long tale shared by these once-forgotten tools will make for a truly fantastical and magical experience.
