February, a month simultaneously characterized by bitter weather and blooming romance, is a charmingly fitting release period for the upcoming Degrees of Separation. Developed by studio Moondrop, Degrees of Separation has players traversing a luminous world either singly or with a friend, alternately transforming the backdrop into a frostbitten landscape or a summertime panorama. According to Moondrop:
“Degrees of Separation is a puzzle platformer where cooperation is built into every move. Two contrasting souls, Ember and Rime, fall in love, but are separated by an enigmatic force, and must use their powers to progress through a spectacular world of fantasy and adventure.”
Puzzle your way through a swath of platforming sections as they alter based on whether Ember or Rime are the predominant characters. Degrees of Separation is currently planned for a release on PS4 come February 14, with other consoles looking promising, but has no specified release date for its Steam launch as of yet.
