B-Deshi Interactive and publisher Brain Station 23 Limited released their puzzle game, Control: Override, that shares control between the player and the environment. In a battle against a rogue AI players get a colorful journey into the depths of cyberspace through a 2D platformer.
As a hacker, players hack into a rogue AI. The goal is to terminate the AI that the hacker had previously created. In order to breakthrough the various AI’s security layers, players will need to solve puzzles. With each success the hacker will advance closer and closer to the core. Upon reaching the core, the hacker can then terminate the rogue program and might even learn the truth about why the AI went rogue.
The minimalist neon style of the game offers physics defying puzzles. While the game’s mechanics may seem simple, they will on occasion have unexpected consequences. Problem solving is an iterative process so with the rewind mechanic players can go back and fix their mistakes. There are multiple game endings for the intriguing story that form a jigsaw puzzle-like narrative for the hacker that hacked his own AI.
Control: Override is available on Windows PC through Steam and Itch.io for $2.99 USD. A demo is also available on both platforms for players to try before buying. A launch discount of 10% is available on Steam until April 27, 2021. For more information about Control: Override follow @ControlOverride on Twitter or visit the game’s website here.
