Monday evening during the #IndiE3 livestream, the empathy-based platformer Cascata released on PC. Part arcade platformer, part co-op arena madness, Cascata’s release was a pleasant surprise to streamers who tuned into day 1 of the IndiE3 project. Cascata is a game that requires players to co-operate locally and empathize with one another in order to succeed.
Players will collect little diamonds to stop wavy death-lasers from obliterating their partner, as well as sacrifice their own counters to protect their partner from a game over. You can see how gameplay works for yourself in developer Fourthfloor’s charming “trailer” above.
IndiE3 is a brand new initiative to bring attention to indie games during the busiest time in gaming by livestreaming gameplay trailers, interviews, and panels from dozens of industry specialists.
