A lot of bygone genres have been making comebacks in recent years, like adventure games or fighting games, but a particular style of game has not yet made a return to the limelight. In today's terms, games like Out of This World, Heart of Darkness, or Flashback might be described as combinations of adventure games and puzzle platformers, but even that description is missing something that defines the titles.
Developer PlayWay noticed that games in this style are hard to come by these days, and it intends to change that. The Way takes players on a journey through space to find a means to bring a loved one back to life. The protagonist has the will; he needs to find the way.
Less than a day into its campaign, The Way is currently doing pretty well for itself on Kickstarter, and is also seeking approval on Steam Greenlight.
