Earn Your Wings and Take Flight in Jeppe Carlson’s Newest Puzzle-Platformer, Cocoon
Some of you might remember a couple of puzzle-platformers with much darker themes named Inside and Limbo. Those two platforming masterpieces were spearheaded by the incredibly talented Jeppe Carlson, and he strikes yet again with a trailer for an equally surreal experience called Cocoon. From what we can see in the trailer, one of the big mechanics is using a colorful, moth-like creature to carry around powered orbs that trigger parts of the puzzles in the environment, starting elevators and unfurling bridges. Not only that, but, according to the official webpage (which you can see here), each world exists within those orbs, and you can use these orbs to combine, manipulate, and move them around to solve the in-game puzzles. While there’s still not too much we can glean from this game, it’s already looking pretty out-there and fascinating, like Limbo and Inside before it. Cocoon will be released in 2023 for Xbox, Steam, and Nintendo Switch.
Take a glean inside the Cocoon trailer down below, and let us know what you think of Jeppe Carlson’s new project!
