The team at orangutan matter announced their debut title Unleaving will make its way to Steam on March 27.
A 2D puzzle-platformer, Unleaving weaves together grounded physics and skill-based challenges. This unique fusion is then paired with a metaphoric abstract narrative that tasks players with pondering introspectively.
Unleaving is inspired by Gerard Manley Hopkins’ poem ‘Spring and Fall: To a Young Child:’
Márgarét, áre you gríeving
Over Goldengrove unleaving?
Leáves like the things of man, you
With your fresh thoughts care for, can you?
Ah! ás the heart grows older
It will come to such sights colder
By and by, nor spare a sigh
Though worlds of wanwood leafmeal lie;
And yet you wíll weep and know why.
Now no matter, child, the name:
Sórrow’s spríngs áre the same.
Nor mouth had, no nor mind, expressed
What heart heard of, ghost guessed:
It ís the blight man was born for,
It is Margaret you mourn for.
Gerard Manley Hopkins
