Swedish indie developer Wimasima has revealed Block Em, a new platformer and puzzle game. It is scheduled to release on consoles and PC in 2022.
Wimasima couldn’t wait to share details about their big 2022 project, Block Em, after joining the Aurora Punks collective last month. Block Em is a fast-paced block-building party game for two to four players. The controls are simple, but the path to success is difficult: be the first to reach the objective or be the last one standing. Block Em, most interestingly, combines platforming and puzzles.
The Wimasima team wishes to return to the simplicity of older games while adding a modern twist. The team members come from various backgrounds and have a wide range of interests in life and the gaming world. This distinct mixture is their strength since they want to produce games for the broadest possible audience.
“We started creating Block Em as a school project late last year. After winning all the prizes we could win in the school competition, we wanted to share the gaming experience to a broader audience,” shared Winston Spångberg, Wimasima co-founder.
He adds: “Block Em is about immediate fun for all ages, both at home and at a party. We want to invoke a feeling of joy and excitement by adding retro-inspired controls that are easy to learn yet hard to master into a modern multiplayer platform, and our hope is that players will feel encompassed in our vision!”
You can build, jump and push the rest of the players to conquest victory, but be careful. All players can undo each other’s progress. Block Em supports up to four players for each game in local and online multiplayer. So gather some friends, challenge them, or duke it within the family.
