I have already written about Fracter a couple of times in the last few months, including a recent hands-on with the game that left me feeling very impressed. At the time of publication, it was still unknown exactly what date would be chosen for the official release. All I had to go on was a tentative "summer" target. Well, as of this morning ,4L Games has announced that Fracter will be released on July 13th, and if you take a quick look at your calendar, you'll notice that the 13th falls on a Friday this month.
Now that we know when Fracter will hit the Play Store, it might be a good idea to check out the newly released trailer I linked above. This way you can get a sense of what the game has to offer. From the limited access provided to me by the devs, what I have played through mainly reminds me of the mechanics found in Monument Valley, but with less of a focus on item manipulation, and more of a focus on stealthy movement as you try to go about solving each puzzle while avoiding enemies. The black and white graphics lend themselves well to the eerie atmosphere, and the touchscreen controls get the job done without too many problems.
The official release date of Fracter is July 13th, and it will be priced at $3.99 on the Play Store when it goes live. Luckily, the 13th isn't that far off, and the fact that it falls on a Friday just serves to make me all the more excited. Sometimes you have to take pleasure in the small things, and as goofy as a game release on Friday the 13th may seem, the kid in me can't wait to crawl into my cozy bed to take in Fracter's creepy atmosphere while working my way through its devious puzzles.
