Flem Announced for the Vita

By Cindy Minguez, 4 years ago
When I first saw the title https://www.truetrophies.com/FLEM/trophies.htm and learned that it was from a Norwegian developing team, I'm thinking, "ah, Flem, some Norse-type hero." Um...that would be a no. Instead think of the alternative spelling of that word...pleghm. Yes, pleghm, as in mucous, membraneous liquid, the gooey stuff you blow out of your head when you have a cold. Yeah...yuck.

And that yuck is exactly what Flem is about. Here's the story:

FLEM offers classic 2D platforming with a speedrun focus. The booger ball Flem is stranded in a strange new world after the calamity of the Great Sneeze and must find his lost people in the Land Of Eternal Tissue.

In FLEM, players must run and jump through short and challenging levels while avoiding the hostile environment and may also attempt to beat the time trials for every level while doing so. Later levels introduces Flem's hidden snot powers, including the ability to turn into a cloud and fly in short bursts.

· Easy to learn, hard to master platforming.
· 40 levels over four seasons to run, jump, dash and fly through.
· Time trials, medals and leaderboards for every level.
· Cheery 8-bit inspired soundtrack.
· Pixels!

Thankfully, in this retro-feeling platformer, Flem is a cute little booger. The game is due out before the end of the year.
