Living liquid machines have overrun this world of unstoppable progress, and it is the role of their inventor, Arkwright, to stop the chaos they are causing. Vessel is a game about a man with the power to bring ordinary matter to life, and all the consequences that ensue.
A puzzle platformer about solving puzzles with liquid physics.
I found it had a similar vibe to Braid but is rougher around the edges. It is very much a worst looking, shallower, Braid. The game is great, but if you take too close of a look at the graphics they do come off as hurried and very rough and the puzzles as far too shallow. But none of these failures are really noticable without a magnifying glass.
