5.0 out of 5 stars Great Indie Game November 15, 2012
Edition:Standard - Steam DRM
This game is really fun and pretty lengthy. It's got some really amazing water physics too which is fun to play with using the water cannon and the water-beings you can create. The puzzles are challenging and the AI of the water-beings is pretty impressive. The only problem is sometimes if there is a lot of water onscreen then it may start to lag a bit. Regardless of that it's a really great game and I would recommend it to anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Physics-based, Challenging Puzzle Platformer August 15, 2014
Edition:Standard - Steam DRM
You play as Arkwright, an inventor who manipulates his recent invention-a free labor/energy source. These so-called Fluros begin to evolve and affect the environment. It is fascinating to discover the different physical traits that emerge and their interaction with other elements within the game.

This is a good 10-hour long puzzle-platforming game. You get to explore above-ground through a mountainous region and below-ground through caves and Arkwright's lab (where you are able to access his many notes/observations from previous experiments). From cliffs to caverns, the world of Vessel is varied and atmospheric. Its liquid simulation technology is truly stunning (water, lava and goo...).

Though this appears to be a family-friendly game throughout, the ending could be shocking if you find implied spiritual undertones.

Edition:Standard - Steam DRM
Intriguing game, very refreshing. Though it has some platforming / action elements, it is primarily a puzzle game. The gameplay is challenging and original, and the "fluros" are a clever concept. Some have complained that the water physics is too "loose" - ie you might have the right idea for solving a puzzle, but still have to try a few times - but I actually liked that. It made the game feel more dirty and real. The audio is fantastic; everything from the minimalist electronic soundtrack by Jon Hopkins (here's the title track:Vessel)to the subtle sound effects and fluro 'voices' contribute to the game's ambiance. The graphics are good, and impress with great lighting and steampunk styling. If you are looking for something fresh and interesting, this is it. There's also a demo on Steam.
