Die Kugel rollt! BEAM ist ab sofort auf Steam verfügbar


Der Präzisions-Plattformer BEAM vom rheinland-pfälzischen Studio Binary Impact ist ab sofort auf Steam verfügbar. Es ist das erste Spiel des deutschen Entwicklerstudios und kann für 15,99€ erworben werden.

Wir schicken den Spieler in BEAM auf die Reise mit seiner Rettungskapsel auf den Weg zurück in die Zivilisation. Der Präzisions-Plattformer mit Puzzle-Elementen bietet über sieben Stunden kniffligen Spielspaß, bei dem der Spieler verschiedene Eigenschaften von Lichtstrahlen nutzen muss, um mit seiner Kugel die Level voller Physikrätsel zu meistern. Die dynamische 3D-Umgebung kombiniert mit einer 2,5D Spielmechanik und der einfachen Steuerung sorgen für abwechslungsreichen Spielspaß und einen schnellen Einstieg ins Spiel. Das Spiel ist ab sofort für 15,99€ auf Steam erhältlich.

Einen ersten Eindruck bietet der offizielle BEAM Trailer unter: https://youtu.be/NJBSShf8OVg

Auf der Reise durch zwei Hauptkapitel, die in einem jeweils ganz eigenen Grafikstil designed wurden, schlüpft der Spieler in die Rolle des angehenden Kapitäns Martin. Dieser hat soeben sein Raumschiff zum Absturz gebracht und muss nun mit der sprechenden, intelligenten, aber auch sehr vorlauten und frechen Rettungskapsel MARBLE den Weg aus dem Wrack hinausfinden. Die MARBLE kann dazu verschiedene Lichtstrahlen auf dem Raumschiff so verändern, dass die Kugel auf den Lichtstrahlen unter anderem rollen oder auf ihnen springen kann.

Genaues Hinsehen und Erkunden bei BEAM lohnt sich, denn es sind eine Menge Eastereggs und Secrets versteckt. Damit jeder seine eigene Herausforderung erstellen kann, ist außerdem ein eigener Level-Editor in Arbeit und soll demnächst im Rahmen eines kostenlosen Updates den Spielern zur Verfügung gestellt werden. Auch das dritte Kapitel des Spiels mit 10 neuen Level wird zeitnah kostenlos per Patch nachgeliefert.

Key Features:

  • Zwei Hauptkapitel mit mehr als 19 individuell gestalteten Leveln
  • Drittes Kapitel wird kostenlos per Patch nachgeliefert
  • Rund 8 Stunden Spielzeit (mit dem 3. Kapitel über 10 Stunden)
  • Physik-Rätsel in einer dynamischen Umgebung
  • Eastereggs und Secrets zum Entdecken
  • Mehr als 50 Achievements
  • Eigener Level-Editor wird zeitnah zur Verfügung gestellt

Version 0.1.0b8


A lot has changed in the last couple of months. This includes improved graphics, the fantastic work of our voice talents, a new, more minimalistic, user interface and much more. The demo will include the first three levels as they will be in the game later (mostly). Complete with story dialogues, lighting, music and everything that a game should have.

We are aiming to add two more levels the week after. Your first run will probably take about an hour for all five levels.

This demo will, other than bugfixes, not receive any more changes after.

We initially planed to show Beam at a lot of conventions, exhibitions and events. Unfortunately the Corona situation made it impossible. But with a bunch of very nice and entertaining content creators streaming Beam on Twitch you will still be able to see the game in action. Also keep an eye out for more YouTube coverage in the coming days!

Speaking of the pandemic situation, we want to assure you, all eight members of our team are safe and working from home. This will hopefully have no effect on the release plans.

If you have any questions regarding Beam, you can directly reach our community manager Zinni by mail (thomasz@binaryimpact.de), join our Discord or send a DM in one of our socials.

Patch Notes Version 0.0.1a25


This patch will also be the version you can play at Herofest 2019 come by our booth! We are also showing of the game in Cologne at the Indie Game Fest.

We took the incoming feedback from our social media channels and also what you had to say while playing the game on the EGX in Berlin two weeks ago.
We added a complete new section to Level 6 which makes it the biggest yet. This alone will add another 10 minutes to our demo, putting it close to one and a half hour.

As always we are very happy to receive your ideas and feedback.
