Letters become puzzle pieces in minimalist physics puzzler Supertype

Kamibox has been releasing an array of clever minimalist puzzlers over the last few years, between Zip-Zap, Cmplt, and others, and that trend looks to continue with the reveal of Supertype. The letter-based puzzler might also be the developer's most unique concept yet.

Visually, Supertype may seem similar to games like Super Sharp and Sugar Sugar - manipulating objects to reach certain collectibles on each stage - but mechanically, its alphabet system looks wholly original. Rather than dragging blocks or slicking shapes and ropes, Supertype asks you to type letters onto the stage, which then physically interact with the environment. As demonstrated by the trailer, narrow Ls fall through gaps and act like dominoes, Ms swing on pegs, rounded letters flop and tumble down slopes. You'll need to consider unique attributes of each letter and how they could interact with eachother and the design of the levels to solve Supertype's challenges.

Supertype doesn't have a definite release date yet, but is expected to release sometime this year. You can follow Kamibox and future news regarding Supetype through the developer's Facebook page.
