Spirit of Glace, a reboot of 2004 platformer 'Glance' announced for Switch

Take a glace at this

Tommy Visic, creator of the hugely popular 2004 platformer Glace today announces its reinvention, Spirit of Glace, with a debut trailer.

Spirit of Glace is not a sequel, but a complete reboot and expansion of the original adventure, refreshed with community feedback, gorgeous pixel art, an open world, and fast-paced, reinvented platforming gameplay.

Previously reviewed as “one of the greatest freeware game[s] of all time.” “a platformer that harks back to the golden days of Super Nintendo.” and even described by Coin Arcade as their “favourite indie games of all-time.” – Visic’s 2004 title Glace was played by millions, and Spirit of Glace looks to embrace that nostalgia, and use it in making a successor that draws on classic 80’s gaming for a contemporary audience.

Creator and lead developer Tommy Visic said “It’s been so much fun hearing from fans of the game over the years, and I always wanted to go back and revisit the world of Glace.

I can’t express how honored I am to learn there’s still a community of players who love Glace and want to rally behind the new project. I draw so much inspiration from them.”
