What is Skully?
Skully follows the story of a small skull that’s washed up on the shores of a mysterious island. After being awoken by an unknown deity, Skully must adventure around the island and solve different environmental puzzles. The deity isn’t doing this for free though, as they expect you to help them with a small problem. That problem being a war between siblings. You’ll adventure through the island and create different clay monsters in order to aid you on your quest. Some clay monsters will lift platforms, while others will handle enemies. It’ll be up to you to figure out how to use them and solve challenging puzzles in this rolly platformer.
“We’re really excited to share Skully with the world,” said the CEO of Finish Line Games. “its heroic journey of a seemingly unimposing character destined to accomplish great things.”. Overall, initial impressions make the game seem pretty fun. They’re taking advantage of the clay monster mechanic well with the ability to combine them. It’s an inspiring story too, showing that even the smallest things can accomplish quite fantastic feats. We’re interested in Skully, and we hope you are too.
