Find Hope Within the Hopeless
PHILADELPHIA, PA–September 20, 2021 || Screenwave Media Games and Mokuzai Studio are excited to announce the December 7th, 2021 release of LOVE 3. As fiveEight, face challenging obstacles, discover hidden secrets, and try to find hope within the hopeless through precision platforming and exploration.
ABOUT THE GAME
With a minimalist aesthetic evocative of retro titles, LOVE 3 immediately announces itself as an addictive and modern challenge for today’s gamers. You control fiveEight, a lone survivor searching for others in a mechanical, apocalyptic world, through 25 precision platforming levels of cogs, spikes, keys, bumpers, and beyond. What you find in the overlooked corners of these levels will influence fiveEight’s ultimate fate, so make sure to leave no step, switch, or meandering path unturned regardless of the obstacles in your way.
LOVE 3 is ideal for speedrun competitions, as the timing of every jump determines the accuracy (or inaccuracy) of your landing. Other mechanics, such as a custom respawn system, allow for a personalized journey through each labyrinth. With a vivid tricolor scheme, satisfying SFX, and a new soundtrack by James Bennett, LOVE 3 is sure to provoke your senses as much as it does your skills.
ABOUT THE LOVE SERIES
The first LOVE was originally released on Steam in 2014 and later received a Nintendo Switch release. Just like LOVE 3, LOVE is a short and addictive challenge set against the backdrop of minimalist design. The game contains a custom respawn system, 16 levels, 12 original songs, competitive scoring, and multiple ways to play. As long as a player is on solid ground, they can leave a checkpoint at any moment during their run. Beyond the visual aesthetic and unique mechanics, James Bennett’s soundtrack completes the vibrancy in the simplistic three-color atmosphere.
LOVE 2: kuso was launched on Steam in 2017 and received a considerable free content update when it was released a year later on Nintendo Switch. It follows suit with the franchise and provides players with a fair challenge to complete and master. Packed with 41 stages, players run, jump, and leave their own checkpoint through acid, disappearing platforms, giant saws, and more. James Bennett collaborates once more with developer Fred Wood to create an auditory experience as tight as the controls.
