As an avid fan of the indie and third party game scene, it gives me great pleasure to report that IndiePub and Strange Loop Games have announced Vessel, a puzzle platformer centered around liquid physics.

In Vessel, you tackle puzzles by animating liquid (water, lava, chemicals, etc.) “into living machines called Fluros that retain all the properties of the liquid they contain.”

Naturally, the fluids can melt, reform, and do other things that fluids do to get around obstacles. This is one of those games that will likely make more sense when we have a video in front of us.

Vessel is heading to Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and PC.
