Updated on October 18th, at 11:22pm: RETSNOM's mix of zombie shooting and level-manipulating puzzle platforming is available on the App Store and Google Play.
In between some slight zombie action and narrative, you use special mirror powers to warp and twist the levels around you to reach each stage's exit.

The game is on sale for £0.79 / $0.99 for a limited time.


It's a great month for games this October. From scary, Halloween-appropriate titles to games like RETSNOM which will shortly be coming out for iOS and Android.

Some of you might have heard it before, some of you might not have, but it was a well-loved and quite frankly under-valued title on Steam a year back. Somi Games and Magic Cube Software are now joining forces to bring the game to touchscreen.

Its beautiful pixelated art-style works wonderfully for the tone of RETSNOM. You play as a father trying desperately to save your daughter from a zombie virus. The only way to do so is to head into the future and steal the medicine made by your colleagues. But it's not going to be that easy, your colleagues are playing the world's worst game of hide and seek in a maze filled with mirrors. Can you figure out how to get in and out in time to save your daughter's life?

RETSNOM reeks of Limbo. Not in a very obvious way, but rather in its mood and emotion. Despite its basic pretence you can definitely see the potential in this platformer that maybe things won't work out too well: maybe from the claustrophobic level design; maybe from the magnificent melancholy of a single cello resonating through the trailer. Maybe it's just a feeling.

There's no confirmed release date as of yet but we know that it'll be out before the end of October. Either way, we'll keep you updated when we know more.
