By all rights, Cordy normally wouldn't be featured here. The Unity-based platformer from Silvertree Media is short, incomplete, and borrows freely from games with much larger budgets. It's also an amazing piece of work that just might change your opinions of what browser-based games are capable of.
You guide the TV-headed hero through lush 3D environments, using either the [left] and [right] [arrow] keys or the [A] and [D] buttons, using [up] or [spacebar] to jump. The goal is to reach the door at the end of each level, through pushing buttons, climbing up ledges, and using every part of the environment to your advantage. Controls are fairly solid, and the gameplay is plenty fun, but the thing you're most likely to notice is the graphics. We've seen some great things done with Unity in the past, but this is really in a whole new league. The animations are incredibly fluid, and the backgrounds seamlessly blend natural and mechanical elements for an experience unlike any other.
Anybody who's played the hit Playstation 3 game Little Big Planet is sure to notice more than a passing resemblance here. But rather than adapt an advanced console game into a more simplistic version, Cordy tries to go the other way, by pushing the medium almost until it breaks, leaving us with an unparallelled browser experience. The one obvious downfall of Cordy lies in the length, or rather, lack thereof. With only two brief levels, it will probably take you longer to load the game than it will to complete it. In fact, with the gorgeous graphics, captivating gameplay, and and relative brevity, it almost seems like less of an actual game and more of a showcase for what the Unity platform is capable of. But it's a very GOOD showcase, and with promises of more to come, this is definitely one to keep your eye on. I predict big things from these guys in the near future.
