Since its launch in 2019, the puzzle-platformer OCO has become a huge hit on mobile platforms, garnering critical acclaim and multiple award nominations from outlets such as Google Play and Pocket Gamer, being among the most downloaded games in the main App Stores.
Supported by all these accolades, PC players will now get the chance to try this clever and intuitive title on their own, as SPECTRUM48’s stylish game will arrive to Steam, along with tons of content made by its developers and community.
OCO: Gameplay details and development
OCO is a title that focuses on patience, insight, and precision, as players have to control a tiny square and jump around insanely unique levels collecting pellets to complete stages.
The game is packed with 180 hand-crafted stages, beautifully designed and specifically made to learn and play OCO at its best, as well as getting used to the sensitive procedural soundtrack changes depending on how you play the game.
Besides, its biggest feature is its simple and powerful level editor, where players from all around the world have created more than 75,000 levels to try.
If you are more competitive, you can also be part of weekly contests through its Olympus mode, where the best players from around the world compete to reach the top spots in “Speedrun” and “Endurance” categories, to become the “God of Olympus”, a title that only one player will be able to hold at a time.
“In OCO we wanted to create a minimalist experience which is extremely playable but also cerebral and challenging,” said Philip Sinclair, lead game designer at SPECTRUM48 in a press release for Gamasutra.
OCO: Recommended system specifications
Surprisingly, the recommended specs for OCO are on the low-end spectrum, meaning everyone will have the opportunity to try it, even if they don’t have the most powerful PCs.
Minimum PC requirements:
- OS: Windows 7 (32-bit) / Mac OS X 10.7
- Processor: Intel i5 1.8Ghz
- Memory: 4 GB RAM
- Graphics: 512 MB video card
- Storage: 200 MB available space
As of now, only a PC release has been announced for this enigmatic title, however we wouldn’t be surprise if a console version is announced later on, as its simplicity makes its a perfect game for both casual and hardcore players.
OCO: Release date and trailer
Take a look at the trailer of the game, where you can discover more about its gameplay, and why not, convince yourself to enjoy it on your own.
“We’ve had a great experience on mobile platforms and are now hyped to see how hardcore Steam players engage with the competitive element in terms of leaderboards and our challenges, we’re also excited to see how these new players will interact with the level editor and what kind of levels they will create!”, concluded Philip Sinclair.
OCO will be available on 12th August 2021 on PC via Steam for £3.99 / €3.99 / $4.99.
