According to the plot, the American company Harmonics invents an apparatus for manipulating the mass of the environment EMMA (The Environmental Mass Manipulation Apparatus), which allows you to control gravity.

Players take on the role of BBC US Lieutenant Daniel Tekasi, who arrives at Harmonics HQ on January 1st, 2000 to test EMMA.

EMMA lets you grab and throw objects, change their gravity, and “freeze” them in mid-air. After shooting his feet, the character flies to the ceiling – this is also useful when solving puzzles.

The makers of PUNT from American LunchHouse Software promise a retrofuturistic world (2000 in the eyes of 70’s people), a 2-4 hour story campaign and Steam Workshop support shortly after release.

Since 2015, PUNT has seen several reboots and has been reborn from a modification to Portal to a standalone commercial product. The current iteration is co-built by LunchHouse Software Winter 2019 based on past work.

PUNT is expected to be released on Steam later this year. The Valve Services page has approximate system requirements, screenshots (shown below), and the 2-minute gameplay video from February 4 attached above.
