Albert & Otto is a story about a boy and a magical bunny who journey together and solve puzzles in order to get back what was taken from them. Albert and Otto work together to overcome challenges thrown their way. We soon learn however that what seemed at first like a journey to save the damsel in distress is anything but and that our hero Albert might be hiding something dark.
A 2D Physics based cinematic platformer, the game requires the player to solve a series of puzzles with his sidekick. Albert and Otto must work together to solve puzzles. They cannot wander too far from each other however, Albert must use Otto in creative ways, such as leaving him to hold down a switch, press a button or push a lever while Albert executes his own actions simultaneously in order to get them both through the puzzle. The player is mainly in control of Albert but he may control Otto to an extent, such as using him to power a generator.
