St. Louis, Missouri – September 20th, 2017 – Game designer Michael Hicks has announced his new title, The Path Of Motus, will come to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam in 2018. In this game you play as a goblin named Motus who's trying to build bridges through a forest; his village has been trapped inside for hundreds of years and he's determined to find a way out. However, his perseverance will soon be tested, as he meets bullies that use their own words to stop him. This is a game where words hurt.... literally. The Path of Motus features a verbal combat system where words destroy anything they come into contact with, as well as an innovative puzzle system designed to convey what Motus is feeling at various times in the story.

"Bullying is currently on the rise, so hopefully this game helps us have more empathy for each other," explains Hicks. "I want players to understand how it feels to be bullied, and explore ways of dealing with it through gameplay. Just like in real life, we always have a choice: we can use our words to inspire, or to destroy."
