Freedom Planet is a combat-based platform adventure that pits a spunky dragon girl and her friends against an alien attack force. There's trouble around every turn, from insects to giant robots to sheer explosive destruction, but you'll have a variety of special fighting abilities to blast your way through each stage
As Lilac, you can use Dragon powers to whip enemies with your hair, spin like a cyclone, or fly through the air at high speed like a comet.
As Carol, you can bust through foes with a flurry of punches and kicks or summon motorcycles that let you ride up walls and ceilings.
Here's some of the things you can do in the full version of the game:
It's been a wild ride so far, and we can't thank you guys enough for your support! We've been enjoying a warm reception since our release back in July, and the game has received some awesome feedback from all over the interwebs:
“Freedom Planet is an emotional, comedic and fun fast-paced platformer that will keep you on your toes and wary of incoming dangers.”
5/5 – Gamerscape
“Freedom Planet is well-written love letter to the sixteen-bit era, reminding players of the power of the action-platformer. Expect to be serenaded by the splendid soundtrack.”
81/100 – Tech-Gaming
“Freedom Planet is like a missing jewel from the Sega Saturn catalog, an amazing action game that can be described a (good) Sonic 2D game developed by Treasure. Don't miss it-- along with Shovel Knight, it's the retro-indie game of the year.”
8.5/10 – Meristation
Of course, the adventure won't stop here! We are continuing to work on our promised stretch goals from our Kickstarter campaign. Eventually, we will be releasing an expansion that adds Spade and Torque as playable characters, adding a whole new experience to your favorite levels!
Commander Torque is first on our to-do list. His gameplay revolves around the use of different long-ranged weapons, which you can mix and match between each stage. Each weapon comes in 3 types - Buster, Bomb and Flyer - as well as 5 elements - Wood, Earth, Water, Fire and Metal. This gives Torque up to 15 different weapon combinations to choose from, each of which is effective in certain situations or against specific enemies and bosses. Fans of Contra or Gunstar Heroes should feel right at home playing as Torque!
We're not quite sure yet when the new characters will be ready for testing, but we'll keep everyone posted!

@dominictarason Fusion is also a good choice. Both Five Nights at Freddy's and Freedom Planet used it afterall.

Excited to visit Boston again! Even though PAX East will be our third con ever, I still feel like I have no idea what to expect, haha.

My personal knowledge of engine strengths: Game Maker / Construct / Fusion for small 2D, Unity for big 2D and 3D, and Unreal for big 3D.

Even for 3D, the minimum system requirements for Unreal games are higher than Unity and other software. Just something to keep in mind.
