Well we have the game finished for PC,LINUX and MAC. But now there are a ton of additional features!
We will now have a selectable 8-bit or 16-bit soundtrack, all side quests are in game and some are mandatory in order to progress through stages of the game, 6 hidden selectable weapons for Thurstan and 3 for Finn!

So with the addition of the mandatory quests, the game got a lot longer. We have about 9 new playable stages on top of the original 16! New bosses, new items... tons of stuff!!

The demo is only single player but contains the first Island in the game which has 4 main stages and 3 side quests! Instructions are in the files. Please report any bugs to info@causalbitgames.com


Thank you for your patience and the release is coming next week!!

Do you have enough funding for a Wii U version, or why did you add it to the list of target platforms?

We were approved by Nintendo for development on Wii U just recently! We will be releasing the game on Wii U.

Awesome, reminds me NES past yeasr of glory.
Ideas like surfing moutain down on monster backs is great :)

On two last pictures, the boss or background seems to have been made in photoshop, it looks no more retro pixel and the mix with character retro pixel look is now strange.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks! Funny you said GnG, I've just added a nod to the puking ogre guys! My pukers are nuns in the church stage though and they can puke towards you, not just down! Thanks for the kind comments!

For some reason it reminds me a lot of Legendary Axe from the PC Engine TurboGrafx 16. Nice work guys real nice pro feel to the design.

Thanks! When I was a kid I always thought Legendary Axe was too much like an Nintendo game (aside of bigger graphics). But it's one my favorite TG16 games now! Thank you for the kind words!!
