Hi Desura community! :)

I'm proud to announce that the full version of my game "Rico - A Tale Of Two Brothers" is finally released! It's available for Windows, Mac and Linux. And if you like to play on a mobile device, there's an Android version too!

Rico - A Tale Of Two Brothers is a retro inspired platformer that mixes elements from many great classics like Pitfall, Super Mario, Castlevania and Knytt with my own humble ideas. A game with a nostalgic feeling while still staying fresh. I wanted to create something I would have loved to play as a child and still love to play now!


Rico features 32 levels, boss battles, collectible crystals, numerous different enemies and traps, 4 difficulty levels and a catchy chiptune soundtrack by Bunnymajs!

If you're interested, head over to the Desura page to get it! There's also a demo version that lets you play the first 8 levels including the first boss fight for free, so why not try it out? :)

Thanks for your time!

You're on Linux I suppose? Have you tried running the jar file directly? Should be java -jar /home/ant/desura/common/ricoBeta.jar

There is an ancient saying: 'an game with jetpacks is good enough for me'.
So I'm certain this game will be good.

Jetpacks should be part of every game! :D

Totally agree that is why I added jetpacks to Monopoly.
Well it wasn't for normal Monopoly it was for rich person Monopoly because why the **** not?
I must say though Jetpack Football Manager 2013 kind of failed but I don't think it was because of the jetpacks.
