Spirit Huntress is a 2-D sidescrolling platformer with adventure and rpg elements, featuring exploration and intense combats. You play as Hibari, a young Kunoichi learning the secret art of "soul purging", as she travels around a world full of fierce beasts possessed by angry spirits. Your goal is to set the world free of these dangerous creatures, using an arsenal of ancient ninja weapons you will discover gradually through the game, such as Kunai, Wakizashi, Shurikein, Kaginawa, etc. You will have to explore huge 2D enviroments searching for items, upgrades an abilities that will help you to overcome obstacles and advance in your adventure. Spirit Huntress features beautiful handmade 2-D graphics and a custom O.S.T made by its author, Itoaragon, an was inspired by great old school games such as The Revenge of Shinobi, Super Metroid, or the Indie classic "An Untitled Story".
During December 12th and 13th, Spirit Huntress was showcased at "RetroSevilla", a Retro-Gaming Expo here at Seville (my hometown).
A friend recorded some excerpts from the tech demo available there, and I decided to upload these as some kind of teaser trailer/preview.
Please, note that this is early footage of a game still in deep development, so you'll find plenty of errors (inconsistencies in some animations, seams in some backgrounds, etc).
Also, I removed the combat gameplay footage to save it for a full-fledged trailer coming really soon.
Please, enjoy this short preview:
