We initially set out to create a platformer that harks back to the days of our youth such as Super Mario Bros, Sonic and Megaman.
More info coming soon (whenever we get around to uploading it):

  • Design docs and character profiles, enemy profiles and other design information
  • Art asset overviews (inspired by the Overgrowth dev blog)
  • Gameplay demos (forgive the lack of original art for now)
  • Programmer and Designer development blogs/vlogs plus Twitch dev streams
  • Other stuff... Probably.

The team is currently working with dev art assets whilst we search for devoted and skilled artists but most of the gameplay functions are in place.

Please check our developer facebook group to check what we are doing right now!

Still developing.

We are still working hard on the game.

I have been dabbling around with OpenGL looking into making our very own crossplatform rendering engine.

Michael has been hard at work on the levels.

Jan, our environment artist has made some pretty nice tiles:

Our character artist Andrew has been working on some of our Faime sprites.

Mark has been mixing the music and experimenting with different sounds.

And finally Ian, has been slacking. Just kidding, he's been busy helping Michael with the levels for the first world and has designed some pretty cool layouts for 2 secret levels.

The point of this post is just to let you know that this project is not dead. It is very much in development. So my apologies for the lack of updates for this page.

Fixed some more bugs. I think. Sort of a re-revamped of the slope detection and reaction physics.
