Featuring tons of multiplayer fun fitting for absolutely anyone, The Legend of The Artifact is an unique 2.5D platformer with fighting elements for up to 4 players! TLoTA takes inspiration from great games such as Kirby, Smash Bros, Legend of Zelda, Mario and more!

"The Legend of The Artifact"

"Many, many years ago, a precious golden treasure, only called The Artifact, brought peace to the land and all it's people, from a place called the Sanctum. However, it was stolen from the people by a strong evil monster called Hypokhrisis. The artifact had great power, and could therefore bring peace, but it could also be used for great evil. Being brung so close to evil like Hypokhrisis after all the time in peace, the artifact created smaller fragments of itself with a small amount of power in each. Four heroes appeared with each their piece, and saved the land from Hypokhrisis and took back The Artifact to the Sanctum, recovering the land back to it's once peaceful state. A long time has passed since then, and only one of the four heroes still remain today."

The Legend of The Artifact is a 2.5D platformer with fighting elements for up to 4 players. An evil wizard has stolen the golden treasure known as The Artifact, which keeps the land in peace and harmony. The legend says that four heroes saved the land last time it happened, and now four new heroes will have to stop the wizard and get back The Artifact to it's shrine, The Sanctum. 

You will play as one of the four heroes; Matt, Chip, Aria or Huey. Play alone or with friends and advance as a team in order to recover The Artifact and defeat the wizard!

TLoTA is estimated to release sometime this summer. TLoTA will also be released on any platform where a license can be acquired. This includes Wii U, Ps4, Xbox One and more, if possible.

TLoTA is closing in on release! I've also drawn some concept art, and uploaded a new demo version with some controller fixing. The update isn't huge, but it should allow you to play with controllers much better than before, so it basically fixes multiplayer!

First off, I am a lot more active on my Twitter these days. You can see my Tweets over at the side of this page, or you can follow me on there! There is a lot of info you will get a lot faster over there than here, due to the short tweet thing.
Check it out if you like!


Now, onto the concept art!

I've drawn a more detailed picture of Hypokhrisis. It's a lot more accurate than the other one I posted, as that one was how he is depicted in the legend, which is stylized.

But while I'm at it, I will also say that I draw fan art over at my DeviantArt as well. If you are interested you could always check it out. Here an example of one!

And finally, here is the new demo! Hopefully you'll be able to play without endlessly walking in one direction this time!

Either, way, there are other fixes, so here is the quite small changelog:

- Fixed controller joysticks. Should not endlessly walk in a single direction when not touching controller.

- Friendly fire fixed. When a projectile is launched, it will know if it is owned by a player, if it is PVP mode, and if teams are enabled. And if PVP and teams are on, it will only hurt enemy teams.

- Fixed spawn bug on 1-2 Winter Wonderland.

Please try it and leave feedback!

Thanks for reading, I hope you will consider TLoTA for the full release later on!

I found out some bugs/glitches with the new update.

1. There is a way to get infinite Scorecubes in the town. If you just talk to the man in the shady alley way, you get one million scorecubes.

2. The text is off to the left on the signs within the 3 training rooms.

3. When you click to play the song "Dojo" the song menu closes itself.

The first one is basically just me forgetting stuff. I gotta give myself tons of cubes to test the shops, I knew I'd forget to set it back again afterwards. xP

The text is basically just another piece of the GUI I've forgotten to fix up for different screen sizes. I'll get that fixed.

No idea why it would close itself, but I'll check it out. Probably just a simple error. ;)

I've found some bugs in multiplayer. I was playing the game with 2 of my friends, we were playing on the Icy level.
1. I jumped from a higher part of the map onto one of my friends, and we got stuck inside of each other and no one could move after that.

2. For some reason our characters always moved towards the right without us touching the joystick.

3. On the Icy level, if you walk all the way to the left, you will fall out of the world and just go straight down.

I will post more bugs that I find within the new demo.

I have taken a look at the controller issue. I might have fixed it, as it still works perfectly fine with a Ps3 controller, and it sounds likely for it to work with an Xbox controller as well.

Sadly I have no Xbox controller to test it with, the reason I knew of the issues from before was because a friend of mine brought his Xbox controller with him to play.
I guess I'll just wait until next time he brings his controller to test if it works or not.

I'm guessing you guys used Xbox controllers? The Xbox controllers have some really odd things going on with them in the game. I have no idea why at the moment. I'm still working on that.

The stuck thing doesn't make sense at all. Players can't collide with each other. You guys must have done something else to trigger this. I have noticed that on some occasions nobody can move for some reason though.

Thats just a missing invisible wall. Thats no issue. Just don't go to the left for now. :P

Sorry if those controller issues are ruining the experience for you guys, but there is nothing I can do about it just yet. I will see if I can't fix it sometime, hopefully in the next update at least.

While it does sound mean to say it, I'm kinda happy it was just the computer. Sorry! xD

Anyways, tell me once you get to try it out on that other computer.

I have a question actually, are two people able to play the campaign together, and if they are, what would be the controls for the second player?

You can play story mode with up to four players. However, you need one controller for each player.

You can also play PVP against each other on various stages that are linked to the story. In PVP you can also change a ton of settings like the gamemode, amount of lives, item spawn frequency and the item switch where you can turn of items in general or specific items.

So I'm not sure if you were aware of it, but TLoTA has a pretty advanced PVP mode in it along with the story mode. Should be able to give hours of fun if you have the controllers for it. ;)

Haha, it doesn't sound rude at all. And I will let you know my thoughts on it once I get a hold of it :D
