Hazelnut Bastille is a precedent-driven, pixel art topdown adventure, referencing its design sensibility and mechanics foundation from the 90's classics. Players will experience an engaging character-driven narrative, featuring a sprawling overworld embedded with dungeons focused on challenging combat, and puzzles built around sequential logic and clever item use. Our presentation is obsessively focused on fidelity to our source era, featuring classic 4:3 aspect, pixel-perfect animation and environment style, and a rocking chiptune and sample soundtrack based on the techniques and hardware of the SNES.
Aloft Studio has released a one minute teaser trailer for topdown, Zelda-like ARPG Hazelnut Bastille! You can view the full trailer here:
Hazelnut Bastille is a title that has been in development by a two-man team for two years now, and is coming to Windows, Mac, Linux, and the Nintendo Switch platforms sometime in 2020. It is a stylistic homage to the character of late-cycle SNES titles, featuring graphics and sound / music in an authentic 16bit format! Hazelnut Bastille will also feature the contributions of famed Japanese composer Hiroki Kikuta, responsible for the Secret of Mana soundtrack, and several other notable works at Square in the early 90's!
