It’s another Friday morning. My head is fuzzy from playing way too much online Magic 2014: Duels of the Planeswalkers last night. I have my coffee in one hand, and my mouse in the other as I troll through my Tweet stream. This one pops out at me from the highly reliable Michael Heald.
It points me, via Indiegames.com, to this rather interesting-looking, and indeed fabulous-sounding video, whose classic 90’s 16-bit atmosphere immediately piques my interest for obvious reasons:
So I check out the developer, Pixeltruss, and discover they’re a Swedish trio: Tommy Salomonsson, Simon Stålenhag, and Nils Flodin, whose prior game is the monochromatic Metro Siberia. Their website has a whole selection of really cool drawings featuring the hero of their game, and even some authentic-looking period-style ads.
At this point I’m really intrigued. They say this game is out now, but there’s no platform listed, or price point. And that’s when I discover this. Go there. And even if you sit there and do nothing, just listen.
Oh. And just one more thing. If you like the music, there's another link below the next picture you should definitely check out!
