yes - the music is poop - it's from the 8-bit LOI I did back on ZX Spectrum,

I actually really like that tune.  It's far catchier and more fun than most music I hear in games these days.  So fed up with modern game soundtracks... Most of my fave game music comes from the 8 and 16 bit era...
NES, Amiga & Amstrad CPC inspired
I know nothing about pixel art

Legend of Iya made it. Thought for sure funding was going to fall short - I checked 2 days before deadline and there was s huge defecit still. Surprising . . .

A great victory for the metroidvania genre !  :y:
...I'm still a bit concerned by the game's acronym though :D

Hi everyone!



We are a group of 3 people (programmer, artist and musician) working on the Octopus City Blues, an adventure game with the early 90's style.

Has been 3 days we released our kickstarter, and we need help to spread our project as much as possible. Don't back it if you dont like it, but any kind of support will be welcome, and we will be really thankful for your help.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ghostinabottle/octopus-city-blues

We are not asking for much money, because we understand that no one knows about us, and it's risky to ask for more.



We also hope you like what you can see about the game, and we want to thank to everybody for the support!

Okay, so this isn't my kiskstarter, and it isn't pixel art, but you have to get this on WiiU.

Ghost Song: A Journey of Hope




A beautiful 2D sci-fi metroidvania about love, hope, and redemption. Gameplay influenced by Super Metroid and Dark Souls.

This is a project that has 12 hours left, but still has 14k to get to its stretch goal for Wii U.
it features beautiful animations, and I regularly speak online to the creator, please back it or spread the word.

Back it here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1192311215/ghost-song-a-journey-of-hope


I can't be bothered to make a signature. Seriously, who has time to write these things? I have stuff to do, games to make, and you expect me to write a big, long signature?  I'm not your slave. You can't tell me what to do, so no, I WON'T write a signature.

Oh, wait...

What is Night Job?

Night Job is a dark 2D role-playing adventure game that is focused on telling a story in which your decisions impact the outcome. We've developed a deep storyline to immerse yourself in and a variety of characters who will want to help & harm you during your journey. Animated cutscenes will allow you to see deeper into the world and learn more about the characters as the game advances. The game is being developed for the PC running Windows.

The Story

You work a night job cleaning crime scenes. You thought no mess was too dirty for you to tackle. Now a serial killer runs loose in your city, and you're the only one cleaning up after him. He won't stop killing. It feels like he's taunting you with messages hidden in the crime scenes. Is there a meaning behind all the murder? Who can you trust? How far will you go to expose the killer?

Gameplay & Art

The gameplay will be centered around the decisions you make and overcoming puzzles. It features a dark concept with a theme of mystery which is supported by a custom soundtrack. It has pixel art gameplay in the classic JRPG style with 2D motion comic animated cutscenes. The cutscenes will include voice acting and composed audio.

Can a mod remove the image on the spriter / brashmonkey post, it's putting heaps of malware errors up in Chrome, essentially locking the thread for chrome users without a bit of messing around.. :ouch:
