Hello!


I've been working on this game for some time already. The game's title is 'There Was A Caveman'.
The game is a retro styled, prehistoric themed action-platformer, where you play as a caveman and have to battle giant dinosaurs and avoid other hazards. The game is greatly influenced by such classics as Castlevania, Ghouls'n'Ghosts or Shovel knight.
Story -
The world has been overrun by dinosaurs. The last living caveman, is left alone in his cave, with every other living thing he knew dead. But he does not want to give up the world to these ferocious beasts. So with what little hope he has left, he will venture out of his caves, to find the only thing, that could save the world as he knows it - A female specimen to rebuild the cavemen civilization. But doing that won't be easy as the world is full of these dangerous creatures and other deadly hazards!

Trailer here, because I can't embed it to show the video normally http://youtu.be/yoledybI6F4


The game features -
>Cool pixel graphics.
>Strong core game mechanics, with stable platforming, dashing, variable jumping, friction etc.
>Challenging areas to go through, like dark caves or forests.
>Lots of dinosaurs to fight of including T-rexes, Pterodactyls and Diplodocus.
>Throwables to collect like rocks, bones or javelins.
>Javelins that stick to the wall, and you can use as platforms.
>Swimming and underwater areas.
>Lots of hidden things, and secret places to discover.

I'm not 100% sure it will stay true to the original material.
But Starr Mazer has always been one of the main source of inspiration for me; like, not for the style, content or anything, but just because it is so good it fuels my creativity every single time I watch it.



Anyway, it started as a fake trailer years ago, but it's now a thing:

Hello dudes and dudettes,

My names is Daniel, aka as Dnilo in the pixel world. I have come to tell you about the last hours of my game in Kickstarter, I know it's a bit late for posting this, but it is never late to show you this project.

The name is Steel Assault, an indie retro game based on the NES limits, with influences from the late generation games like Batman and Shatterhand, with a bit of gameplay mechanics from Megaman.





This is a two-man team in which I do all the pixels and my friend Sri does the coding and music, we have been working on it for ~6 months sporadically.

You can take a look at it on the Kickstarter link here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/43113410/steel-assault

I hope you like what you see!! And we appreciate your help :)

Any questions or comments about it are more than welcome, and I'll be in touch.

Thanks again!

I'm amazed that Steel Assault hasn't blown past its tiny goal long ago.
Don't the kids think NES is retro-cool any more?

Friends, gamers, peers, lend us your ears! We are a small indie and we canít afford expensive marketing; For the past year the Quantum Forge team has developed a game called Sol Avenger. The Kickstarter has been live for days! Although weíre excited about the project and weíve worked very hard for over a year on it, weíre averaging just a handful of unique visits a day on the campaign page! Our team has is passing out flyers around local college campuses and community centers to boost public awareness because thatís all we can afford to do! Without any significant marketing budget, itís difficult to get this thing off the ground! The people who have seen this project say good things about it overall. We think youíll love Sol Avenger because:

Itís a space shoot'em-up action arcade gameÖ Think Star Fox without the rails!

There are quests: Looting and leveling on planets and in space!

Skill, Stat and Ship Customization, RPG goodness!  A different experience with every ship!

Itís an endless adventure! Our local solar system with a procedurally expanding universe beyond to explore!

A cross-platform release - We can build the game to multiple platforms provided the appropriate licensing!

Satisfying boss battles: Feel the rush of surviving in combat while also solving a fun puzzle!
No loading screens!

I'm a game developer and I would like to share my project and opportunity for you all,

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wormholecity/wormhole-city-sci-fi-pc-game-xbox-one-ps4-stretch

Wormhole City, a sci-fi adventure with gravitational force physics, Metroidvania gameplay and vehicle sections so you can navigate upside down and sideways throughout a level. You play as an android reactivated and must protect Wormhole City while trying to find your missing creator. Exploring, vehicle sections, solving puzzles, enemy A.I. combat, and equipment upgrades are all implemented in the game. We aim to create a story-driven narrative through characters and audio logs that you will encounter and affect the story's outcome with the decisions you make.

Hi there! Iím new to the forum thank you for accepting me! Iíve been working for 2 years now on a badass animated series called WINDWALKERS, which really need you today and that is why Iím writing here. This is not a viral buzz campaign or anything like this, this really concerns a small creative studio and its survival!!

WINDWALKERS is based on the best selling sci-fi novel The Horde of the counterwind written by the French Alain Damasio (also author of the AAA video game Remember me).

On a world devastated by powerful winds, WINDWALKERS is the story of a group, trained and raised to oppose the winds and find their origin. It is an epic action team story meant to touch our deepest essence, and remind us that to LIVE AUTHENTICALLY means to BE IN MOVEMENT and to BE CONNECTED.

Designed by stars from AVATAR, PACIFIC RIM, JUPITER ASCENDING, MATRIX, FINAL FANTASY, this independent project can only live with your help, to stay free and because it is the purpose of the story: being connected, walking together!

Check it out on Kickstarter until July 1st

Hi guys! I thought I'd share my pixel art project! I don't want to bore you, so I'll let the project speak for itself. I love pixel art, and gaming so this project is dear to me! Thanks for checking it out guys! There's tons of custom characters and art.

There's a pretty cool video of the project on the kickstarter.

Our fellow Cyangmou just put his Kickstarter online ! This is awesome so check it out and back it.
We need to support high quality pixel art and show the public that indie pixel art doesn't mean cheap art.

Tim ninjad me...
well fixed the youtube link in your post (since that's a bit odd codewise).

Actually it's Benitosubs and my project =)
We have a devlog going on since the beginning of this year
http://www.indiedb.com/games/tower-57/news

And today was the big day we launched it for public support with the goal to focus on it full-time.
