Acenn a 2D Metroidvania Style Pixel Art Game



Hello everyone!

I've been working on a project for the last few years, and I thought I could show it off again! Some of the pixel art made, was from users on this site! There's still a lot of work to do so if you see anything that doesn't look right that why. I also have a Kickstarter page to try and raise money to finish the project, so if you want to see more information on the game or to help support the project you can here!
You can also download a playable prototype of the game and try it out for yourself!! You can find it on the Kickstarter page.

Game Trailer:
*Please keep in mind this is a very early build of the game, its poor quality is NOT a representation of the final product.

Game Details:

This ambitious game will feature a Metroid like level construction/world building, a large world to explore, tough enemies with novel strategies to beat, bosses that aren’t your typical “shot to win”, they must be beaten with strategies and clever thinking (try out the boss from the prototype), a weapon effect system that increases gameplay strategies to overcome obstacles, level puzzles that are randomly created (so you can’t cheat and look it up online) that will take thought to solve, three unique game difficulties that mix up the game play and add replay ability, a level design that lets you pick your own path which will change how bosses are beaten along with weapons you have found. Cool, useful, and overpowered weapons, a long and challenging game that unknowingly teaches the player how to play without holding their hand, a large variety of music and pixel art that will bring every level and environment to spectacular life, and so much more.

Written Story Trailer:

You wake up in an abandoned laboratory. You realize you’ve been fused with a mechanical A.C.E.N.N suit. Your all alone. No memory. No hope. No escape. Can you survive? Can you find your memories… or die trying?

Unknown voice: “You’re really starting to believe this “fantasy” you’ve made for yourself”

There’s a lot more information and artwork on the Kickstarter page if you want to know more about the project or even to support this game. I know the trailer and gameplay footage could be a lot better, to say the least, but it is what it is, and I think it looks a lot better than the first post I made two years ago. There’s still a lot of work to be done and I will come back and post updates on the project. I hope everyone likes what they see so far. Feel free to comment your thoughts!
