The Legend of Tobimaru - Kickstarter Launch

The Legend of Tobimaru is a 2D action platformer game that sees you playing a ninja on a journey to defeat the enemies that destroyed his village and collect the fragments of his Protector’s Orb.

The game takes inspiration from retro classics such as Super Mario Brothers and Mega Man, as well as classic fighting games such as Street Fighter II. It is a 2D action platformer with combat inspired by fighting games and challenging combat puzzles. It has a linear progression with minimal backtracking to differentiate it from Metroidvania games.

It is a retro-style game with modern twists. We've implemented modern techniques that weren't used in classic games, such as advanced camera control, parallaxing backgrounds using perspective cameras, and dynamic scene loading.

If you want to see the game in action there's an Alpha Demo available.

It will initially be released on PC with a Linux version to follow.

Check out the Kickstarter Campaign for more details or to pledge.  A pledge of $15NZ (about $10USD or £7.49GBP) bags you a digital copy of the game.
