About

Play the demo:

https://zuputh.itch.io/zeus-begins

Note: This is an early demo prototype with the first part of the game.

 Zeus begins is a beat em up classic game inspired by greek mithology about the adventures of young Zeus.

It is in development for PC,Mac and Linux,with Nintendo Switch port as Stretch Goals in this Kickstarter campaign.

 In the begining of the world the first tenants of Olympus was Rea and Cronos.The Titan Gods.

In this family a several sons was born, but Cronos had a rare diet.He swallowed his sons entirely.

 Rea hid the last newborn child in Crete island and gave to Cronos a stone with mappy that he swallowed as a child.That newborn was Zeus,the future king of gods!

Zeus lived in Crete island all his childhood and trainned so hard to fight and defeat his father,Cronos.When young Zeus was ready to fight he begins the travel to find the way to Olympus and to demand his throne.

Here begins the story of the young Zeus back to the Olympus and to become a legend.

 Zeus begins is an old school beat em up with simple but effective controls.

Playable with keyboard or game controller you only need a movement keys, punch, kick and magic keys, that´s all.

As Zeus you should travel across the mithologic Greece from Crete island to Olympus mount. During your way you will fight with many creatures as Satyr, Minotaur, Amazons, Centaurs, and so many mithological creatures, including final bosses.

Some characters
Some characters

 Zeus is still younger but he is a god and has a very powerful skills. He has strength to defeat the enemies with body combat and he can use magic special powers.

 Between some stages the game becomes a shot em up minigame with Zeus flying and shooting the enemies in a vertical view.

 I am a solo developer who works in game design, graphics, programming and colaborate with artists for concepts and new ideas.It´s a lot of work,I know, but it´s so exciting to create videogames and it´s my big passion.

I´ve worked in Bushistudios as a game designer in a few projects for mobile plattforms.

 - 8500€: Game release for Windows,Mac and Linux.

- 10000€: Extra co-op mode with two new characters.

-12500€: Game port for nintendo switch console.

 Zeus begins´ development started in middle 2017. I´ve been working with my own funds but the development is still long. Kickstarter campaign is an amazing opportunity to improve the game´s quality and to communicate directly with people who may be interested in the game.

Thanks for reading and I hope you will consider backing the project and be a part of it!

Risks and challenges

Zeus begins is a project by one man team with ocasionally colaborations.
I have working with constant dedication to create a retro and funny game with the classical mechanics and new ones.
I am sure to finish the game development and the possible risks are to delay for a few weeks the release date.

Thank you all for your support and I hope you enjoy the game!
