Ikao, a little bluish creature suddenly finds herself in the abyss of time, without any memory. After leaving, he has no choice but to travel the world in search of answers to the mystery behind his past.
Ikao the Lost Souls is a platform game featuring classic formulas of the genre, while incorporating some personal touches. You will be able to control two characters one after the other throughout your journey, each with a unique gameplay, with as the skills to unlock.
We want you to have a mysterious gaming experience around the story. Hence we have placed a particular attention on the graphic and musical atmosphere.
You will travel the world in search of "fragments" of memories that will be materialized via visions / hologram of your past in the hundred levels initially planned.
You have paid particular attention if you want to know the story of Ikao, however the ultimate answer will be unveiled at the very end of the game.
The game will be controlled via a keyboard, a PC controller, XBox One and XBox 360.
Youtuber "Fellow Player" and "Are0us" speak about the game
The difficulty will be gradual, and will go from an easy game at the beginning to a game that will later require some requirement from the player, without falling into the genre "Die and Retry"
We designed the levels with the desire to relive a familiar feeling of old classics like Mario, through blocks of repetition and then rework them one by one, to give them all a unique rendering. Once its last assembled and reworked, we draw entirely all the other elements to avoid as much as possible the effect of repetition.
We are a small Franco Swiss team, sharing a common passion that is video games. After completing some small mobile games that we essentially share with our friends and family, we embarked on the great adventure of developing IKAO The lost souls. It took us about a year to find our graphics, develop the physics engine and write the full story down to the last detail. Today, everything is clear, limpid and written.
Risks and challenges
IKAO The lost represents for us an unique chance to finally realize a dream, which is to transform our profession into passion.
We have and will continue to give everything for this project, and it is simply unimaginable for us not to finish it.
Of course, we are not immune to a delay with a supplier regarding the rewards as well as the new administrative steps of Steam. But we will do our utmost to make sure that does not happen.
That is why we ask for your help and support, so that we can deliver this game, which will represent for us a true consecration.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
