Years after the U.S. falls, the world is on the brink of war once more. A 2D action platformer for PC, in the style of a late NES game.

Hey guys, Sri here again. Long time no see! So, development on the game has been slow the past months, due to my Master's research and a bunch of other stuff. But we have still been slowly chipping away at the game. Today, we have a six-minute video for you, showcasing the entirety of the D.C. area (up through the boss).

Click to see the video.

You guys have seen GIFs showcasing some of the art here before, but suffice to say this video paints a much more complete picture of how the game plays. As always, there are small things to iron out, regarding both presentation and game mechanics... but you probably won't notice them because they could only bother obsessives like us. (And also because we haven't posted anything detailed about the game's backstory beyond what you could infer from the environments and in-level dialogue. But if anything bothers you, feel free to post in the comments!)

We hope you guys enjoy the video, and that you like the style we're going for! 

Also, here are some GIFs and screenshots, which will probably also be helpful for any game journos reading this. (And just because the more media out there, the better.)

 

 

 

 

 

We are also going to post a quick follow-up update in a bit, formally introducing you guys to the artists on the team (since, insane as it sounds, we never actually did that). The dudes who helped make the game look this great need all the credit in the world.

Okay Sri great but when's the game coming out.

We don't want to make any promises we can't keep. But there is one thing we can say: when the game comes out, it will be worth your time.
