Cybarian the time travelling warrior is a classically inspired arcade action game, with a mixture of modern and retro gaming tropes. The game was conceived as an amalgamation of the original 2d Mega man games and side scrolling beat em’ ups like Streets of Rage.
Our goal is to get to the core of what makes an engaging and challenging combat system, break it down to its base elements and implement it in such a way that on the surface everything seems simple enough, but when you are required to dig a little deeper you’ll uncover a lot of depth.
Throw in everything you’d expect to find in a good old retro platforming game, deadly pitfalls, treacherous terrain, insanely over the top boss encounters, and you’ll be somewhat close to imagining what Cybarian the time travelling warrior will be!
In the year 409 AD a scripture had been unearthed telling of a sword...
A sword that could grant the possessor godly powers...
It was one warriors destiny to have the sword. So off he went...
Many had tried before him; but none successful...
With all his might he pulled...
Once the warrior had removed the sword from the earth something strange happened...
Beautifully animated and expertly realised retro style pixel art.
Epic boss battles! Expand your abilities!
Explosive and engaging combat!
If you pledge to have your name as graffiti in Cybarian then your name will appear on a random wall or bus and be you shall be remembered forever!
If pledging to have your portrait as a poster in game we will need a photo of you (or whoever you wish to have in the game.. within reason!) and your name. There's no better way to be immortalised!!
