With these forms you'll have different abilities and ways of solving puzzles and battling your enemies. It's fun to experiment and see what works best on what!

The game is scheduled for release in Spring 2015 for PC and Mac platforms.

THE FORMS

As Circle you'll be very light, meaning your jumps will reach higher places with your double jump, and you can also float on water. The circle is the "middle ground" of the three shapes.

The triangle is made for speed! This form is perfect for speedrunning large areas, dashing and destroying Circle enemies in your path. However, this form is difficult to control... so be careful!

Square can stomp to activate switches! This shape is the slowest and heaviest, but also the strongest and sturdiest. Underwater he'll sink but then he can move a little faster. His might is pretty formidable, and he's able to push heavy objects.

By combining the three shapes, you can explore the whole Flat Kingdom and discover all kinds of secrets. After each level you'll acquire different upgrades for new skills! Use them wisely! 

This game is for all ages, and especially for those old-school gamers who want to go back to the days of challenging side-scrollers with modern touches.

THE LEGEND

In the world of Flat Kingdom there is a legend of a wizard that created 6 magical jewels to bring order to a world of chaos. 
..........................................................................................................................
The main plot is about a 2D world slowly becoming 3D. This happens because a mysterious thief steals a magic jewel from the Square King and kidnaps the Princess Tri.

Flat must stop him before it's too late, but he is always one step ahead, the plot will unfold as you play, so a simple story will become something so much bigger.

Flat will travel around the Flat Kingdom, a land with 4 stages: Flatforest, Flatlantis, Flateptl and Flatsgard. Each one with a giant jewel keeper.
In the story you will find the pages of a mysterious journal that will unfold the plot and the game lore.

Why does the evil thief Hex want the chaos of the kingdom?  Who wrote the journal? What happens when you collect all the jewels?

You have to discover the answer to these mysteries finishing the stages and visiting them again when you gain new skills that let you discover new paths in the adventure.

THE STAGES

The worlds are huge and full of secrets and surprises! You'll have plenty to do and discover while you save the world
In the greek world of Flatlantis, you can explore the huge sea maze or the sunken ship.

SOUNDTRACK

"I saw that the game was a very fun-looking puzzle action title with a protagonist similar to Kirby. So I thought of a theme that symbolized the cuteness of the characters while having plenty of motion. I hope everyone enjoys this game".

The game is still in development. We recently uploaded a demo and displayed it live in different video game events in our city, where the players gave us their feedback to improve our game.

We are finishing up the first levels and polishing a few details to begin the new areas of the game.

We have a long way ahead of us, we know, but we're on the right track and all we need is a little help from you to make this project a reality!

Risks and challenges

We are a small indie studio based in Yucatán, México and we need your support to finish our first big project! The videogame industry is just starting in our city and we want to help it to grow, so the people don´t have to emigrate or never get involved in it.

Being our first big project as a team, the others were apps for cellphones like Baiko or Lobo with Shotguns, we are facing a lot of new challenges that we must learn to overcome. We are using our skills in animation, illustration, programming and design in this 1 year and a half project.

We love what we do and we love videogames. We are having fun developing this, so we hope you'll have fun playing it. Our motto is "develop the games we would like to play ourselves".

Thank you from all the team members!
