To Challenge a God is a 16 bit side scrolling platformer inspired by Mega-Man and marinated in modern day mechanics. It is a fast paced, action packed adventure chock full of giant baddies, close calls, and a bright cast of enemies.

Ozma and Ry's first meeting. Click to read the rest!

The Island of Neria is slowly rotting. The lakes have turned to sludge, and the trees have begun to wilt. The only area unaffected by this plague is forest deep in the island known as Divinity's Playground. What secrets are being kept here? It's up to Ozma the Fox Demon and Ry the Magic Swordsman to investigate and save Neria before it's too late!

You take on the role of Ozma, an upstart Fox Demon with a legendary punch and a nose for adventure! He dreams of a day when bards will sing his name for decades to come, and children's eyes will sparkle upon hearing tales of his heroics! With his partner Ry, they've stumbled upon an island in dire need of some heroes, and so our story begins...

A campfire before the journey. To play the demo click here!

While Ry runs off ahead, Ozma will soon learn that there is more to Neria than what appears on the surface. An ancient city lies beneath its mysterious roots and protects a solemn secret that will threaten the fate of the world! Ozma must push further if he hopes to ever become a legendary hero and protect his planet! But when the final hour strikes, will Ozma be able to crush another life in place of his own?

The Foolish Brave - To Challenge a God is NOT your typical side scroller it features:


  • Gorgeous pixel art!

Ozma the Fox Demon.
  • Professional voice acting! 
 
  • Modernized health system!
  • Unique enemies like the Wolficorn and the Slime Queen!
  • Giant Bosses!
  • Progressively legendary difficulty!




Voice acting in 16 bit games is incredibly rare and well as the modernized health system adopted by most of today's current games. This system trashes the old school mechanics of health bars, and always keeps the pressure on to play your very best in every encounter.

Ultimately I'd like to have the game feature 6 action packed levels, with mini quests, more giant bosses, NPC rest stops, and a currency system at MINIMUM. Obviously with more funding more can be done!

 I started working on The Foolish Brave about 8 months ago. Starting out as nothing more than a casual webcomic, it has evolved into a number of mini series, an iOS app, and now a platformer. The Foolish Brave and its characters have an amazing story to tell, but every time I envision a medium in which to tell it, I'm blocked by financial demand. Of course it would be great to one day be able to fund a 6 figure game like some of the big shots out there, but for now, I'd like to give the series the modest start it deserves in a timeless form. Pixel art.

Much like any creative who is really willing to chase their dream, I've FULLY dedicated myself to this project, and with it, completely depleted my bank accounts all for this moment, all because I believe in this project. I've had the chance to work with many amazing people, but unfortunately, we all can't feed ourselves off of good will and passion, the game is at a point where it cannot move forward without some support.

To put it in a sentence: If I don't get funding for this game, my dream will DIE. I will lack the funds to begin a new project.

Some of you may not know this, but 10% of a project's funds go straight to Kickstarter and Amazon, and of course, those of you who get physical rewards generally receive this rewards through the funding attained. Other games in this category usually AIM upwards toward the $40,000, which is ultimately what I'm crossing my fingers for, obviously more funding mean THAT much better of a game.

The rest of the funds go to art, coding, music, and selective voice acting, and of course to keep us afloat and the lights on while we make this awesome game.

I am really thankful for anyone who helps me achieve this goal!

I've also worked on this really fun game!

Risks and challenges

The risks with this dev are very minimal! The Foolish Brave is a brand I've been working to build up for 8 months now and I have no intent of giving up on it anytime soon! Even as an unemployed game dev I've managed to continue making this game a priority and am proud to have consistently pushed the alpha to a more polished state! With the necessary financial resources, I will always be transparent and available to fans and backers and keep you updated every step of the way on the dev!
