I haven't been particularly active on the forums, but some of you may know me from IRC. I'd like to present a new game that me and my two partners are working on, and that we are intending to release as a commercial product by the end of next year.
Our game is called Buck & Miles, and is a 16 bit-esque singleplayer platforming game reminiscent of the 80s and 90s classics that most of us grew up playing.
It features a trucker named Buck and his sidekick Miles, who's beloved Betsy has fallen into the hands of an Evil Villain? named Baron Von Kaiser.
Kaiser lives in a blimp which continuously floats around the overworld map. The overworld map in turn is divided into 6 sectors acting as worlds, and the player must chase Kaiser down from boss castle to boss castle until he's cornered and finally brought to justice.
Astrojone is our team name. We are three guys working on this, and our goal is to try to emulate the design approach, art direction and promo material that Japanese developers used back in the days, with the intention of bringing back some good memories and nostalgic moments for players who appreciate classic games.
We welcome comments and criticism on everything we post, but more importantly we hope that at least some of you will become as excited as we are at the idea of a (we hope) good and polished platformer being produced.
Thanks a lot for looking at our game.
