Since the MiniLD theme is “Fusion”, I will mix 2 games, more exactly 2 old retro-games from the NES-era that I have always loved : Solstice & Metroid. Basically I hope to add a creepy Sci-Fi atmosphere on an isometric-platformer. I don’t think I will have time to add more metroidvania elements such as a map, weapon upgrades or bosses, that’s why I plan to do only a large maze (with parts locked by keys) filled with aliens.


What I have done these past few days : a basic isometric platformer engine & few enemies.

And since this game is VERY retro, I added an option to switch graphics, from the colorful 8-Bits NES graphics to a monochromatic tint mimicking ZX Spectrum graphics (afterall there are some iso good games on this console: Head Over Heels, Batman, etc. Huge inspirations for this project).

    Well, it looks awesome. I can’t wait to play it. I’ll have a go after I’ve finished my entry to MiniLD.
    Let’s hope it plays as well as it looks :)
