Kickstarter: CRYAMORE! Action-RPG
In the words of its creators Cryamore will be a mix between Legend of Zelda, Secret of Mana and Megaman. The game is planned to be released for PC and Mac OS X and possibly Linux and iOS if they surpass their funding, which shouldn’t be too hard considering they have only started funding two days ago and already got $74,648 (as of writing).
Official Game Description
Cryamore is about a spunky bookworm who goes by the name ofEsmyrelda Maximus! Cryamore is a mineral discovered by her early settlers on Noka Island to replace the now-ancient steam-powered technology. It was later found out that they could be used as elemental catalysts to power a wide variety of things, even humans.
But this is causing an imbalance on the island, causing monsters to appear out of nowhere and sapping the town’s resources. Since Esmy (the nickname she prefers to be called) is passionate and a good candidate forCryamore research, she’s commissioned by the Town Council Chief to search for alternate Cryamore resources, which spirals into a much more ominous dilemma.
This is an action-adventure game (with a few role playing elements), to be released on Windows and Mac!
It takes the best facets out of yesteryear’s gaming, like inventive puzzles, well-balanced action gameplay, quirky story, hand-drawn backgrounds, and gorgeous pixel art, and blends it in not only just one yummy nostalgia cake, but a classically fresh take on the genre.
Go have a look at their project on Kickstarter, and if you like it, why not give them a few bucks. In the meantime, here are a few screenshots and art for your viewing pleasure.
