Press release:
This dark and crazy adventure (“NetherWorld“) full of excesses and outlandish characters hopes to raise 5.000€ to finish its development, and if the Kickstarter campaign overcomes the initial goal, its developers (indie studio Hungry Pixel) will add a Nintendo Switch Port, among other new features such as new scenarios, characters and storylines.

With more than 220 backers and 5K Twitter followers, NetherWorld team faces its campaign home stretch looking for new supports, introducing NetherWorld physical edition and finishing the demo for Windows and Linux.  NetherWorld’s Kickstarter campaign ends on Tuesday, 20th March.

THE GAME: NETHERWORLD
NetherWorld is a 2D horizontal side-scrolling pixel art adventure game, with an irreverent and sinister plot. Its protagonist will be involved in a surreal story after being abandoned by his wife and handling his misfortune with alcohol, drugs and lust.

The player will be able to discover the sinister land of NetherWorld; to explore its darkest corners, get along with weird NPC’s, use flames and handguns to battle horrific bosses or just get drunk in a bar. From the beginning, the main purpose of NetherWorld developers was to create something different, an unusual story with deeply eccentric characters and a pile of -apparently- ridiculous situations.
This adventure will have multiple references to great videogames franchises such as Dark Souls, among others. However, some of them will be only visible for sharp players. In NetherWorld, most of the fights will be against final bosses, focusing on the story progression, dialogues and relationships between the different characters.

Each final boss will have unique mechanics, ensuring epic and intense battles. To defeat them and help our black squid-like hero to get over his depression, we’ll have all kinds of weapons. However, sometimes we’ll have to use nearby objects or just flee as fast as possible. In broad strokes, NetherWorld’s dynamics can remind us of Shadow of the Colossus.

General features:
– Dark, bloody and twisted world
– Large variety of scenarios
– Deep (and surreal) story
– NPCs with their own behavior and evolution
– Epic battles against huge and grotesque bosses
– Tons of weapons and accessories
– Humor
