8BitBoy - Huge platformer created with C2 and JS plugins



First of all - please help me on Steam Greenlight:
8BitBoy on Greenlight

I think this could be one of the biggest games made with C2. It has about 12-16 hours of gameplay + lot of replay value. There is tons of exploration to do with more than 250 hidden locations. 56 massive levels spread out on five different themed worlds with 2 different settings each world. It also has 5 hard as nails boss fights. When you have finished all that - you are probably only half way through it.

It's inspired by several of the greatest platformers of the late eighties and early nineties and it has been mixed up with my own story about being unemployed.

I have invested about a years work on this + more - so I really hope you like it. I gotta warn you though - this is not an easy game, the difficulty is also old-school.

I'm amazed that you made this project solo. It looks amazing throw back to the NES days. If I liked the 80's platformers more you would have my financial support. Though I will give my greenlight support for being in your exact shoes. Except i'm older :(

Part time employment and needing to support the family while being depressed.... I SO KNOW WHERE YOUR COMING FROM.

Good luck you have my best wishes. Also it's a pity there a lot of naysayers on greenlight :( seriously good luck.... why aren't there more people complain about FPS's :P

you may not be an 'employed' game designer, but you are by no means, in any sense of the word...an amateur. i believe that sqiddster means that the resulting product that you have modestly produced, is of a professional level in every sense; graphics, sounds, level design, animation, interaction, and all around, laser-shark frikkin coolness.

may you game dev long, and prosper.

This comment makes it all worth it for me. Thank you very much - I have had so many negative comments about this game everywhere, so it's really a breath of fresh air for me.

People don't realize that it's impossible to make a solo game the same quality a 50 people production with millions of dollars on the budget.

This is just my hobby - even though I have had a little too much time to do it lately :)
