I'd just like to tell you about Buck & Miles, which is a 2D retro-stylized platformer and a love letter to the more popular franchises from the 16-bit era. It's a (hopefully) fun, deep and novel platformer that spans over 100 levels and offers a lot of collectables, bonuses, unlockables and secrets.

The aim of Buck & Miles is to offer people who grew up playing these types of games a chance to discover a new title that brings out the essence of what made classics so much fun to play, beyond just copying their art direction with pixelated graphics.

Here are a few bulletpoints:

  • Music by Alexander Brandon, virt, brentalfloss and cboyardee.
  • 100 levels, 10 worlds, 8 powerups, 2 protagonists.
  • A boardgame-like overworld map with tons of games and chance events.
  • Single- or simultaneous multiplayer.
  • Set for release on most mainstream platforms, including smartphones and tablets, with priority given to Windows, OSX, Android and iOS (if approved). I've also applied for a WiiU license.
  • Mix-and-match powerups to find your favorite combination.
  • Transform into animals by eating magic falafel.

We still have a long way to go, so donations, tips, suggestions or just help spreading the word would be greatly appreciated.

I´m not a big fan of classic platformers, but I have to commend you on the art style and the atmosphere. That is up there with those of the classics like the SNES Marios. A lot of luck with your Kickstarter!

This looks great. I hope you guys are successful with your kick starter, the game itself looks rather charming and well made.
Your video "Rance's Story" had me in stitches.

It looks really nice! Good luck with your kickstarter. I know kickstarters can be hard to get funding for.
