Forest Legend
Read more about game description and see more updates at http://forestlegend.com
Hello, Russpuppy here to share news on a new game I'm working on. Previously my main focus has mostly been on kid apps on mobile devices, but I've been eager to make something else for desktop. This game (I'll refer to it as Forest Legend since I have that domain though I'll probably change it later). It's still in very early stages but will be a platform style game, the main characters are trolls in a Scandinavian/fjord inspired setting. The plan is to have it optionally a coop so at least 2 players can play together. The end goal is release Steam via greenlight.

I am somewhat of a pixel art newbie I realize I probably need to brush some of this art up but it's a start!

Yeah nice :)

Gameplay is really smooth! I like the exploding blob animations. Although I think the mixture of lovelyforest and sci-fi guy with lazer gun is a little strange and gives the game some feeling of "trashyness"! :)

@Beaverlicious thanks, I appreciate the honest feedback. I may need to rethink the sci-fi character though I do want it to be a side-scroller shooter of some kind...

Very cool I agree with alvarop. And I also think your pixel art is pretty great too. I am most impressed by the level editor functionality you have incorporated into the game. is that possibly a function of the campaign where you must build platforms or is that just a stand alone function the player can mess with?

@LoneWolf007

Thanks. It's been fun doing the pixel art, my favorite thing so far to make is the spider. Image

It's not set in stone yet but I'll probably just make a level editor (not part of the actual game though that's not a bad idea). Still actually not 100% sure on making the level editor available to the player yet though, I might just use it for myself in creating levels.

Very very very good, i would believe it was made by Nintendo if somebody said that. Gameplay style, smoothness and art is a masterpiece I'm very jealous I'm not involved in the developing. Good job.
