“Gofretor – A Viking’s Saga” is a retro-stylish 16bit platformer game, exclusively for Microsoft’s Xbox (One, One S, One X, Series S, Series X) which is going to be released on February 2021. The video is taken from the v1 build384 running on an Xbox One S. The game runs smoothly at ~40fps, although in these retro games fps doesn’t matter because the animations and the transitions are very limited and the enviroment is 2D.
Game features: – 11 levels – in one of the levels Gofretor uses a helicopter and shoots down enemies – 4 secret levels – 4 Bosses – 17 type of enemies – a couple of NPCs that help you throughout the game – 4 weapons (axe, double-axe, fireball, sword) – 2 difficulties – Many secrets (ie. hidden rooms, alternative ending, secret codes) – 16bit graphics – left-to-right scrolling mechnism – 5 layers with parallax effects – chiptune soundtrack
Unfortunately I’m temporarily stopping all current development on new apps & games, updates and website maintenance due to #covid_19 pandemic. This affects the release of “Gofretor” for #xbox as well as two more games for #xbox and #windows. Also, a new app for #ios is on hold too. 😢 I’m not abandoning the projects! I have to focus on my day job for the moment and I’ll resume the soonest possible. I’m an indie developer and the coding of games and apps is a side-job. Sorry, to all of the people who support my effort; I know that I promised a release of “Gofretor” in early November but the situation right now is altering my plans. Kind regards, Akis 😎
