The Legend of The Artifact Demo, version v1.12. A lot of bug fixes done and some improvements. Probably one of the final demo versions needed!
Featuring tons of multiplayer fun fitting for absolutely anyone, The Legend of The Artifact is an unique 2.5D platformer with fighting elements for up to 4 players! TLoTA takes inspiration from great games such as Kirby, Smash Bros, Legend of Zelda, Mario and more!
"Many, many years ago, a precious golden treasure, only called The Artifact, brought peace to the land and all it's people, from a place called the Sanctum. However, it was stolen from the people by a strong evil monster called Hypokhrisis. The artifact had great power, and could therefore bring peace, but it could also be used for great evil. Being brung so close to evil like Hypokhrisis after all the time in peace, the artifact created smaller fragments of itself with a small amount of power in each. Four heroes appeared with each their piece, and saved the land from Hypokhrisis and took back The Artifact to the Sanctum, recovering the land back to it's once peaceful state. A long time has passed since then, and only one of the four heroes still remain today."
The Legend of The Artifact is a 2.5D platformer with fighting elements for up to 4 players. An evil wizard has stolen the golden treasure known as The Artifact, which keeps the land in peace and harmony. The legend says that four heroes saved the land last time it happened, and now four new heroes will have to stop the wizard and get back The Artifact to it's shrine, The Sanctum.
You will play as one of the four heroes; Matt, Chip, Aria or Huey. Play alone or with friends and advance as a team in order to recover The Artifact and defeat the wizard!
TLoTA is estimated to release sometime this year.

If you wish to record any gameplay video of TLoTA, you are more than welcome of doing so! It is actually preferred, as it helps publicity and feedback.

TLoTA is finally getting it's release! Which means it has also hit Steam Greenlight as I always planned to attempt getting it released on Steam. With release being so close, TLoTA has of course also gotten an official trailer as well!
First off, here is TLoTA's official trailer! Check it out, it shows some neat things in action and should demonstrate the game quite well.
Next up is the most important thing of all. TLoTA is now on Steam Greenlight, and no, this is not a concept page or anything. This is the actual Greenlight, so I need all the votes I can get in order for TLoTA to be released!
So without further ado, here is the steam page:
But I have talked a bit with some friends of mine, and we have seen a problem with TLoTA. And it could be a big one.
In order to explain the issue better, I'll tell you guys some background info.
TLoTA was almost kinda initially sparked around the time when i first played LoZ: The Wind Waker HD. I fell in love with the game and I still love it. So it helped start my game developing.
TLoTA's character designs were then also inspired a but by LoZ: The Wind Waker a bit later on. In addition to this, they were also partially inspired by Scribblenauts, another series I have taken a liking to.
In terms of gameplay, TLoTA is mostly inspired by Kirby, Smash Bros, Mario and such games.
Now, to the point; you can clearly see lots of different sources of inspiration going on here. This means one thing we've noticed: TLoTA feels very unique in a way.
"But Mr Developer, what could possibly be wrong with that???", you might ask. Not much, but so far it seems like it might slow things down a bit. With TLoTA's different art style, it could mean that people have a tendency to look at it for a few seconds and then turn to something else, never to look back. It seems like a lot of people basically just doesn't give the game a chance, even if they might've ended up loving the game if they tried it.
Now, this could be all wrong on our side. But so far it seems like it might be hard for TLoTA to earn traction. Hopefully this won't turn out to be much of an issue after all though, but I'll try nonetheless!
Now, we got one last thing for this post. And thats simply the release. For those who are confused; no, TLoTA will not be free. The demo is free to try for anyone who wants to give it a shot (be my guest, go ahead!), but the final game will cost a few euros.
This is simply due to me needing to lift off my career as a gamedev in order to be able to make more games in the future easier. So the money won't be wasted by any means! It'd basically be helping me with my future, so I thank anyone who wants to help.
Anyways, I can't say a price at the moment, but I will try keeping it as cheap as possible in order to let as many people try out the game for themselves. I will of course release it on Steam if I can get it Greenlit, and I will probably attempt to release it in places like Desura and such as well. More on it later.
I lied. There is one more thing for this post... And it's a whole lot less serious! I friend suggested doing this to me, and I thought: "Why not? Could be cool". So here is TLoTA in a more anime/mange style. Enjoy, I suppose?
Anyways, a lot of things are going on right now, so please share a vote if you can, and lets just hope TLoTA can get it's big release! Thanks for reading!
