We are working on Landflix Odyssey, a console game based on Netflix and TV shows. Landflix Odissey is a 2D platformer that ranges from classical to other typical run and gun and metroidvania gameplay types, in a delightful retro style pixel art. Play as Larry, a lazy binge watcher who ends up in a dimension that’s based upon his favorite Landflix (a video-on-demand parody) TV shows. Make him travel through many shows, gathering powers based on their lore, while helping famous characters and ultimately face an evil genius trying to conquer the world. Help him gather blueprints for his scientist relative, Uncle Doc, to power up said skills.
Who are the founders of Fantastico Studio and creators of Landflix Odyssey? Here we are: four videogames lovers, beer experts and TV series addicted from Rome, Italy.
We have been working together since almost 3 years now, having started with the creation of mobile games and having built a user base of more than 2M players so far. We decided to found Fantastico Studio as soon as we started the development of our first videogame for PC and consoles, Landflix Odyssey, in September 2017.
The game idea came up during a “beer night” organised to cheer up one of them, who was going through a bad love situation. He was playing with video games and watching TV series all day long lately, that’s why they wanted to bring him out of his shell. Then that idea: “Why don’t we create a videogame that brings you inside the awesome world of TV series people are so addicted with?!”. Given the immediate enthusiasm shown by all of us, we started that same night to brainstorm concept ideas and basic game mechanics. The creative seed was then planted.
After having run through our own savings and having received a small extra-funding from a fellow Roman game developer, we started to work effortlessly moved by a great deal of enthusiasm. A lot has happened since, and what has started as an adventure is about to see the light pretty soon! The game’s release is expected for as early as next September 2018, on PC and consoles (Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch).
Don’t miss the next appointment with Landflix in February, as we are launching a Kickstarter campaign on the 5th February to gather part of the missing funds necessary to cover the costs of art design, sounds and testing (and possibly more stretch goals). The rewards to the backers are very rich and exciting, so take a look yourself and please support us as much as you can, also by sharing our story with your friends!
Thank you! :)
