Become Dragon Ninja Byoka, thrust through time from a fantasy feudal Japan into a dystopian urban landscape, slice, jump and dash your way through intense platforming action to slay the Chaos Serpent and avenge your lost master.

Dragon Ninja Byoka is a retro, Indie Game platformer akin to the classic 1980s action platformers found on the Nintendo Entertainment System, upgraded with visceral combat and pixel-perfect platforming action.

Now available for Wishlist on Steam!

IT'S RELEASED! Store.steampowered.com

I made the decision to release Dragon Ninja Byoka to Steam in advance of predicted goals. Over 70 handcrafted levels are built and ready for you to play and I am excited for you to follow Byoka and his journey to avenge his fallen master and stop the Chaos Serpent from undefining the universe.

Any issues that arise will be addressed with rapid patches. I will monitor the community channels for any feedback and hope to see you there! Please note that some patches may involve updating the game engine or levels and may invalidate playback recordings.
