Hazelnut Bastille is a precedent-driven, pixel art topdown adventure, referencing its design sensibility and mechanics foundation from the 90's classics. Players will experience an engaging character-driven narrative, featuring a sprawling overworld embedded with dungeons focused on challenging combat, and puzzles built around sequential logic and clever item use. Our presentation is obsessively focused on fidelity to our source era, featuring classic 4:3 aspect, pixel-perfect animation and environment style, and a rocking chiptune and sample soundtrack based on the techniques and hardware of the SNES.

Aloft Studio has released a one minute teaser trailer for topdown, Zelda-like ARPG Hazelnut Bastille! You can view the full trailer here:


Hazelnut Bastille is a title that has been in development by a two-man team for two years now, and is coming to Windows, Mac, Linux, and the Nintendo Switch platforms sometime in 2020. It is a stylistic homage to the character of late-cycle SNES titles, featuring graphics and sound / music in an authentic 16bit format! Hazelnut Bastille will also feature the contributions of famed Japanese composer Hiroki Kikuta, responsible for the Secret of Mana soundtrack, and several other notable works at Square in the early 90's!

If you have interest in following the development of the title, or would like to receive notice for our planned future crowdfunding efforts, be sure to hop on our newsletter, at:

You can also reach our twitter, reddit, and TIGSource accounts via the links at the bottom of that page; we have a Presskit available for any interested media outlets:

Newsletter subscribers also get instant access to the recently published demo for Hazelnut Bastille, which features around 2-3 hours of content, in a simplified vertical slice of our intended full title.

I would love to try it!
But I avoid newsletter as much as I can.
So I'll wait a little more, until the demo is not linked with the newletters ^^.

Hi Andreil!

We set it up that way, since it is a natural way to grow the mailing list of interested users. It is actually possible to sign up, get the demo, and then unsubscribe 20 seconds later, and never receive a newsletter. Or if you prefer, I could send you the demo directly.
