Hinedere Beat is a pseudo 8-bit, quasi-cinematic platformer with minor stealth elements and visual novel-style storytelling. Much of the platforming is parkour-influenced, progression is linear, and its story is one of cynicism.

Features:

  • Several parkour-inspired platforming challenges with minor stealth and puzzle elements
  • Visual novel-style storytelling
  • 8-bit graphics using a very minimally modified NES/Famicom color palette
  • Chiphop soundtrack
  • A raw, retro-styled gaming experience with a dream-like, abstract vibe
  • Supports Xbox One and Xbox 360 Controllers (recommended)

Adding additional, obnoxiously unnecessary information to the aforementioned, I created all of the artwork using the NES/Famicom color palette with the two alterations I made to it. I composed a chiphop soundtrack for it as well. Also, new concepts I’ve never used before are used in this game and I’ve put focus into creating levels that make use of them. The difficulty level is also a bit lower than most of my previous games. Like all of my previous games, I developed it entirely by myself.

Gameplay itself is influenced by the original Prince of Persia, earlier Castlevania games, as well as other 8-bit platformers and to a lesser extent, older Metal Gear titles. For nearly everything outside of gameplay, I was influenced by anime such as the Monogatari series, The Tatami Galaxy, Penguindrum, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, and Oregairu. Just about every SHAFT-produced anime that I’ve seen had also influenced me in one way or another.

Please do take a look at it if any of that interests you.
