THE STORY

One day in 1995, a nerdy, overweight 7th grader named Chris finds himself magically teleported to a mysterious castle in Transylvania. He soon becomes lost in a Saturday morning cartoon universe of magic and villains. When one of those villains transforms him into a helium balloon as an insult, Chris (ever the optimist) reinterprets his transformation as the superpower of flight, and floats off to save the world.

THE GAME

The Adventures of Chris is a platformer in the style of Mega Man X or Duck Tales, in which Chris can choose up to 8 initial world destinations. Somehow, he must collect magic spells, special moves, and upgrades around the world in order to transform himself into some kind of plausible video game hero. His ability to float or fall at will adds an additional layer to the platforming challenges. As he explores the world, Chris will unravel a 90's cartoon story, growing stronger until he can ultimately face the scariest, whiniest villain of them all...

Progress continues to be made on Adventures of Chris! The game is still on track to be finished by mid-2019. Here's what's been happening:

​MAGFEST

Adventures of Chris is now officially coming to MAGfest's Indie Videogame Showcase! MAGfest is a gaming convention in Washington, DC running from January 3-6. If you happen to be in the area, stop by and see us! You can find more information on MAGfest at the official website here: (Super.magfest.org)

CHILE

The Chilean level is now complete and ready for testing! Chris can now face off with hordes of cyborg penguins, volcanic fire rain, and El Doctor Pingüino's hi-tech weaponry. Check out these recent screenshots!

The Chilean level also introduces the idea of multi-colored gases that cause Chris to rise (or fall!) at different rates. In combination with the various penguin weaponry and volcanic fire rain, hopefully this constitutes a fair number of engaging new mechanics for the level. (It's always a challenge to make each level feel unique and fresh.)

JAPAN

Next up is the Japan level, where Chris will go head-to-head against the Clan of the Black Yarnball...
