After 2 years of development, Hot Fudge Games announces its Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight campaigns for New Homeland, an original blend of various classics from the 8 & 16 bits era, the Sandbox genre and high quality pixel art.
"What if, back in the days, the classics were developed using today's technology?".
Over the last couple of months we have been fully focusing on getting this campaign nice and ready.
Obviously, and more than ever, we need your support and we count on you for spreading the word.
Thank you all IndieDB users and let's make this game a reality!
As its core, New Homeland stays true to the gameplay, the look and the feel of classics from the 8 & 16 bits era. It blends the fun and precise controls of a platform game, the epic journey in a huge world to explore of an action adventure game, the raw action and challenges of metroidvania's dungeons.
