The beauty of Kickstarter is that any time can make any kind of game, from the hardest of titles to the most classic of genres. A new game has arrived on the crowdfunding platformer that’ll appease anyone who grew up in the classic eras of gaming. Flynn: Son of Crimson is a 2D action platformer done in a sprite style visual state, and having gameplay familiar with the Metroidvania subgenre, yet while also have unique elements all its own. It’s a game you likely won’t want to miss.
In classic style, you take on the role of a young man named Flynn. Flynn was orphaned at an early age but now seeks to travel the land in order to find out who he truly is. As he does so, he’ll find out he has an ancient power within him known as “Crimson”, and as he unlocks this power, he’ll gain great abilities.
The team at Studio Thunderhorse wanted to make something fun, yet special. So the world you’ll explore in Flynn: Son of Crimson is vast and doesn’t have to be explored in a certain way. You can explore it at your own pace, and see what mysteries and story elements you can find as you do. As you gain more Crimson powers, more options for how to travel will open up for you, giving an intense desire to travel back and forth to see what’s out there.
The battle system was a key priority for the team. They wanted something fast, furious, and fun, the result may just be that. As in the game, you can swap between weapons on the fly, and thus deliver different kinds of damage without having to go to another screen.
Flynn: Son Of Crimson will be on Kickstarter until the 24th of October. If you think you’d play this game, consider backing it.
