Have you ever wondered what would happen if you mixed your favorite 8-bit games with your favorite 16-bit games? As of yesterday your question has been officially answered when A.N.N.E. reached its $70,000 goal on Kickstarter. This video game project is a combination of Metroidvania games and Gradius set on Planet Gomi. A shoot ’em up hybrid served in an open world-like structure with RPG elements.

You play as Number 25 and you’re in search of your beloved girlfriend A.N.N.E. who of course has gone missing. Now you must travel through a Metroidvania-style platformer with a unique focus on open exploration with high-level enemies blocking your path in order to find her.

What makes this game special is the ability to travel both on foot and via a ship called The Whale, which will come in handy when dealing with moving heavy physic-based objects in order to create your own platforms and access new areas. Number 25 success relies heavily on your  imagination by giving  you the choice to toss objects at your enemies or stack them against your foes in a clever matter.

As of now, A.N.N.E. will be released on PC in mid-2014.
