As far as I’m concerned the world can never have enough 2D puzzle/platforming games. We might be getting a new one soon courtesy of Spanish video game studio Yanim with their game Red Goddess.
Yannick Puig, Creative Director of Yanim Studio has this to say about the game:
We’re super excited by Red Goddess, we’re going to combine puzzler with combat and platformer, in a Metroidvania style to give the player real variation. Using Unreal 4, we’re able to offer incredible visuals and complex environments whilst being able to bring the game to PC, PS4, PS Vita and Wii U. We’re going to introduce some stretch goals: for example additional localisation into Spanish, French and German, additional chapters and scenarios, and of course, many more power. We’d also really like to produce a Red Goddess comic.
The game will feature three playable characters that have their own special abilities. Players will have the ability to go into the minds of enemies which will lead to new secret chambers. Memory Crystals can be collected and these will allow players to unlock new powers and abilities.
The Kickstarter campaign for the game is going very well. It launched on May 6 and has already made 72% of its goal, with 24 days to go. It looks as if this game could possibly see the light of day in the future which is great since it looks like a lot of fun.
