Handcrafted Platformer Leo’s Fortune Coming To PS4 Next Week

The platfromer genre had an amazing year in 2015, with some of the games becoming instant classics, or delivering a touching and educational message. Well, it isn’t over yet, since former Battlefield 2 lead designer decided to join in with his own game, Leo’s Fortune.

Leo’s Fortune takes you on a quest to search for Leopold’s lost gold, and to meet interesting and quirky characters along the way. What makes this one special, though, is that it’s actually handcrafted from start to finish, with its own engine and uniquely designed levels.

“When you play Leo’s Fortune or check out our trailer, we hope you’ll notice the quality and effort we put into the graphics and environments. Most platform games are designed using a set of repeating texture tiles. We chose not to make our lives any easier and did not use a tile system.”

“Instead, each level in Leo’s Fortune is one enormous unique panoramic image, created from scratch. We even developed our own game engine from scratch. This is why we often refer to the game as “handcrafted.” We could’ve made this game more easily using off the shelf tools, but we don’t think the result would have been the same.”

The game won’t have any kind of micro-transactions, and will run on 1080p.

“We’re proud to have resolutely decided our game would be 100% premium with no F2P elements, a difficult decision in the market today. Now we’re proud to present you with the best version of Leo’s Fortune, gloriously rendered with a 1080p graphical upgrade.”

Leo’s Fortune releases on September 10 for the PS4.
