    Hi everyone! I'm a developer from Fantastico Studio. we've been developing our first pc/console game and we've recently published our first game trailer:



    We're launching a kickstarter the next 5th of February hoping to launch the game on steam, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
    We've also recently finished developing a demo, so contact me if you'd like access to it :)

    We'd love your feedback on the game, also feel free to ask any question!

    Hi everyone!
    Recently we’ve worked on the game’s lighting system.



    For the light effects we used a particles shader with Multiply effect, applied on a Quad Mesh. The effect by itself was too bright, saturating the sprites colors, particularly the player’s. He had become a blonde guy!!

    To mitigate this effect and highlight the contrast between the bright and dark zones we applied a grey sprite over all the scene. playing with the sprite’s (which now works as a filter) and the shader’s parameters we simulated a darker environment when the player travels in underground areas, and a brighter one when the player goes to a higher altitude. It’s a simple trick, but with a great visual impact that makes the whole game look more alive!

    What do you think of our light effects?

    The light effects looks great! The effects are more visible once the player drops down to the underground portion of the map. What inspired the game?

    Thanks! We're still tweeking it, but we're satisfied with the direction we're taking :)
    The game was inspired by our love for videogames and TV series. Each world is inspired by a different TV show (the one in the lighting effect video is inspired by Stranger Things for example). As for the gameplay we mixed like the idea of having a mix of many gameplay styles edpending on the world and on the stage you're playing (similar to evoland). The fisrt world will be more "mario bros." like, but have a level inspired by "donkey kong country"'s cart stages. Also in other worlds we're gonna have metroidvania like mechaninc, shoo 'm up mechanics and "metal slug" like gameplay :)

    Looks really fancy. Keep up the good work!

    By the way: Your trailer is amazing! Shows the dedication to TV series really well.
    (Oh, and good luck for the Kickstarter campaign, of course!)
