New Game: Project Black Sun

By - | Views: 9,845
While doing my usual scouring the net on various gaming websites, games stores and whatever else Linux related i can find, I stumbled across this game Project Black Sun (there is no direct link to their game page - the link is on the right).

It's another platformer game but it has some really crisp looking graphics and the gameplay does look quite interesting.

It is pending approval by the staff at Indievania and Desura right now and the developers state on the page everything is ready to go.

QuoteThis is our first game and we wanted to get SNES game vibe to it.
Project Black Sun is adventure game with platforming elements and it's
inspired by Super Metroid.

- Lots of collectables and exploring
- Challenging boss fights
- Classic old school pixel graphics
- Rewarding gameplay

Windows and Linux versions supports Xbox 360 Controller.

Nice list you have i think i also own all of them bar PBS which i will pick up on payday, i might do a post listing all interesting indie platformers :) (at work at the moment so cant get my games list up...typing on my phone!).

Try And Yet It Moves & King Arthurs Gold (especially this one while still a platformer its multiplayer, bit like terraria almost).

How about Helena The 3rd! On sale now at Indievania.
Hamish 8 Nov, 2011
Hey, in my opinion it would be a disservice to refer to Helena as only a platformer. ;)
