Stardust Demon looks fantastic for retro metroidvania adventure fans

By - | Views: 26,120

Planned to release sometime this year, Stardust Demon is a retro-style metroidvania adventure game inspired by Cave Story, Zelda, and many more. Featuring cute chibi characters wrapped in some dark and spooky undertones.

Story: Algol is a perpetually sleepy demon who lives on the planet Klonix, alongside the other demons. During a routine feeding of the omnipotent statue, The Anuracanth, a unidentified starship crash-lands into it. Chaos ensues and the universe starts to unfurl. Along the way Algol meets Scringles, who has a chipper energetic attitude, and the nefarious poachers, who travel between planets kidnapping creatures and have a plan more sinister than anyone could imagine!

This is the ONLY Stardust I will recognise.......
If the plan is more sinister than anyone could imagine, then the game developers couldn't have imagined it, which means the game must be unfinished . . . they should warn us about that kind of thing.
