Elden Pixels who previously made Alwa's Awakening and Alwa's Legacy, and who are also working on A Void Hope also just announced The Prisoning: Fletcher's Quest. Looks and sounds like a good one for classic metroidvania fans here!
"The Prisoning: Fletcher’s Quest is a procedurally generated metroidvania where you enter a game developer’s mental prison after an intense project (totally based on a real story). Take control of his dream persona Fletcher, a slightly overweight 43 year old divorcee, craft beer enthusiast and cowboy hat-wearer and escape the mental prison to save the day!"
- Progress through randomized levels.
- Defeat or befriend gang leaders.
- Upgrade weapons, defeat bosses, find collectibles and all that jazz.
You can follow The Prisoning: Fletcher's Quest on Steam.
It will release in 2024 with Native Linux support just like their previous games.
