Creepy Castle [Steam Link] from Dopterra and publisher Nicalis, Inc. is an exploratory, sidescrolling RPG about an awesome moth. It's confirmed for Linux and will release on October 31st.

Looks incredibly retro, the trailer is really well made, but it looks a bit too retro inspired for my tastes.

What do you guys think?

About the game
Creepy Castle is an exploratory, sidescrolling RPG about an awesome moth, conveniently named Moth, who aims to uncover the vast secrets of a creepy castle. It’s a fresh and charming adventure with the looks of a classic, but don’t be fooled by its retro appearance—it’ll kill you with modern gameplay mechanics. A twist on traditional turn-­based combat, Duels offer players a chance to score free hits on their opponent by performing well. Players shouldn’t let their guard down outside of Duels, however, or they might allow Moth to be squished by one of the castle’s many real-­time dangers, like traditional run-­and-­jump platformers.

That trailer was superb. I hope the game can live up to that promise. Nicalis have a great track record as a publisher, so the fact that they're backing this makes me optimistic.

Looks like there'll be some cameos in this too. Plague Knight from Shovel Knight and Dr. Fetus from Meat Boy, according to the Kickstarter page.

Looks interesting, I hope it is good because Nicalis publishes it :)

That was a really good trailer, but I'd have to see some actual gameplay to potentially get hooked since I'm not that big on platformers.

Such an epic soundtrack and cool trailer to disguise... what are those, Gameboy colour graphics? Not my scene. Maybe ten, let's call it fifteen years ago. Not today.

Quoting: GuestHorrible music…

How very dare you! :) A bit of glam, operatic rock music never hurt the power-rangers...
