Crystal Picnic is a fantastic looking 2D RPG that is created as a tribute to the old action RPG games. Created by "Nooskewl" the developers of Monster RPG 2.
Crystal Picnic is a lighthearted and colourful tribute to the classic era of action RPGs! Join a sarcastic gardener and a wannabe knight as they journey across the kingdom chasing after ants who stole magic crystals from the castle. Oh, and did we mention the ants have gone mad because they're EATING those crystals? Yeah, that makes things much more unpredictable! Hours of exploration, mesmerizing platform-style combat, plenty of new friends to meet and loads of wacky enemies to encounter. When you fight chubby birds and ants carrying bazookas, you know you're in for a good time!
I just love that it mixes 2D side scrolling combat with a more top down overworld view while doing the adventuring. That kind of mix-mash of graphical styles pleases me for doing it at least a bit different.
Nooskewl are open source friendly too, as they released the Monster RPG 2 engine open source after an indiegogo funding campaign, so we may even see Crystal Picnic get open sourced in future.
They are also trying to get onto Steam, so be sure to give Crystal Picnic a vote on greenlight.
