If you like the idea of a 2D retro-inspired platformer where you can change the seasons, come check out the latest gameplay video.

The developers of FOX n FORESTS [Steam] say it will take all the best and beloved elements of the 16-bit era and combine them with modern game design, a chiptunes soundtrack along with the retro look and feel. As a reminder, the current plan is a day-1 Linux release sometime this Spring.

Unlike previous teasers, this new longer gameplay video actually gives you a pretty good look at it:

Funded on Kickstarter a while ago where the developer gained €107K in funding, it looks like it was well spent. Looks like a really charming game!

Will you be grabbing a copy? It certainly looks like a game that would have fit in on the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis.

Another one for my endless wishlist.

This looks good, but it makes me want to see more games that call back to the 32-bit era of the PSX and Saturn.

you mean the early polygon 3d games or the more colours sharper 2d games because i would love to see sharper 2d games i went through the 16 bit the first time this does look good and i am going to pick it up but as much as its fun to play the odd throwback, I would like some sharper looking games.

The 2D stuff mostly, although further on into the PSX's lifespan the 3D improved a bunch. And as much as I like chiptunes, I'd like to see retro styled games that don't always default to them.

It seems that this is not a Metroidvania like I originally thought. I cannot say that I am not disappointed by this revelation.

It sounded like a pretty cool idea, so I backed it. Looking forward to the finished product.
