[Retro Indy Game] After Death

Hi everyone !
This is my first post on the forum :)
I'm developing a video game with a friend (on our free time) inspired by Castlevania games (and also Metroid  :rollseyes:). We are working on this project for about 5 years now and we have almost finished the game.
We have submitted the project on steam Greenlight in order to distribute the game.

Here is the trailer / screeshots and some key points of the game :

AfterDeath is a platform / exploration game in the mood of Castlevania 4 and Super Metroid.
In this game, you will live a journey as an amnesic skull, traveling in a strange world, filled by dangerous creatures.With the help from souls, you will try to open a gate which seems to be the only exit from this hostile world.
You will explore, kill monsters and bosses, get new power-up and finally find what secret is hidden behind this uncommon world.

• A vast world with 7 completely different ambiences, each with one alternate version
• A 16bits consoles graphics style
• About 21 different enemies + 14 bosses + 7 mini bosses
• Many power-up to upgrade the player and to explore more of the world.
• 7-10 hours of play (depending of your curiosity and skills …)
• Release date : 2017 on PC

If you are interested by this game, you can vote for us :)

Welcome  :)

Your game reminds me of those old 16-bit PC titles that came out during the late 80's/early 90's. Kinda like Blackthorn and others similar in graphical styles.

The sprite style really reminds me of older arcade games, or dos platformers. Keep it up! I can't wait to see a demo of this.

Hi everyone again !
Just to give some news on this project. We are working hard and the game is finished but a Beta is on the way to be sure there will be no (or less) bugs.
BTW, we just have announced that the OST of After Death was composed by Francisco Cerda (who worked on Jamestown, Gunpoint ...).
The result is very cool, you can judge by yourself with this new trailer (and a preview of one of the track)

If you like the artist, you could listen lot of good music on his soundcloud : https://soundcloud.com/franciscofoco

Random note: that freeze/thaw mechanic on water is fucking incredible. I can't wait to see how that integrates into platforming and combat.

Recognized him straight up. "Conquistador" is the fucking best track I have ever heard from this guy. And I can easily see your game's OST is on the right hands.
Director of that one 1999 fangame that is not out yet.
