I thought it best for the time being to put aside the latest homebrew developments and look towards Steam Greenlight for my gaming fix, with the newly added retro-ish metroidvania platformer ' Jester's Quest ' developed by Fendi. This is a fairy tale game with some RPG elements, that puts you in control of a lovable Jester that not only has to save the Kingdom, but also has to get the princess!
According to the developer, Jester’s Quest is being developed using the Unreal Engine 4 and features not only fully layered parallax scrolling with some similarities to Shadow of the Beast on the Amiga, but also an open world map to explore, 50 different levels, puzzles, enemies to fight, ass kicking multi combo combat, old school pixel art, handmade animation, pixie helpers, a bit of Dizzy, medieval, chiptune and orchestral music and even Unicorns!
So for those of you who are interested in Jester's Quest should head on over to their Steam Greenlight page and give them a pixelated thumbs up
