There Was A Caveman - Prehistoric retro inspired platformer greenlight success

Aamatniekss has informed the gaming community of a successful Steam Greenlight campaign for 'There Was A Caveman'. A challenging action platformer where you play as possibly the last Caveman venturing out of his cave to save the world overrun by dinosaurs and hopefully find a female specimen to rebuild his caveman civilization. To coincide with this news, the developer has also released a number of animated gifs, and a new demo version which includes lots of small fixes and additions, and a few bigger things.

According to the developer the game will have similarities to games like Castlevania,Ghouls'n'Ghosts and some newer titles such as Shovel Knight with retro style pixelated graphics. It will also be a challenging action platformer with the usage of quick reflexes as you fight with club, or throwing weapons such as javelins, rocks or bones. You can even boost higher up in the air or dash, climb vines, swim and even ride dinosaurs! The game will also be divided into levels, where in each there's a boss. With a plan of about 8-10 levels, each with different visuals and enemies to encounter

  • Awesome pixel graphics and animations. 
  • Strong core game mechanics, with stable platforming, dashing, variable jumping, friction etc. 
  • Challenging areas to go through, like dark caves or forests. 
  • Lots of dinosaurs to fight of including T-rexes, Pterodactyls and Diplodocus. 
  • Throwables to collect like rocks, bones or javelins. 
  • Javelins that stick to the wall, and you can use as platforms. 
  • Swimming and underwater areas. 
  • Lots of hidden things, and secret places to discover.

Hopefully the full game will be released this year as so far the game is looking to be a ton of retro inspired fun!
