When Knights of Bytes released Sam's Journey for the Commodore 64 back in 2017 it was a huge hit! Indie Retro News awarded Sam's Journey game of the year 2017 as this game really surpassed all our expectations, delivering us a huge epic adventure that really pushed the limitations of the C64. In fact it was such a great game, that once again thanks to another heads up from the same team, Knights of Bytes has released new footage of their work in progress version of Sam's Journey for the NES.
Back with an update on #SamsJourney for the #NES: Some fiery creatures await Disco Sam in the sky, but thanks to his signature twist, he can delay his fall gently and stomp them precisely! 😃🕹️ #8bit #retrogaming #platformer #games #2D #pixelart #gamedev #nintendo #famicom pic.twitter.com/bFekevrT9A— Knights of Bytes (@knightsofbytes) August 18, 2022
Knights of Bytes have been working hard since the release of Sam and we are excited to announce that Sam's Journey is not only still coming to the NES as a far cry from it's original April Fools C64 debut ;) but there's new in game footage of which you can view above. As in the words of the developer "A new NES game is in the making! Some fiery creatures await Disco Sam in the sky, but thanks to his signature twist, he can delay his fall gently and stomp them precisely!"
