Apparently this is an old-school, NES-style "Metroidvania" game that is making Jools very happy about making. They are even going so far as purposely using the NES's limited color palette to really drive home that old-school feel. Here are some early screens:
I guess Jools wasn't kidding when he tweeted a while back about how the next project will have "pixels 'n stuff." But he's super-happy about it!
Also, you can scan this QR code with your 3DS to get screenshots of the game in stereoscopic 3D on the handheld. Neat!
What say you, Negative World? Excited for Renegade Kid's latest project?
@ludist210 Yeah, at this point I've waited too long and I don't expect to be buying it, even though I probably would if it had released closer to the US version. I like the 3DS game and would have liked to play it on a big screen, but these days I'd definitely rather get one of Curve's ports or some kick-ass VC game.
Still, the circumstances makes me wonder how long it will take for Xeodrifter to get over here.
@ludist210 Mutant Mudds is a decent game, but it's also very over-hyped and over-rated. It was a very safe, typical, basic platforming game. I expect Xeodrifter to be the same. Nothing mind-blowing, but a safe/basic version of a tried and true formula.
You summed up my opinion on Mudds well, and that's about how I expect Xeodrifter to turn out. Not great, but good enough. Hence why I'll wait for a sale before I decide on whether or not to pick it up.
