Remember I Wanna Be The Guy? Oh God, the memories haunt me to this day! Thankfully, creator Michael O'Reilly's newest game is not going to be as outrageously emasculating. He officially revealed it last year, but I haven't heard any outlet make mention of it since.

Entitled Brave Earth: Prologue, it's an homage to old-school Castlevania, when the series was all about tight platforming and minute-to-minute challenges as opposed to wandering expansive hallways on an open-world map. According to Michael's earliest remarks, the game was supposed to be a "Metroidvania," but from the screens, it's shaping up to have more in common with the classical style. Not that I mind either way, but it'll be refreshing to go back to basics.

Despite being rendered in "8-bit," the art is very detailed and the sprite animations are very fluid. I'm excited to give this one a spin, and I hope all of you can keep your eyes peeled. Brave Earth: Prologue ought to eventually appear on Steam and other services for $5.
