After leaving the 3rd annual indiePub independent game developer competition $100,000 richer, the developers at Hitbox Team have been hard at work on turning their early dusty prototype into a sweeping and flowing reality.
Not much has been seen of the new Dustforce, but Hitbox Team has decided to give the Destructoid community the first look at a brand new level, some new moves for your characters and some fantastic music to set the tone for some janitorial free-running.
It also brings to life the true hidden danger of leaves on woodland creatures, both big and small. Those poor leaf-riddled bears!
On top of that trailer, the generous folks over at Hitbox Team have given us another fantastic piece of work to share with the community. Terence Lee, Hitbox Team audio engineer and composer, has just finished another interesting track that really shows the broad range of his skills as a musician.
I really enjoy fast paced platforming games and this is definitely one that gamers need to keep their eye on. With its smooth flowing animations, interesting hard-edged art style and the retro-infused score, Dustforce really stands out of the crowd.
