LVL99: AxeRage is a game being made by a team of 3 people, as an homage to what we consider our favourite gaming age, from 80's to 90's.
Titles like Megaman X, Castlevania, Street fighter, and Super Metroid, are the inspirations that drive us to create this game.
It includes a B-Movie feeling as well, because we just love that stuff! Gore, fantasy sci-fi, robots, aliens, and apocalyptic scenarios blend in perfectly with our vision for an action packed adventure, so in the end LVL99 AxeRage is a reflection of all the badass brutal stuff we enjoy, and we hope you can enjoy it as well!
We love the look and feel of 2D pixel platformer games, their precise control, fast-paced combat and straight-forward gameplay, and we wanted to reflect this in a game of our own.
The game is action focused, with melee fighting involving combos, special moves, and quick reflexes.
You have the classic moveset consisting on Running, Attacking and jumping, but also there's several special moves such as divekicks, rising axe, heavy slashes, backflips, and lots more things that will be unlocked the further you go into the game.
You also need platforming skills to traverse the terrain, discover secrets, and survive the hazardous apocalyptic scenarios of the game.
Boss fights are diverse, with fast moving opponents that fight you one on one, and massive monsters that you'll need to climb to destroy.Backtracking to previous areas after getting some upgrades, offers new paths to explore and enemies to defeat, as well as other secrets.
Overall, we can safely say we're making this game into one we would've loved to play in our SNES or an Arcade back in the day!
Right now, we're doing our best to make it a polished and awesome experience.
But our funds to survive while doing so have been almost depleted, so we need to start seeking help from people who enjoy our work and would like to play the finished game in its ultimate form!
So please, if you feel like buying a coffee to keep some newbie developers awake (and alive) while making this game, please check https://ko-fi.com/axerage to give us a boost. We'd really really appreciate it!
Of course, sharing our videos, posts or info in social networks is truly essential as well. We'll be really thanful if you could share our links with other people who enjoy this kind of games!
We'll try to release the beta demo as soon as possibleas well, and start maybe a kickstarter or indiegogo campaign, and see what other options do we have to keep making the game. Check out the latest gameplay video, and Thanks a lot for reading up to this point!
