Brave Earth: Prologue, a Castlevania inspired action platformer, was shown off during Kinda Funny Games’ E3 showcase after a long hiatus. Destructoid actually wrote about it three years ago with the game being announced in 2011. In development for the last five years, this title comes courtesy of I Wanna Be The Guy creator Michael “Kayin” O’Reilly. It doesn’t look to be as brutally challenging, but it does maintain his streak of retro gaming goodness.
While not given a strict release date, the trailer ends by saying Brave Earth will be heading to PC soon. It looks to be quite the trip, so I’ll keep my eyes on this. I nearly thought it was another game by Yacht Club Games with the art style going on, but I’m just happy to see so many games carrying the torch that Konami won’t.
