Super Secret Service is an unexpected treat

Save the President from paper airplanes and tomatos

Austin Ivansmith directed Ducktales Remastered, a relatively big budget retail game featuring hand drawn animation the voice cast from the original Disney cartoon. It was a lot of work. You’d think that in his off hours he’d do something more relaxing like hang-gliding or fire walking, but no. In his spare time, Austin makes more videogames. The latest is Super Secret Service, and it has the same level of polish and craftmanship as Ducktales Remastered, just on a smaller scale. 

Johan Vinet did the art for the game. That’s good enough reason alone to give it a look. Along with Paul Robertson and Joakim Sandberg, Johan is part of why so many of WayForward’s games look so good. He’s also contributed to lesser known titles like Extreme Exorcism and Halfway. Like Austin, he doesn’t hang-glide either. In his off time, he makes even more dot art, like this little Batgirl

Super Secret Service costs one dollar. I hope my dollar encourages these two to work on makes another game. Maybe the next one will be about Bowser being a Dad.
