Fox N Forests will be coming out to PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PS4 on May 17, 2018.
It’s a retro action platformer made by Bonus Level Entertainment and published by EuroVideo. The game was originally funded in 2016 on Kickstarter where it successfully brought in enough capital to build the game. It’s inspired by classic games like Super Ghouls N Ghosts and other similar 16-bit platformers.
The game is described as being “inspired by the classic SNES era” by Bonus Level Entertainment. It takes gameplay elements from Zelda and Castlevania, amongst others. You play as a fox with a crossbow which allows him to switch between two seasons instantly. It also allows you to change the level based on the season you’re currently in which can alter the platform such as freezing water paths or jumping across leaves in winter or autumn. The game also has a nice soundtrack that’s rather catchy and has old-school artwork like you’d expect from the same era.
It’ll be their first project and it’ll be released under EuroVideo’s label Wild River.
They released a video that highlights one of the game’s levels called “Fungus Forest” which you can check out:
