Expedition Unknown is a metroidvania style game that me and my wife are designing together.

For those unfamiliar with what metroidvania is, think of it as an action platformer with puzzle elements similar to the Nintendo classics "Metroid™" & "Castlevania™"

If you have already looked at the screenshots or watched the video allow me to explain a little The video is of an alpha build of the engine. The game will play different to what the video shows as it will be less about collecting gems and scoring points, but more about adventuring, finding new weapons and learning new skills to allow you to progress. The pixel art style will however remain the same, but with abit more polish.

I'd also like to note that the game is not only Egyptian themed and that's just one of many types of zones in the game, all with their own unique theme.

So what starts out as a simple adventure through an old Egyptian tomb will ultimately end up with you blasting big bosses of some ancient race with your newly found high-tech weaponry.

Please check out our Kickstarter page to see how you can get involved.

Very cute and inspiring graphics, but the perma scrolling burns your game. You should think about a one screen level action, with less enemies (more static- less mario). When i look at your game, i see a outside jungle map at south america, spider holes, indians, spikes, underwater- submarine indoor action etc. only my opinion- Great work so far.

I'm a pretty "veteran" Metroidvania gamer myself, so I look for things no human could possibly deliver and shouldn't discourage you if I didn't buy etc. However, as a design tip: I and probably many other people who enjoy "Metroidvania" games like the exploration aspect and the growth of your character's arsenal and power. I'd need to see more before I can judge. But I encourage you to keep working on it! It's got potential.

I wish I had caught this on Kickstarter - I would have contributed since it looks really AWESOME! I LOVE retro platformers! Still planning to proceed with it? Are you going to relist with Kickstarter? If so, contact me I run a video game website that features cool kickstarter projects like this and would love to help promote it.
