About

Freedom Planet is a stylish platform adventure that pits a ridiculously fast dragon girl and her friends against an alien invasion force. Its retro-styled graphics, tight gameplay and charming characters make it feel as though you're playing through the golden days of the Sega Saturn or Playstation 1. The game features voice talents from around the web such as Sean Chiplock, Edwyn Tiong and Dawn Michelle Bennett, as well as sound designs from Akash Thakkar and gorgeous music composed by both Woofle and the game's producer Strife. Freedom Planet may only have a demo so far, but it has already tickled plenty of itches with its straight-to-the-point platforming action.

A breath of fresh air for indie platformers . . . every platformer fan should grab the demo.[indiegames.com]

I see no reason why you shouldn't check out the demo right away.

What makes us different?

There's no shortage of platform games on the market, and a lot of them are fun experiences. So, what does Freedom Planet do differently from the vast ocean of indie platformers out there?

We jump in quickly with an equal mix of high speed action, platforming, and exploration. Most platform games focus mainly on one of these three elements, but with our 360-degree physics engine, we believe there is a lot of potential to mix them all into the same package. Imagine barreling down a road while being chased by a giant death laser, at which point you run up a wall and end up on several different routes depending on which direction you take and whether or not you decided to jump. Or, how about a room with ceiling crushers where you can either blast through them to cut down on time or chill on a bench and wait until the coast is clear? The kind of experience we're aiming for is one in which almost any action you take leads to something interesting.

Another notable difference Freedom Planet has is something we wish was more common in video games: Female heroes that are quirky and endearing. Each of the game's three playable characters - Sash Lilac, Carol Tea, and Milla Basset - have their own distinct ways of overcoming obstacles and discovering secrets.

  • Lilac can whip enemies with her hair strands and build up energy by running really fast. When she builds up enough energy, she can spin like a cyclone or boost through the air like a comet!
  • Carol can punch and kick enemies at lightning speed, pounce, and scale walls. If she collects fuel canisters, she can even drive a motorcycle!
  • Milla can levitate for a short time and dig through dirt to find items and treasure. When the going gets tough, she can summon shields to reflect enemy projectiles.

The Story

The ruthless warlord known as Lord Brevon has crash landed on the world of Avalice. His surviving crew learns of three nearby kingdoms - the water city of Shuigang, the forest metropolis of Shang Mu, and the sky nation of Shang Tu - that are powered by an artifact known as the Kingdom Stone. Brevon sets in motion a sinister plan to manipulate the three kingdoms into attacking each other, knowing that when they are weakened, he can take the stone and use it to repair his dreadnought.

Meanwhile, two young girls, Lilac and Carol, are on their way to the annual pilgrimage to the Kingdom Stone - not to pay tribute, but to steal money from the rich so that they can continue to live by themselves in their treehouse. Along the way, they notice an airplane falling from the sky! They race across the valley to rescue the pilot, Torque the Shellduck. Little do they know that Torque is the only one who knows about Brevon's plan, and he cannot stop him alone...

I'll do what ever i can to help fund the game so that it can be ported to the PSVita as well ^_^
Hey, Digger Nick. First off, I think its apparent from the voting process that a lot of people actually want this game so you got no say in it.

Second of all, learn to spell, ya bad grammar troll.
