Description
Release date: March 2015
Gameplay
Olympia Rising is a 2-D action platformer starring Iola - a young warrior who has been cast into the Underworld after meeting an untimely end. She must navigate through the various twisted regions of Hades' domain, fighting through hoards of deadly creatures as she attempts her escape, making her way to Mount Olympus. Lush pixel graphics and fluid animation bring this stylized world to life as you jump, climb, slash, and incinerate your way through each stage.Taking inspiration from beloved titles such as Castlevania, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Kid Icarus, Olympia Rising delivers an exciting, action-filled experience.

- Fight your way through the Underworld, battling creatures of all shapes and sizes. Fast-paced aerial combat propels you upward as you slash enemies to bits with your blade or incinerate them with powerful magic.

- Navigate through deadly environments with fluid maneuverability. Make your own paths as you traverse through each stage looking for the most efficient way to climb to the top.

- Fierce boss encounters await Iola at the end of each Underworldy region - from gargantuan crabs to bone-crunching cyclops'.

-Chain enemy kill as you jump through the air - build up a big combo to earn even more coins to pay Charon the Ferryman and pass through the many gates of the Underworld.

- Simple to pick-up but difficult to master, Olympia Rising awards those willing to challenge themselves as they climb through the Underworld. Collect coins and other treasures scattered throughout the levels as you race through each stage.

- Explore 6 unique, twisted environments of the Underworld - each offering different challenges and creatures to overcome.

New release date is July 23rd! Will be posting a KS update this week. Backers will be able to acquire their Steam Keys via the Humble Store (same way they downloaded the game before).

@TragicZombie Full release, Early Access or private beta? I backed the kickstarter for beta testing.

They're planning on a release by the end of Febuary! Can't wait to pick this up. I've been checking up on it for months upon months now. I remember thinking "late 2014-early 2015?! Such a long wait!" Now we're almost here and I'm so pumped to finally get my hands on it. The demo was pure gold.
