Description
Release date: Fourth Quarter 2014
Demo
Interested in playing the free demo? Check it out here: http://or.paleozoic.com

About the demo: The demo is a partially complete tour of some of the highlights of the game. It includes one spell, several capabilities, and a handful of levels - enough to let you see where we’re headed. We expect that with the funds and future feedback of our beta testers, this core version will improve dramatically.

Gameplay
Olympia Rising is a 2D Action Adventure game reminiscent of the best 16-bit classics. Lush pixel graphics and fluid animation bring this ancient Greek-inspired world to life as you jump, climb, slash, and blast your way through various regions of the Underworld. Taking inspiration from beloved titles like Castlevania, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Kid Icarus, Olympia Rising delivers an exciting, action-filled experience.

- Play as Iola, a young heroine on a dangerous mission to escape from the Underworld and reach Mount Olympus - all for the purpose of discovering the reason behind her abrupt awakening and the strange memories that have been returning to her.

- 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.

- 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. Progress is only awarded to those who pay Charon, the Ferryman, at the end of each stage with their collected valuables.

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

Oh hey it's greenlit!
@Dawsbros: well, I'm part of a team that makes a game about a frog, it seems to do well with the non-frog demographic :3
Cool of you to get over that qualm, anyway. :)

Reminds me of a slightly less arcade-y Noitu Love 2. Love the pixel art and the soundtrack. Already a backer on kickstarter, can't wait to see the final product!

I really like the concept of the background story, and I'm longing for a good jump and run in the old style. This one looks awesome in all senses! :D

The action looks fluid, the graphics are fantastic and charming, movement looks good, and it's always nice to see a female protagonist. If it does get lit, I think I'd love to play it.

Hello,

my name is Shen and I am a relatively new youtuber. I was wondering, this game looks like it would be fun and I would like to help you get your votes from our lovely Greenlight community.

I was wondering if there was some sort of demo that I could try out on my channel and showcase it there. It would really be of help for me (and perhaps for you) if you could feature my video on your greenlight page.

I have already talked to a lot of Greenlight developers and they think I am doing a good job.

To name some: Cornerstone: Song of Tyrim, Festival of Magic

I make Let’s plays and First Impression videos. My impressions are genuine. I never playtest a game! You will see my natural reactions and I will be vocal about what I think about it.

I wish you all the best success,

Shen
