Midora needs you! (Vote inside)
Release date: Q1 2016

If you wish to learn everything about the game in one go, have a look at the complete interview we did on with Ben Lamoreux.[]


Midora (pronounced "mid-ora") is a love letter to the classic 2D action-adventure games, like The Legend of Zelda or Secret of Mana, that have frequented consoles and enamored audiences for generations. With a charming world to explore, new mechanics to learn and quests to fulfill all while hopefully tugging at your nostalgic heartstrings, Midora seeks to bring you the same tried and true feel of familiar titles, but with the grace of a new, modern experience, with in a beautiful, 100% pixel art setting.

  • Fight using swords, shields, runes, bombs and many more!
  • Manipulate water to beat your opponents and have it interact with other elements to solve puzzles.
  • Crawl through 12 unforgiving dungeons, each with their own challenges, unique item and boss.
  • Meet colorful characters that will impact the story and change the way you play.
  • Collect, mine, fish, enchant, alchemize and craft over 200 unique items. From common food to potions with silly effects, from crafting materials to devastating runes.. and more!
  • Journey on a huge map, from your village at the bottom of the map to the very top of a volcano, making stops in various cities and visiting the King's castle.


Midora is a colorful world, crafted by an ancient architect with the elements as his tools. For an eternity after this creation, those elements populated the world, fashioning cultures and kingdoms all their own. They contested each other for land and prestige, and when the world was finally overwhelmed by the strife, the architect came back down to seal the elements away, preserving the world for its lesser inhabitants.

This harmony lasted for centuries, until even the eldest tribes had only vague memories of the conflict and its participants. The town of Seawind will be the first to remember the Inferno in earnest.

Enter Snow, the lead character of this adventure. A young girl growing up on the edge of Seawind, she embarks on what starts as just a simple chore, only to uncover the catalyst in a war as old as the world she lives in. On her journey, she will encounter help and obstacles in various forms. Elderly town matrons, kings, long extinct races, burly blacksmiths, and the living elements themselves will play a role in Midora's newest story, but it falls to Snow herself to see it to the end.


Not a lot of gameplay was shown in the video simply because there isn't that much to do yet. We spent a year working on tools to create the game, and we are ready to create it with our own level editor, game engine and even scripting language. Help us make this project a reality by pledging today on kickstarter! Starting at $10, you will receive a Steam key once the game is released, for PC, Mac or Linux.

@Mhyr - It would have been nice if that info had been in a KS update. I've just wasted an hour searching for info after the KS promises of Early Access and "another update on Monday, with screenshots" that was posted over a month ago.

And I agree with @Argonaut kazunee completely, btw. We love the game and we appreciate your hard work on it. We just want to not have to hunt for info. :)

Just calm and wait.
Thought gamer wants a finished game, not a game that has much bugs.

Thanks for the heads up ;>

@Cyrax: We are and have been working on getting a publishing deal to produce the game and bring it everywhere. The game's development has slowed down but will be back once we get a deal, as well as tons of updates. More news on all of that soon!

So I'm back, curious on when and/or if this game is still gonna be released? It is now July, Summer Sale is over and we all heard about E3 and what to expect with new games. This game is still high on my list. So devs, what's the word :) Still busy or...?
