Description
Release date: First Quarter 2018
-The strangest love story ever told-
The Wizard and The Slug is a story-driven 2D action platformer with plenty of humor. You play as a Slug who joins a Wizard on a rescue mission. The Wizard will independently support you in various ways, mainly by casting spells during boss battles. Each level also gives you the opportunity to team up with a different companion who will help you out. Roam a fantasy world, make friends and battle thy enemies!

Try the demo! Seriously!
Playable demo (windows): https://silkworm-sweatshop.itch.io/the-wizard-and-the-slug-demo


Features
-Action platforming as a Slug:
Fling parts of your body at the enemies or use them to propel yourself upward. Don't forget to regrow your body!
-A.I companions: The Wizard for boss battles and a different one on each level. Team up with a dog, cactus or banana??
-Not your typical fairy tale story
-Story mode and Arcade mode (which cuts out the story and gets you into the action)
-Charming art style and characters
-Original soundtrack: Blending 8-16 bit with jazz and orchestral flair. Listen to it here! [silkwormsweatshop.bandcamp.com]

I'm a sucker for platform games and retro style graphics so this looks great. Will back on Kickstarter also.

when I look at the animated screenshots, I'd say level design: does not exist
the art is not terrible, idk if you guys made the art or pre-assets
the music just puts me to sleep (idk if the music is bad or not)
so nah.
