The Demo is for Windows PC only. Sorry - no Mac or other versions yet.

THE GAME:

Iya, a middle-school student, is out for a walk one evening, yet as she strolls down the street there is a blinding flash, and next thing the knows - she's in the middle of a forest. What happened? Can she find a way home? Why is the wildlife so weird and hostile, and why are the woods full of abandoned ruins? Where is she, or better yet - when.

Legend of Iya (LOI) is a 2D, story-driven metroidvania game in development for Windows PC. The game features top-shelf pixel art graphics and animation reminiscent of 16 and early 32-bit era, with lush, varied environments, tons of animation and detail, and some crazy-huge setpieces. In addition to traditional pixel animation the game features huge modular bosses and enemies. Majority of the in-game combat is melee-based, but the character can collect and use various magical-ish powers to give her ranged attacks as well as supernatural abilities.

Planned features:

* A vast, labyrinthine world reminiscent of the classics like Super Metroid and Castlevania SOTN.
* Full soundtrack by Magnus "Philter" Gangstad. (if Kickstarter succeeds)
* High quality graphics - like the best SNES could offer. None of that crude hipster-pixel here!
* Tons upon tons of quality sprite animation! Like, seriously - the player alone already has somewhere in the vicinity of 500 frames.
* Chunky pixels! The game runs in a 256x192 424x240 native resolution of pixelated retro goodness. (might be bumped up to 320x200 at some point)
* Dozens of new powers, upgrades and secrets to discover and collect.
* Juggle-tastic melee combat.
* Massive boss battles and set-pieces.
* A bunch of extras, like a recoded version of the ZX Spectrum-original Legend of Iya!

I will put up a Coming Soon steam page as soon as I have enough material to cut a trailer.

To the developer, some of us can still visit the Greenlight pages so my questions to you are: do you have a website and when do you estimate that your beloved game will get a Steam release? Thanks man.

Thank you very much for your kind words. This level of detail is what is making this project take ages. That, and initial lack of clear gameplay direction.
If you'd like, you can follow me on Twitter (@DarkFalzXL) or Youtube
(https://www.youtube.com/user/darkfalzx) , where I post semi-frequent updates of this and some other projects of mine. On my youtube channel there is a playlist "Legend of Iya WIP Videos" where I post unlisted snapshots of the game sections I am currently working on.

I'm just blown away by how much art and style and CLEAR love and dedication has gone in to everything about this game. It looks like it was hand crafted, and like someone was paying very close attention to every detail of it - how different everything looks yet still somehow remains in the same style. You've got a really great property here!

I found this game through Spotify. Listening to Philter - Forest Of Wonder, said it was the original soundtrack for this game - came looking to play it even though it was old (2013?) but found that it's not done yet.

Have you considered a kickstarter or patreon or some other crodwfunding source? Is money the issue, or are you looking for management / talent?

This game looks really good, and it's a shame that it's languishing in relative obscurity and lack of completeness. Let's get you some talent and some help and some money and get this thing shipped!
