Happy Hell - June 2016 Update
Underwater in the underworld!
Description
Release date: When it's done 'n' fun, 201X
A 3D platformer set in cartoon Hell. Sell Spooky Poo's soul to The Devil in exchange for black magick powers & one wicked wish.

Welcome!

Happy Hell is a one-human endeavour to conjure The Spirit of Platformers Past, not for the mere sake of nostalgia! But as a kind of phantom fuel that might propel us into wilder, freakier video space.

A deal with the Devil
Happy Hell begins with Spooky Poo, a cartoon cat thing that wants to make a wish. When The Devil is summoned for this purpose, He agrees on one condition: Spooky Poo must survive nine descending levels of Happy Hell.

Wicked wonderland
No one has ever escaped Happy Hell's mind altering exploration, occultoon puzzles and slapstick action. Luckily, the Devil is willing to sweeten the deal for Spooky! All you need to do is find a Soul Sucker.

Selling Spooky's soul
Soul Suckers grant Spooky Poo one unique ability in exchange for a little soul. By selling Spooky's soul, you can buy greater mastery over the underworld. Your path to power is shaped by your path through Hell and how you overcome its challenges. Search, think and fight to win powers like flight, firepower, telepathy and telekinesis.

Anything goes
The journey through Happy Hell is designed to be nonlinear. The usefulness of particular magick powers becomes obvious in many situations, but players can choose to favour certain styles of gameplay at their own pace whether it's shooting, acrobatics, or obsessive sleuthing. While the action is very Mario 64/Banjo, the world progression is more ambiguous and organic (think Dark Souls).

Also, the Devil wants to point out that although it's more fun to blow through Hell with black magick powers, it is entirely possible to survive all the way to His doorstep without selling any of Spooky's soul. Doing it the "good" way, whole soul, is for a special kind of player though...

One big loopy labyrinth
All 9 levels of Happy Hell have at least 9 goals that can be completed in many ways. The reward for completing each goal is a Good Thing. Good Things are non-evil objects that have somehow ended up lost in Hell. Demons love nothing more than getting rid of Good Things in nasty ways. By offering Good Things to these hateful creatures, Spooky can bribe his way through Happy Hell all the way to the bottom.

And there's no right or wrong way to reach the heart of darkness. There are more Good Things than Spooky needs to claim his wish, and Happy Hell is riddled with shortcuts, warps and alternate dimensions...if you can find them!

On a scale of 1 to 10, how much does Spooky's nose freak you out?

I will be giving a status report very soon in the next Kickstarter update regarding release date etc. To put it simply, the game has undergone a lot of changes and it's still probably at least a year off :( I do believe it will be worth it, but appy polly loggies for being such a slow mo sorcerer.

I only had to ask as I hadn't seen updates anywhere for awhile. Glad to know it's still in the works and I understand that these things take time! Appreciate the response! :D

@SlasherJPC Still going, although I don't blame you for thinking so since I haven't updated the Steam page in a while and things have slowed a little bit over the last few months. A new video is coming soon. In the meantime feel free to check out some bits of progress on the FB page: https://www.facebook.com/occultimategames/
