Greenlight and Trailer Launched!
Release date: Early 2017
Native, is a cartoon 2D survival side-scroller set in an alien rainforest. Unique features include a choose-your-own-loot system (no RNG!), minimalist UI, engaging combat (no hack-n-slash!), a simplified crafting system and an environment full of neon bioluminescent goodness. Many key gameplay mechanics are integrated with the environment or come in the form of audio queues. This forces players to be observant if they want to become a true native of the jungle!

// Native //
- Explore an open Alien Rainforest
- Gather exotic fruits and animal pieces
- 28 items and 14 recipes already in the demo, amount of content will at least double for early access release

It's really pretty! Although it's not my kind of game, I hope it will be successful. I'm definitely going to back it with a few bucks too. Good luck!
