Description
Release date: January 2017
Spheroids starts with Lucas, an introverted and a bit jumpy Canadian boy, goes to Otto's garage. Otto is a crazy paranoic genius scientist that's been years studying a possible conspiration to hide the existence of alternative universes to the cubic world they live in. When Otto appears he comes screaming that he was right, that the invasion is real. It's happening all over the world. The player will take control of Lucas to try to stop that invasion and save humanity of these dangerous aliens: the Spheroids.

Throughout the 32 levels in the game Lucas will have to run through different environments full of platforms to negotiate, hazards to avoid, and different enemies to destroy with the help of the 'modified-drilling-hook' Otto lends him, as well as other unusual widgets he'll provide throughout the adventure such as a grappling hook and some gravity-inverting boots.

Spheroids is a 2D sidescroller that mixes mechanics from classic platformers such as Super Mario Bros or Umihara Kawase with 'combat' sections inspired in Pang! (or Buster Brothers), within a comical science-fiction setting inspired by films and series such as Futurama, Rick & Morty, Ghostbusters, Back to the Future or Spaceballs.

Voted yes!! Awesome game! I'm little surprised to see this game pending to be greenlit. Probably you need to expand the Description Page and make it more friendly (visual titles, animated chars and GIF's, etc...). Also I see as an error to show the real gameplay of the game at minute 1:30. Ok, you want to explain the history. So I would show few seconds of gameplay at the beginning of video, and then start to explain the history. Moreover, you can try to push the greenlight in Facebook and Steam groups. Good luck and good work

Thanks for your support! The game already launched on Wii U and launches tomorrow on PS4/PSVita. I've got my fingers crossed waiting to be greenlit soon.

Thanks!
