Grave Chase has been Greenlit!
Release date: Spring 2017
GRAVE CHASE is a retro-inspired 2D horror action-adventure game in which a brother & sister must survive the month of October in the deadly graveyard of a ghoulish groundskeeper. An all new game from the creator of ABOBO'S BIG ADVENTURE and BIONIC CHAINSAW POGO GORILLA!

Development of this game is now COMPLETE! There will be no waiting in early access for years. Once it's greenlit, GRAVE CHASE will be ready to play. So if you like everything you see here, please give it a vote so we can decide on a release date! (most likely early Fall 2017)

The Groundskeeper always keeps his graveyard full. Not by having clients, but by killing all the people in town and throwing their body parts into open graves! One night, however, he murdered the parents of two kids who saw the whole awful act take place. Now, they've sworn to get revenge using science... and shovels! Together, these siblings hatched a plan to go into the graveyard, dig up body parts, and use science to turn them into an army of monsters to tear the Groundskeeper limb from limb.

It's not going to be easy, however, for the Groundskeeper patrols the graveyard constantly with his lantern, searching for trespassers whom he can relentlessly chop into pieces with his meat cleaver. As they traverse his nightmarish graveyard, the siblings will also have to use their shovels to battle hordes of the undead, skeletons, blobs, axe-wielding psychopaths, ghosts, mummies, and much more. Hey, it's a graveyard; who else would you expect to be hanging around there late at night?

Grave Chase features old school 2D pixel art, a steady flow of spooky new enemies throughout the game, 31 stages of increasing difficulty, 4 additional unlockable game modes for even more replay value, over 50 achievement medals , special power-ups, an all original soundtrack, windowed or fullscreen play, gamepad support, and you can choose to play as the girl or boy while the other stays home and builds monsters using the body parts you collect.

Can you survive this Grave Chase through the month of October, culminating on Halloween?

Get ready to RUN, RUN RUN, or you'll surely DIE, DIE, DIE!

HUGE thanks to all of you who voted for Grave Chase! We're adding in over 50 achievement medals, trading cards, and more to the game to make it extra fun to play on Steam. We'll most likely release it this fall to coincide with the 2017 Halloween season, so keep an eye out for announcements regarding a release date. Also, if you're going to be at the San Diego Comic-Con in July, we plan on having Grave Chase there for everybody to come try out!

Another tester here, I agree on everything with the guy below! Really worth your time if you're into arcade-style pixel action.

Play tester here:

Grave Chase is that perfect old school formula where you take a simple idea (dig up graves to find body parts) and start slowly adding other elements to it. A new enemy here, a new obstacle there, and just enough time to adjust to each new bit individually before you have to start thinking about how to handle them in groups, or all at once! All that coupled with some increasingly diabolical level design.

If you want to make it through the later levels, you've got to become a typhoon of digging and swinging, eyeballing the safest routes through the graveyard and doing quick calculations about whether or not you can squeeze in one last shovelful before you have to turn around and beat back the advancing hordes.

They're putting on the final touches (achievements, cards, etc). No worries about it getting greenlit and then spending a year or two in Early Access.

Playing it, you can really tell the game is a labor of love. I hope you'll give it your vote.

I get a Zombies Ate My Neighbors vibe from this. Really looking forward to this!

If anyone deserves a chance to be on steam its Rog. He's been producing top quality entertainment for years and not gotten nearly enough recognition.

Making weird monsters looks like fun, plus I enjoyed playing their past games.

I've loved the previous games (biblically) from this developer and am looking forward to this one!!!!
