A brand-new game for Game Boy has launched its Kickstarter campaign: Repugnant Bounty!
It is self-described by developer Starlab Games as a Metroidvania-style adventure “featuring a kick ass soundtrack, particle effects, parallax effects, environmental details (such as insects pollinating various plants amongst other things), and more.”
The spritework and environmental effects like falling rain in particular stand out as remarkable for the hardware. The art style also has to be commended for appearing to create a stark and stylish game despite the limitations.
21 backers have already pledged $458 USD ($553.29 CAD) towards its $4,143 USD ($5,000 CAD) goal, with 33 days left to reach it. If you’re looking for more information, of if you’d like to help bring this impressive-looking Game Boy game to life, you can head over to its Kickstarter page. You can also join the game’s official Discord to stay up-to-date on new developments.
An interview/Q&A with the developers behind Repugnant Bounty is coming exclusively to GameBoy.blog later this week. [Update: Published!] Let me know in the comments if there’s any questions you’d like answered!
