Modern Retro

Children of the Elves represents the natural evolution of the mid-80s to mid-90s Arcade/Amiga single-screen platform games. Modern action platformers have largely abandoned key gaming elements of the past, such as Perma-Death and Lives. This in my opinion affects game design, pacing, and the sense of excitement, familiarity and achievement negatively. Children of the Elves reintroduces these retro ingredients along with modern components, such as session saving and sparse checkpoints. It also introduces unique twists to the genre, such as true co-op (Lives and Points shared among players), combos and power-up scaling.

The Hooks


64ppi laboriously hand-drawn, smoothly animated pixel-art, for a uniquely sharp HD visual style (in-game and cutscenes). Full-screen Pixel Perfect support (no black bars) for most popular resolutions (FHD, QHD, UWHD, WQHD, 4k). This is how I imagined an Amiga platformer would look today, had Commodore’s machines and chipsets continued to evolve and thrive.
