Independent developers Obscure Cloud are trying to bring back Ghosts ‘n Goblins for modern audiences with Saint George | The Tree Of Secrets, a fast paced medieval fantasy platformer seeking funding on Kickstarter.
Launched last month, the crowdfunding campaign for Saint George is currently sitting at €1,231 of its €130,000 goal, with 38 days to go before it’s over. A playable demo is available on Steam, and an €20 pledge should be enough to secure a digital copy of the game, scheduled for release in 2019.
According to the developers, Saint George | The Tree of Secrets is their dream project and they have been working on it for more than a year, but they require more money if it’s ever going to see the light of the day in a timely fashion.
Saint George is a new breed of fast paced medieval-fantasy platformer that takes it’s DNA into authors childhood games and adds modern twists for todays explorers : up to 4K graphics, ultra fluid display engine and wide lands to explore with hundreds of creatures and unique world bosses.
Make your way through the kingdom lands infested with creatures and demons… Those unwanted guests have been summoned by an evil entity that was forgotten and living there a long time ago. Almost all citizens of the kingdom disappeared… Find out what really happened and stop this disaster.
This game is a love letter to oldies like Ghost’n Goblins, Ghouls’n Ghosts, Black Tiger, Castlevania, Stormlord, Golden Axe and so many other games that shaped our hearts and still inspire us today. We also are deeply inspired by Studio Ghibli master pieces such as Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke.
