The Kickstarter campaign for Box Hedge Games' Super Mighty Power Man – a Mega Man-inspired 2D action platformer – has gone live. Box Hedge are asking for $58,362 to make it happen. The game is aiming to hit Nintendo Switch, Nintendo 3DS and PC, with stretch goals planned for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions.
Here's a small snippet of the campaign's overview:
Super Mighty Power Man is greatly inspired by the famous Mega Man game series as well as others including: Castlevania, Contra, Duck Tales, Kirby, Super Mario Bros. and more recent ones like VVVVVV, Retro City Rampage and Shovel Knight.
Besides being a true love letter to the NES legendary gaming era, it is above all a tribute to the renowned Blue Bomber and our passion for such games that has stayed with us since childhood.
Take control of Corey, a boy who accidentally finds himself caught in a most unexpected adventure to save the galaxy. Helped by a clumsy extraterrestrial robot named Robby, and armed with a mysterious device called ‘The Power Grasp’, Corey must defend the Earth from the spreading evil forces of General Mok. He will need to fight (and jump) his way through deadly environments, hordes of monsters, and other hazardous traps to free occupied planets from the tyranny of his enemy’s lieutenants.
‘The Power Grasp’ grants Corey superhuman powers, allowing him to merge with other lifeforms and become one of the many forms of Super Mighty Power Man!
Seems pretty cool! Check out the full campaign here.
