Narita Boy -The retro futuristic pixel game is a Kickstarter project for a pixel art game created by Studio Koba. I found out about this game design project while visiting the Behance profile of Eduardo "edujante" Fornieles, a freelance concept artist and founder of studio Koba currently based in Tokyo, Japan. For me, as a fan and addicted to everything 80s, this game is a homage to that beautiful decade and had to be feature here on Abduzeedo. Also Help Eduardo get the game funded on Kickstarter
About the game
You are Narita Boy, a legendary digital hero in an epic quest through simultaneous dimensions.
The digital kingdom is under attack and you are called as their last hope of survival. Explore a vast world to find the techno sword, the only effective weapon against the threat.
The aesthetic of the game is inspired by retro pixel adventures (Castlevania, Another World, Double Dragon) with a modern touch (Superbrothers, Sword and Sorcery) and an 80s plot homage (Ready Player One, He-Man, The Last Starfighter), accompanied by the retro synth touch of the old glory days
