Publisher EuroVideo and developer Bonus Level Entertainment will bring their 2D action platformer, FOX n FORESTS, to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac and Linux in spring 2018. In FOX n FORESTS, players assume the role of Rick the Fox. Armed with a magical crossbow granting the powerful ability to change between two seasons in a level, Rick can freeze his surroundings in winter, create new platforms out of falling leaves in autumn, and use a host of other powers.
Only by mastering the seasons will Rick be able to outfox his enemies, explore the mystic forest, solve brain-teasing puzzles, claim victory against colossal bosses, and bring the mystery of the fifth season to light. Catch a glimpse of FOX n FORESTS´ retro gameplay in the new teaser trailer below:
Inspired by classic games including Super Ghouls ‘n’ Ghosts, Wonder Boy in Monster World, ActRaiser 2, and the Castlevania and Zelda series, FOX n FORESTS will be both accessible and challenging. The game combines retro charm with modern game design while offering glorious 16-Bit graphics and a chiptune soundtrack.
“FOX n FORESTS will surely speak to a wide audience,” says Marc Wardenga, Head of Games at EuroVideo. “References to the golden age of classic 16-Bit games, mixed with a unique soundtrack and contemporary, precise, and accessible gameplay, will bring back fond memories of retro games.”
Successfully funded via Kickstarter in 2016, FOX n FORESTS will be the first title from EuroVideo’s new games label Wild River and will make its North American debut at PAX East in booth 10054.
