Description

The Legend of Tobimaru is a 2D action platformer game that sees you playing a ninja on a journey to defeat the enemies that destroyed his village and collect the fragments of his Protector’s Orb. The game takes inspiration from retro classics such as Super Mario Brothers and Mega Man, as well as classic fighting games such as Street Fighter II. It is a 2D action platformer with combat inspired by fighting games and challenging combat puzzles. It has a linear progression with minimal backtracking to differentiate it from Metroidvania games.

History

The project started out with a bunch of 2D boxes in Unity. Then it quickly evolved into a pretty serious action platformer.

The game was greenlit on Steam in November 2016 which is a fairly big achievement for a studio that didn't even know what Steam was 10 months prior to it.

Since then, we've been pushing our limits in every aspect of game development to make The Legend of Tobimaru as fun and engaging as we can!
