Refried: Burrito Galaxy 64 Expands Taquito Tower

By Adam Smith on January 13th, 2014 at 12:00 pm.

The best thing about Ludum Dare is the regular avalanche of tiny games that people produce during the event. The worst thing is discovering a brilliant concept or idea, and waiting for a larger continuation to be released. Porpentine spotted Taquito Tower during Ludum Dare 27 and described it as follows:

A tower of cube mazes filled with burritos and sassy enemies. Semi-turn based, so actions take place every second…Having at least 5 burritos makes your attacks more powerful, but eating them regains health.

An expanded version, Burrito Galaxy 64, is now seeking votes on Steam Greenlight. The trailer is pleasing.

The game is (not) raising funds via Kickfarter, which is a joke that seems to involve around 0.004% of the imagination in the game itself.

As for how it’ll play, I’m assuming it’ll share the semi turn-based nature of Taquito Tower but the feature list suggests sinister additions.

FEATURES -
GROOVY COOL TUNES
WIGGITY WACK HAND DRAW ART
SUPER SWAG ITEMS AND COMBAT
TOTALLY TOOBULAR CONVERSATION WITH ALIENS AND HIDDEN RAPPER GIRL
IF YOU DIE IN THE GAME YOU DIE FOR REAL

I don’t want to die for real! If you are willing to risk a cursed digital demise, vote for Burrito Galaxy 64 now or try Taquito Tower for free.

A new video is due soon, showing some of the new content.

    Is the title of this post a collection of random words?

    Magdev had a custom build of Taquito Tower at at Lucky Frame’s Tacos, Bluegrass & Videogames event on Saturday. There’s a shot of their custom arcade cabinet halfway through the second slideshow here http://luckyframe.co.uk/works/tacos/ :)
