Aegis: 16-bit retro adventure with TD inspired combat
Hey all! First time posting on RPS! We're Studio Guts with a game called Aegis.
HUMANITY HAS BEENBROUGHT BACK INTO THE DARK AGES BUT REMNANTS OF A ONCE HIGHLY ADVANCED CIVILIZATION STILL EXIST.
In this world where control over lost technologies equals power, two explorers from a small village have just discovered Aegis, the legendary weapon said to have brought on the calamity. Although its true purpose remains mysterious, one thing is certain - powerful people will stop at nothing to control it.
Aegis is a 2D Adventure Platformer with Tower Defense inspired combat. We're also enamored with the SNES-era and are spending a lot of time making the sure the art work really recalls the golden era of 16-bit gaming. We will be launching a kickstarter in July and are expecting to release it next year!
Here is our Pre-Alpha Trailer!

This is one of my favorites,demonstrating the flexibility of the character swapping mechanic. The player sees Bart is in trouble- the slime monster is gobbling his turrets- and is able to swap back to Clu in order to come assist Bart.
Every playable character in the Aegis universe has a unique set of abilities. Bart's is the ability tobuild different kinds of blocks to defeat enemies, navigate the environment and solve puzzles. Here, he builds an auto turret to takeout the bugs blocking his path.
