Gluggy Lovely: Treasure Adventure World Trailer

Sharks make the best pets
Developers are always suggesting the best way to get into the games industry is to ‘make something’. Not anything, though. You can’t assemble a day bed and walk into Bethesda demanding a job making Skyrim expansions. No, they mean you should make a game, or a bit of a game, or something gamey. If you made a game about a day bed, maybe you’d have a chance? That’s what Stephen Orlando did when he made Treasure Adventure Game, a wonderful and free adventure platformer that was all game (but not about a day bed). He’s since been working on Treasure Adventure World, a remix and remake of it that will definitely place him in the games industry if you buy it. There’s a ‘help me fund it’ page here. Trailer is below.

As you can see, the pixels of the original have been shaved and sanded, and the whole thing looks a lot more polished. With more puzzles and islands to explore, and a shinier front-end it might even be more gamey? Not that there was anything wrong with the original. Well done, Robit Studios, this is clearly in the purview of the games industry. Have a hat!

It should be out in early 2014. Want to help it out on Greenlight?

    I’ll definitely be watching this with interest. Played a good bit of the original, I think I bounced off of it because of the lack of a world map or quest log type thing… I stopped playing for a few days then couldn’t remember what I was doing. They look to be touching this up though, looking forward to actually buying this. The music was great as well.

    That thumbnail just made me think of Wind Waker at first glance, but it’s obviously nothing like that

    Sharks do make the best pets.

    In the normal world, you jump the shark. In Soviet Treasure Adventure World, shark jumps YOU!

    I will definitely be backing this, if only as a thank you for all the joyous hours of adventuring I did for free in the original. It felt wrong that such a well designed and delightful indie game came without a pricetag, just hoping the remake has enough extras to entice me into a second play-through. One to watch!

    Looks lovely, but the graphics kinda lost their charm in the transition. still love the original so much ill definitely be buying this.
