Iconoclasts is nearly here – see it in action

I've been writing about videogames going on about eight years now. For the majority of that time, I've had one eye firmly glued to Iconoclasts, an ambitious metroidvania by solo Swedish developer Joakim 'Konjak' Sandberg. It's been in development over six years now, and is finally, tantalisingly close to release. Word is that Iconoclasts is now effectively feature-complete and in the final stages of development…

The Iconoclasts Still A Stunning Action Platformer

The Iconoclasts [official site] is coming, The Iconoclasts is coming! After a years-long development period, one-person creator Joakim "Konjak" Sandberg has partnered with studio Bifrost Entertainment to finish the action-platformer. Their work has already borne fruit in the form of a new trailer below - the first, I think, since 2012.

The Iconoclasts Impressions

I first saw this over at the Indiegames Blog- The Iconoclasts is a remarkable, unfinished freeware platformer by indie dev Konjak. Not only is what's here beautiful and whip-smart, it's consistently funny and even touching. Download it here, or, if you'd prefer, you can read about why you should take an interest in supporting this game after the jump.
