Luckslinger is a difficult motion platformer with a luck mechanic and a hip hop soundtrack. The gameplay is difficult, making you savor each well being level you could have. It’s all about conserving your head cool in sizzling conditions. And looking out fashionable whereas doing so.

I’m Donald, the sport designer of Luckslinger. Our studio consists of a staff of three. After creating a number of smaller video games we knew we needed to create one thing greater. A full recreation as a substitute of small demo sort video games. So we got here collectively and went by the sport thought notes we had, searching for one thing we favored.


That is the place the road “a recreation about luck” got here up. It was written down most likely a yr earlier however by no means used. We thought we didn’t actually know any video games that target luck being an precise recreation mechanic. So we began fascinated with what we may do with it, we selected an motion platformer with a western theme. Largely as a result of we felt this time interval had a lot to do with luck, particularly the tough surroundings and the seek for gold and riches. But in addition as a result of I actually needed to deep dive within the spaghetti western movie style and watch as many as I may for inspiration.

After engaged on a prototype for a couple of week or two, the gameplay began taking form. However total it was lacking one thing. It was a little bit bit boring and wanted some punch. All three of us being hiphopheads, we labored on it whereas listening to hip hop, someplace we will need to have been enjoying with a pleasant monitor within the background as a result of instantly all of it match. It felt actually cool and contemporary to us. We knew the anime Samurai Champloo may do samurai and hip hop, so we felt that we are able to do cowboys and hip hop. And so the primary thought was born.


With the sport in state we uploaded the PC model to Newgrounds. The place we acquired numerous cool and helpful suggestions. Sufficient to persuade us that we have been creating one thing enjoyable. So we stored going. We visited many conventions and get-togethers in The Netherlands and a few in Germany. We have been invited by Indiecade to showcase on E3, so we did. It was a extremely wonderful time but in addition insanely busy. It glided by quick! Seeing individuals play our little creation was great. At E3 I even acquired to satisfy one in all my heroes, Warren Spector (the director of the unique Deus Ex).

After releasing Luckslinger on PC we did some patchwork and we began engaged on a brand new venture. That is when 2Awesome Studio (which we had met on the occasions) talked to us about making a console model. And right here it’s!


We hope you dig it. We actually loved creating it, and seeing individuals expertise it.
