I don’t know what it is about pixel art, but it really speaks to me. Maybe it’s just knowing how much time and effort goes into every little detail that I respect. Either way, Furwind has it in spades. It has aspects of of a lot of classic games, and lots of great visual details. This delightful 2D indie platformer has you in control of a Fox creature on his quest through many lush and dangerous environments. Developed by Boomfire Games and to be published by Eastasiasoft Limited, it is slated to come to PS4 and the Vita in a snazzy physical edition. Pre-orders open up in a couple days, and I have to say I’m really excited about this release. Though I don’t know if it qualifies as a Metroidvania, it really reminds me of games like Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight. If you love retro and physical goodies, check out the full details on Furwind below.
