Box Kid Adventures is a dynamic, top-down style puzzle game with HD cartoony graphics. The game looks simple, but its gameplay is deep thanks to its inspiration, which includes classic games like Chip’s Challenge, Boulder Dash, Adventures of Lolo, and Robbo.

You are Box Kid, a cardboard toy who must get through levels that are filled with mean enemies and challenging puzzles. Box Kid Adventures will be launching on Steam on January 28th. Here is the launch trailer:

 

“In the age of electronics, the toy-robots became kids’ favourite playthings. However, a young, ambitious designer, created a new toy. A Kid. A Box Kid! A toy made out of cardboard. A toy that should breathe life into the world of imagination. But the company’s CEO wasn’t impressed by that idea and he threw Box Kid into the garbage chute… But was that the real reason? Unveil the truth, as you help Box Kid discover his destiny!”

Players can earn medals to unlock more characters and levels to play with, as they uncover the ultimate destiny of Box Kid. The puzzles are designed to capture the spirit of the 8-bit era, but with new HD graphics. Box Kid Adventures also comes with a level editor, allowing players to create their own levels for Box Kid to tackle and to share with the world. You can find out more at BoxKidAdventures.com, and at the game’s Steam page.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
