Crescent Moon Games have just revealed two amazing looking games and launched a brand spanking new website to celebrate. The team behind the critically acclaimed action RPG Ravensword: The Fallen King (check out my review for Pocketfullofapps – ’tis from back in the days before iFanzine btw) have released details of aMario-esque 3d platformer (Ultra Kid: Mystery of the Mutants) and visually stunning turn-based RPG (Rimelands: Hammer of Thor).
Ultra Kid: Mystery of the Mutantsis inspired by fantastic games like MegaMan, Kid Icarus, and Super Mario Galaxy. In Ultra Kid players will be flying their rockets through space to land on different moons and planets, where they will find crazy creatures to fight and dark tunnels to explore. With a mixture of both 2.5D and 3D platforming, you’ll collect weapons and suit upgrades as you progress through the game to help you complete your main mission of saving the galaxy from Dr. Ridalin, who is quite evil. Ultra Kid is still in development.
Stay tuned for more info, screenshots, video, and (fingers crossed) an interview with team Ravensword in the coming weeks. In the meantime enjoy this amazing eye-candy courtesy ofhttp://www.crescentmoongames.com/
