Retro gaming fans will have something to be excited about next month, because Fox n Forests will be releasing on May 17th. To celebrate, the developer has posted a new trailer for level 2:1 in Fungus Forest. The hero, Rick the Fox, moves steadily toward the goal while finding treasures, secrets, and strategically changing the seasons along the way.
Fox n Forests is filled with 16-bit goodness from the music and sound effects to retro visuals. We would guess that someone on the development team had a SNES as a kid, and the developers admit to pulling inspiration from classics such as Castlevania and Zelda. You could definitely choose worse inspirations.
Fox n Forests seems like a return to a simpler time in gaming when we could stay up all night, instead of falling asleep on the couch a little after 10:00. Although it may not be a time machine, it appears to be pulling the ideas and feel onto modern consoles.
We look forward to seeing if it brings up warm feelings of nostalgia when Fox n Forests releases May 17th.
Press Release from EuroVideo
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
