Metroid + Monkey Island = The Fall

As you can probably tell this is a game set to contain action, exploration and riddles that require interaction with the environment and objects, all of it presented in lush 2D. Its plot will give you the role of an artificial intelligence that takes control of a high tech combat suit whose unconscious owner you will be protecting. Unfortunately, you must also obey functionality rules that often hinder your progress and you need to inventively work around. For example in the gameplay video below you will see that by purposefully putting the life of the pilot in danger you will enable an emergency condition and gain access to previously locked functions.

Naturally, this is another case where the help of like minded people is required. The lowest tier that will reward willing backers with a copy of the game upon its release is $10 (Canadian dollars, about 7€). The campaign's base goal was $17.000 and has already been achieved, though there are additional goals that improve the game which is planned to release for Windows, Mac, Linux, Wii U and possibly other platforms. It's worth noting that all this is for the first part of a planned series. See more on its Kickstarter page.
