Filtered through the strangeness of the classic PC game 'Another World'. Now, a pixel art driven 2D indie action-platform-thing is not exactly uncommon in the modern era of crowdfunding. But, that being said, there's something about Narita Boy, from indie developer Studio Koba, that has us in a daze. A story about "a legendary digital hero in an epic quest through simultaneous dimensions", with Floppy Disk surfing and Techno Swords.
The Kickstarter campaign went live just the other day so be sure to check it out. It's something that has been on our radar for a few weeks now, and the more we see of it, the more it intrigues us.
Certainly, it features the sort of aesthetic that might only appeal to a limited group of people. But even so, like classic 1980s synthesizer music, how can you not dig it. Also, the story sounds fascinating as it incorporates a Tron-style setup of going inside the computer. Where in this case its the popular and mysterious Narita One games machine.
