We mentioned Spud’s Quest late last year, when it achieved its rather humble Kickstarter goal of £5,000. It promised to recreate platform adventure games of yesteryear, with it’s biggest comparison being the Dizzy series but including elements of Zelda and Metroid in the mix.

From the video that was released today it appears to do just that, showing some gameplay footage and old-school music, and perhaps adding an extra touch of Wonderboy in Monsterland to the mix there too… Spud is seen (in some admittedly very quick cuts, thus allowing some uncertainty) exploring a number of environments, learning skills, speaking to people and solving moving block and reflected light puzzles. He also appears able to fall more than a small distance without dying – not naming any eggs suffering that fate repeatedly in their own games…

Spud’s Quest is due for release “July/August 2013″ (more likely August)


Peter can be described as an old, hairy gamer, a survivor of the console wars of the 1990s, and a part-time MMO addict. He has an especial fondness for retro gaming and observing the progressions in long running gaming series. When scandalously not caught gaming, he can also be found reading comics and fantasy fiction, or practising terrible photography.
