Pax South 2015 Indie Game Highlight: Adventures of Pip
You play as Pip, an unlikely 1-pixel hero in a 32-bit world. Given the unique ability to absorb the pixels of his defeated enemies, Pip will have to master three different forms to solve devious puzzles, defeat the Skeleton Queen’s evil minions, and rescue the kidnapped princess.†
You play as Pip who has the unique ability to convert his body from 1-pixel all the way to 32-bit. His special pixel ability allows him to traverse throughout the world in a unique way. Additionally, this alters the platforming aspect of Adventures of Pip a bit. Sure you have to worry about navigating and making the jumps throughout the game but you’ll also have to learn when it would be most useful to switch between the different pixel versions of Pip. It’s yet another addictive platformer that we are looking forward to after seeing it again at Pax South.
This adorable platformer is now fully funded through Kickstarter and will be headed to PC, Mac OS X, and Wii U later this year. The team that is currently working on Adventures of Pip have also worked on Contra 4, BloodRayne: Betrayal, Ratchet & Clank: Going Mobile, DuckTales Remastered, and more.
