KUBO 3

Post by dale_coop » Tue Feb 25, 2020 1:01 pm

When he was creating his previous game (for the NESmaker Byte-Off 2019 competition), my son had lots of ideas that he would have liked to incorporate into his entry game. However, due to lack of time, he wrote everything down and told me that it would be for the next game... that how was created KUBO 3.

The game takes up the adventures of the cowboy turtle where the previous episode ended. The Evil Mole kidnapped the villagers... and Kubo will have to find 4 sacred objects in order to free them.

It took my son, Seiji, almost a year to make this game. As usual, we mostly worked on it for a few days during school holidays or on rainy weekends.
He wanted to finish it before our February vacations because he wanted to hand it to Joe Granato, the creator of NESmaker (on a short trip to Florida for a few days).

I played through this week and made it a good ways through the cave, clouds and water areas. I really love the overall vibe and the music was really fitting. I thought that mix of top down and side scrolling was really cleaver and the fact that you have water effecting the player sprite is amazing!
