Perlin & Pinpin - The Robin Tower (2 episodes available!)

Post by LIZARDRIVE » Sun Dec 15, 2019 7:18 pm

Hello folks!

We released few days ago the first demo for "Perlin & Pinpin - The Robin Tower".
Full game intends to be a compilation of minigames with side quests on top.
You play as Prince Perlin, whose beloved Princess has been kidnapped by the devilish Pinpin.

First level takes place in the school, but each stage of the Robin Tower will look different.
There is one hidden minigame to be found, too!

You can DL demo here: https://lizardrive.itch.io/perlin-and-p ... obin-tower

I liked the dialogs Golden Sun based.

Good Job!

Thank you Cloudstrifer for trying out our first demo! :D

I hope we can release a second one soon, but good things take time.
At least our engine is flexible enough to integrate new minigames easily!

I finally had a chance to try this yesterday on a real MD and CRT.
I was genuinely impressed with your results guys.
I loved the care given to the animation of all the characters, and the talking sounds using the PSG, just like Landstalker did.

Truly terrific job and I hope you guys keep working on it.

Thanks a lot for your heart warming feedback, which I transmitted to our pixel artist.
He does an awesome job indeed, while I code and do the SFX and music.
Did you find the hidden minigame? You need to do things and talk to people in order to find it :wink:

We keep on working indeed! We keep people posted about our work on Patreon and Twitter whenever we can / think about it.
2nd and 3rd minigames are already coded, but require all remaining assets (including puns) to be tuned, so you may wait before seeing these demos officially released.

Awesome, well done guys.
I haven't had time to work on my projects in a while but I've been thinking about your project and whether you have been able to work on it or not - I'm glad you have!
I look forward to trying it out soon.

Hi Lizarddrive,
I finally had a chance to try your new demo.
I messed around with the first puzzle for a while and realised I had no idea how to solve slider puzzles properly, so I watched a few tutorial videos and then practiced with some javascript based slider puzzles online until I was confident enough to beat the ones in this demo.

So, you can be proud that you made a demo that made me want to beat it enough to learn a new skill haha.

I love what you guys are doing with this. And the dialog made me chuckle as well. And I love the goose voice, so cute!

Great work and I look forward to seeing where you take it!

Nice to see a proper puzzle game, I’m so glad!

Last time I tried a puzzle game was like:”1 2, now solve it” (I think you can do it better than that), and I was not really in the mood for new puzzles, but thanks to you I’m back in the game, literally.
Help. Spanish TVs are brain washing people to be hostile to me.

Hello there!
I somehow solve this puzzle without really knowing what I'm doing.
This is the kind of game I hated as a kid, and saw no reason why other people should not suffer! :-D
I'm glad we could bring some new skill as well as a bit of laughter to your life.
Not everyone checks everything in the game, but hope those who do enjoy all the details we are pouring into it.

Hello!
I am glad to read this!
Feel free to try our first episode in case you did not already.
It even contains an hidden minigame!

Cheers!
