Indie game developer bZillions announced a 2D platformer called Little Hawk.
A village sits at the edge of a magical forest, ravaged by evil. The Chief is especially distraught because his only child, Princess Kyra, has been captured. With their ranks severely diminished, an unlikely hero emerges in the form of a young man with a big heart, street smarts, and a lot of swagger. As Little Hawk, players use their keen instincts, quick reflexes, and unwavering resolve to overcome many challenges. While Little Hawk makes his way through each zone, Princess Kyra is trapped in the dungeons deep beneath a cursed castle. As players complete each zone, they then play as Kyra and attempt to ascend from the bowels of the castle toward freedom. But even in escape, the chance for peril still remains.
"We wanted to recreate the excitement and personality of the games we love playing, like Mario and Rayman," says Steve Weiss, CEO of bZillions. "In addition to the great characters, lush settings and awesome audio, we've added a few little tricks of our own that we think the players will really enjoy."
Little Hawk releases this Fall on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
