Zelda, Metroid, and Dizzy Combine to Form... Spud's Quest!

This is Spud's Quest, a neat little six-hour (that's playtime, not development time) puzzle-adventure with a Metroid-inspired upgrade system, temples based on Zelda's, and gameplay inspired by classic European platformer series Dizzy. It is set to hit PC this summer, and can be pre-ordered via its official website. » 7/15/13 6:40am 7/15/13 6:40am
