Nick Pasto, the developer behind the excellent Abobo's Big Adventure, is making a new game. With his daughter. Who is eight.
It's not for a school project, it's not some cheap little gimmick game, it's a real game, one that's promising to be a fairly epic 2D adventure, with boss fights, levelling-up, fancy gear, the works.
While Pasto is obviously handling stuff like coding and the final art, his daughter Bella did the concept art for the game, stars as a main voice actor and also serves as a "play-tester".
It's nice that she's handling more than just being a token presence; it'll be neat playing through a game where characters were dreamed up by an eight year-old, because eight year-olds are crazy.
The game's called Super Chibi Knight, and it's a "full-size sequel" to Chibi Knight, a hit web game. It's currently up on both Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight.
