Hello everybody! Here we are, the creators of Landflix Odyssey and founders of Fantastico Studio. Three things that define us? Videogames, beer and TV shows.
These are also the ingredients of our last videogame project, “Landflix Odyssey” and the reasons why everything started. We initiated the development of the game in September 2017, during a “beer night” organised to cheer up one of us, who was going through a bad love situation. He was playing with video games and watching TV series all day long, so we wanted to bring him out of his shell by creating something cool. Then that idea: “Why don’t we create a videogame that brings us inside the awesome world of TV shows?!”. Given the immediate enthusiasm shown by all of us, we started that same night to brainstorm concept ideas and basic game mechanics. The creative seed was then planted and we couldn’t help it.
First thing first, we started to collect money to support the development: we run through our own savings and asked for a small extra-funding from a fellow Roman game developer. Done. Then we worked, worked and worked effortlessly, moved by a great deal of enthusiasm, which never abandoned us even in the most difficult moments.
Landflix Odissey is a 2D platformer that ranges from classical to other typical run and gun and metroidvania gameplay types, in a delightful retro style pixel art. You’ll play as Larry, a big lazy TV series addicted, who ends up in a dimension based on his favourite Landflix's shows (a video-on-demand parody). Make him travel through many environments to gather new powers, while helping the TV series characters defeating an evil genius who is trying to conquer the world. You’ll also have to help him gather blueprints for his scientist relative, Uncle Doc, to power up his own skills and win the battle.
The main features you’ll enjoy in the game are:
A lot has happened since the beginning and lot has yet to come. What has started as an adventure is about to see the light pretty soon, that’s for sure!
And we are so excited about the Kickstarter campaign we are about to launch (which will include the game demo) we cannot think about anything else. It’s like we’ve worked for an entire life to arrive to the point where we are now, and even if we always try to keep a clear head, we are aware that what is at stake is very high, it’s about our future and our passion. We’re also thrilled to receive your feedbacks, suggestions and to hear your thoughts about the game’s progress and future possibilities (new TV shows, new characters, new power-ups and so on). We want you and your engagement to be the most important part of the game, so any contribution is most welcomed!
We have launched this Kickstarter campaign to gather part of the missing funds necessary to cover the costs of art design, sounds and testing (and possibly to achieve more stretch goals). The game’s release is expected for as early as next September 2018, on PC and consoles (Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch). The rewards to the backers are very rich and exciting, so take a look yourself and please support us as much as you can!
This will be possible only thanks to all of you!
