On the heels of a successful introduction at GDC 2017, indie game developer bZillions recently announced the upcoming 2D platformer Little Hawk. Slated for release in fall 2017, the game will launch initially on Steam, followed by releases on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Little Hawk immerses the player in an epic struggle to save their village and its denizens while rescuing the Chief’s daughter, restoring magical totems and defeating the forces of evil.
“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.”
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.
Key features of the game include:
- Totem Superpowers: Earn sacred totems and gain their mystical powers! Defeat gigantic bosses in every land and collect their animal totems to power up with secret abilities!
- The Heroes: Two heroes are better than one! Play as both Little Hawk and Kyra to save the world!
- Choose your path: Play the worlds in any order as you journey towards the evil castle.
bZillions has also launched a Kickstarter campaign to support the completion of the game. For more information, visit https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2012512643/little-hawk.
