A new 2D-Combat platformer is coming to Kickstarter and it looks quite promising. The description is below. With as of this writing 17 days to go before the Kickstarter closes, you can consider looking at the games Kickstarter game for further information.
Blubber Busters is a 2D action platformer with an emphasis on frantic combat. Space whales have problems — Lots of problems — from bizarre bacteria to pesky parasites and everything in between, and they need your help! We’re big fans of 90s-era combat platformers, and are especially inspired by games like Mega Man X, Metal Slug and the Metroid series! Blubber Busters is definitely snuggled up in that same blanket and we aim to make something that stands toe-to-toe with the greats. Whales come to you for help, and who are you to turn them down? Pick your patient and get out there! Each afflicted whale effectively works as a single stage with its own set of problems and objectives you need to solve to help get it happy and healthy again. A whale with a stomach ache may have you trekking down into the stomach to clear out unwanted debris while dodging digestive acids, or a parasite infection may have you wiping out swaths of critters before taking on their queen!
Swap between crew members to tackle each situation. Switch to the more agile Eva to climb a wall, burn through barriers with Rudy’s flamethrower or kick-start machinery with some juice from Emmett’s defibrillators! Or just cycle between all of them to give infections a thrashing. There’s no I in team, so get to know the whole crew!
