Metroidvania Sci-Fi Hack&Slash Action platformer Beyond-Human is a Kickstarter project heavily inspired by the Megaman and Devil May Cry franchises.
The combat may feel similar to people that have enjoyed Devil May Cry and Guacamelee. Combat is all about performing combos that are easy to spam but hard to master. Players will unlock new weapons by defeating bosses and minibosses to improve their arsenal.
Beyond-Human builds upon the classic open-world Metroidvania style exploration inspired by Metroid and the game features 16-bit pixel art with modern effects as well as:
• Metroidvania Style Progression
• Environmental Storytelling
• 6 Locations to Explore
• 6 Boss Battles
• 6 Unlockable Main Weapons
• 12+ Mini-Boss Battles
• 20+ Unlockable Weapon Mods
The release target platforms are Windows, Mac, PS4, and PS Vita and fully support cross-buy program, so if you choose PS4 version you will also get PS VITA download code!
