Independent video game developer ERMedia and publisher Plug In Digital have announced the launch of their retro-style platformer KING MAN Trilogy on the Steam Store! A game series for lovers of older games, this bundle seems apt to appeal to the sensibilities of the 1980's and early 1990's.
This game is an homage to the older video game platformers that acted as a heavy inspiration for the series. According to the press release:
KING MAN, originally released on 8-bit hardware, dates back to 1988, a favorite among console gamers of the time, due to its silly humor, catchy music, high quality graphics, and clever level design paving the way for future installments.
Additionally, the other games in the series follow suit in their aesthetics and wit. For example, "Super KING MAN, released in 1992 on various 16-bit hardware, brought the titular hero to a new generation of fans, with even sillier humor and over the top voice samples." You can find a short "history" of this series in the YouTube video below, as well as some accompanying screenshots of the three games in the trilogy series.
