1C has announced that it will be publishing Pengame, an action platformer with a unique, completely hand drawn aesthetic style. The game, developed by Rogue Replay, will be coming to PC, PS4 and XBOX. The first playable build will be available and presented at Gamescom 2016 in Cologne this August.
The developers of Pengame have literally put pen to paper to bring the basics of gaming back to life through this clean and unique take on both the visual and the story part of this indie release. Appealing to all who ever scribbled in their notebook, now finally seeing the pages come to life and engulfing them within an intriguing story.
The main character is Stickman, the chosen one, hero of the notebook. He has to fight his way through the notebook of a 16 year old student, who made the mistake of drawing the most evil thing in the universe: The Teacher! She must be defeated, before the corruption consumes everything in the book!
Dozens of enemy types are to be taken down by Stickman’s wide arsenal – ranged and melee weapons, special powers, acrobatic skills and time manipulating abilities. Keep the action alive, don’t get hit, and erase everything that stands between you and your goal!
