Hello Pixel Joint!
I'm the creator of The Pocalypse webcomic ( http://www.thepocalypse.com - http://www.thepocalypse.com - also pixel art! :D) and I want to let you all know about my dev studio's new project: The Pocalypse Defense 2! (TPD2)
TPD2 will be an open-world RPG that will use the Tower Defense genre as inspiration for its battle system. It will be available on Windows/Mac/Linux platforms and on the iPad. It'll be mostly pixel art, like the webcomic that it's based on.
Check out our first preview trailer! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSbrEH8fzC8 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSbrEH8fzC8
We're going to need support from fans and the public (who I hope to make fans out of!) to make the game happen the way we want it to happen. So, we started an Indiegogo campaign to raise funding:
http://www.indiegogo.com/thepocalypsedefense2 - http://www.indiegogo.com/thepocalypsedefense2
We've raised almost 40% of our goal and we still have about 2 weeks to go! Through the campaign, we also want to give fans a chance to be part of the development process, so we're offering funding perks that will allow funders to play betas and participate in game discussion. We're also giving everyone a chance to in the game as an NPC sprite, a playable Hero, and/or even a boss character!
Thanks for checking out our work and I'd love to hear some feedback from pixel artists who are far more skilled and experienced than I am :D Who knows, we may need some extra pixel art help during development!
