In Adventures of Pip, you start life as a single pixel and traverse a world where low and high-bit characters run the gamut between old and new school graphics - those with higher resolutions rule while those with lower resolutions are destined to serve. When an ‘evil’ queen levels the playing field by reducing everybody to a single pixel, it’s up to an unlikely hero - Pip - to save the kingdom. Pip has the unique ability to absorb the pixels of his fallen enemies and gains resolution through great resolve. As Pip evolves in the game, the visuals, gameplay and music (by Jake "virt" Kaufman) evolve along with him.
Tic Toc Studios has launched a kickstarter campaign looking for $40,000 to complete development of Adventures of Pip. The initial funding will allow the studio to develop AoP for PC/Mac (Steam) and Wii U with Xbox One and PSN as stretch goals.
Adventures of Pip is the story of Pip, a single pixel with the power to absorb the pixels of fallen enemies and evolve into a powerful hero!
Follow Pip as he stomps, slashes, and dashes towards the Dark Queen on his quest to recover the kingdom’s stolen pixels. Enjoy classic side-scrolling gameplay and a unique system of leveling and abilities.
When the evil queen of a neighboring land swoops in and steals the kingdom’s most precious resource–its pixels–all the villagers, guards, and even nobles are reduced to single-pixel life forms, the lowest rung on the social ladder. With their power sapped and their hopes vanquished, it’s up to one unlikely little hero to save the day. That hero is Pip!
Pip must journey through regions far and wide to reach the Dark Queen’s stronghold. Through forests, swamps, caves–Pip has to fight through hordes of her demonic army to get closer to the Queen herself! Along the way, he gains experience from the pixels of his fallen enemies, growing into the hero his kingdom needs in the battle against the Dark Queen.
But what he finds when he finally meets her face-to-face might not be what he was bargaining for…
Explore lush green forests, marshy swamps, and vast, echoing caves on your quest to track down the Dark Queen. Overcome the many enemies and obstacles she has thrown in your path, and learn and grow by collecting pixels (like experience points) from the enemies you have slain. The more pixels you acquire, the more you level up and evolve into a higher-resolution Pip. Evolving grants you some sweet new abilities too–wielding weapons, dash, double jump, powerful combo attacks, and more!
Each environment features a unique set of enemies to take down and new obstacles which can only be overcome with your evolved skills!
