Choreo: Legend of Loco is a 2D musical platformer set in a vibrant world with a Lovecraftian foundation.

Inspired by platformers such as Rayman Origins, and the Super Mario series, Mega Sloth's Choreo: Legend of Loco aims to create and engaging, smooth game-play experience with stunning visuals and depth.

Mega Sloth have drawn inspiration from early Disney cartoons, Aztec and Mayan culture and the Cthulu Mythos to create a world that has a colourful and bright surface, with dark and twisted roots.

Centuries ago, five beings rose up to overthrow a tyrannical Elder Being and seal its evil away where it could no longer influence the world around it. As civilisation developed under the Fives rule, the world slowly forgot about the threat of the entity, and the last remnants of its empire have turned to dust. Now, a group of cultists succeed in awakening this darkness from its slumber, drawing it back into the world in a new form. It's gleaming smile belies its dark intentions, and the entity sets out towards the Fives stronghold, determined to reclaim its empire, and make the world that forgot its rule tremble.

Mega Sloth has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Choreo: Legend of Loco, looking for $13,469, and have released a playable demo for interested fans to try out.

Key Features:

  • Dynamic Music System: Choreo incorporates a dynamic music system that develops the main score as you attract more followers. At the start of each level you will only have access to a simple guitar track, giving you a basic ambient score. Each Follower you collect brings more instruments to the track, eventually giving you access to the full theme at around the mid point of the level. The idea is that as the intensity of the level increases, so too will the music, and finding those additional instruments provides extra incentive to explore. We want to evoke the sense that music is an extension of Choreo, that through it, he is in control of his environment, and as such plan to implement a variety of powers and skills directly related to the music of the game. These will range from manipulation of your followers, to altering environmental structures and more!
  • Engaging 2D Platforming : Combining our own experiences as players with engaging genre tropes, we've aimed to create a visually impressive, enjoyable experience that will introduce you to our world, and some of the characters that inhabit it. We've drawn our inspirations from a deep catalogue of games we've enjoyed over the years, particularly looking at more recent titles such as Rayman Origins / Legends, Shovel Knight, and more to see what people enjoy, and what makes a platformer feel fluid and responsive.
  • Vibrant Hand Drawn Art and Characters: Every asset in game has been hand-drawn by our artist, each created lovingly during the development process, and we think the quality speaks for itself. We want to expand the world of Choreo to feature a multitude of environments, enemies and characters, each beautifully detailed and animated to bring the game alive for players.
