'Cyjin: The Cyborg Ninja' Launches Kickstarter Campaign - Trailer

Cyjin: The Cyborg Ninja is a precision platformer that can simply be played using only your mouse.

Players will experience a completely fresh take on the precision platformer genre, where movement, direction and jumping are all controlled by a twitch or a click of the mouse.

Inspired by classic challenging games of the genre such as Super Meat Boy and Celeste, Cyjin puts players in control of the titular hero - a cyborg ninja who was bested in a great battle by his evil arch nemesis The Shōgun, and thrown deep into the robot scrapyard in the underbelly of his cyberpunk city.

Cyjin follows the tale of our hero as he attempts to battle his way up through The Metropolis on his journey to stand and face The Shōgun once more - and exact his revenge.

Along the way, players will face perilous levels containing tough enemies, tricky traps and puzzles which will seriously put the reflexes of players to the test. Players will also need to harness every skill they've learned, in order to face unique and gripping boss battles at the end of each area.

Developer Aiya Games has launches a Cyjin Kickstarter campaign, looking to raise a modest $5,006.

Cyjin is midway through development, but Aiya Games are seeking community backing of HK$ 38,850 ($5,00 / £3,500) through Kickstarter in order to fund the rest of the development process until the launch in January 2022. Backers will receive a copy of the game at launch, plus extra goodies for higher tiers, ranging from digital soundtracks, to the option to include a pet in the game, to designing a boss! 

Jiravat Maleenont, founder of Aiya Games said "Cyjin: The Cyborg Ninja is a unique creation driven by our passion and dream to create a simple, unique and challenging game. In order to create a better version of our mouse-based platformer, we need your help to continue improving the game, and deliver the best experience we can to our players. By supporting us on Kickstarter, you can help us bring this unique precision platform game to life."

To celebrate, a brand-new demo is now available on the game's Steam and Itch pages.
