Description

Cucumber is the greatest aardvark superhero of all time, and when 7 enemies begin to erect mysterious towers, it's up to him to fight his way through each of them and get to the bottom of the larger plan they are a part of. Super Cucumber is a 2D action platformer focused on simple satisfying core movement abilities, and a gradually but steadily increasing difficulty curve as the game progresses from level to level. The game will feature 7 unique towers, each of which containing a series of levels that will have their own unique challenges as the game progresses. With fun engaging gameplay, a classic console platformer look and feel, and fun lighthearted characters, Super Cucumber is a game that just about anyone can enjoy.

History

An extremely simple version of of the game was first conceived by Lorraine Ferraiuolo as a student project. When we began out studio, we knew that one of the early projects we wanted to try our hand at was a 2D platformer. We liked the characters she had conceived for that original game, so we then set about expanding the scope and gameplay of that project into something that would be fit for a full console release. After a few months of work, we have a pretty stable alpha of the game, that showcases all of the core gameplay we want to expand on in the final game, and we will continue to look for avenues to get the game in front of prospective players going forward, and looking for feedback to continue making the game better and more fully realized as we continue development.
