We have had some standout hand drawn games grace our PS4, Stick it to The Man, Zombie Vikings and Drawn to Death being some of our favourites. Here are two upcoming hand drawn games that caught our attention over the last few days.
First off we have Buck, a story-driven 2D adventure. Wave Interactive’s Buck, has achieved its Kickstarter target, securing the $30,000 in funds needed to release and still has a few hours to go to secure stretch goals. Inspired by Shank and Dust: An Elysian Tale inspired adventure, Buck is an adventure that’s set in a haunted and sombre post-apocalyptic wasteland. You play as Buck, a motorcycle garage mechanic who decides to leave everything he knows behind in order to find the truth behind a girl’s disappearance.
Wave Interactive is a team of three and is the first game they have developed. Looking at the trailer below Buck features a beautiful hand drawn world along with an endearing charm. Definitely one to keep on your radar!
Another game that caught our eye this week is Pengame. Developers Rogue Relay have literally put pen to paper to bring this one to PS4. Pengame will appeal to all who ever scribbled in their notebook as pages come to life to tell an intriguing story. The main character is Stickman, the chosen one and hero of the notebook. He has to fight his way through the notebook of a 16 year old student, who made the mistake of drawing the most evil thing in the universe: The Teacher! She must be defeated, before the corruption consumes everything in the book. Dozens of enemy types are to be taken down by Stickman’s wide arsenal and melee weapons, special powers, acrobatic skills and time manipulating abilities.
Lets’ hope the Hungarian team behind Pengame bring the game to PS4 soon.
