Description

Venture Kid is a lovingly crafted 8-bit retro action platformer that goes beyond just pixels and chiptunes. It shines with excellent level design, highly entertaining action levels, responsive controls and a great variety of bosses. Back in the golden age of cartridge games, the development team fell in love with those highly creative games made by small teams who seemed to do wizardry with the limited hardware at that time. Many videogame heroes were born back then and we'd like to rekindle one of the best series ever made. Check out the video to find out more, can you guess which one it is ? Grab your controller, blow the dust of the D-Pad and travel back through time. Venture Kid is here to deliver! Your Mission: The evil Dr. Teklov is about to build a secret weapon, disguised in his huge space fortress. Time is running out but our hero Andy stepped up to defeat him and fight his way through Teklovs minions. Join Andy and prepare yourself for a dangerous journey that demands great skill and determination. Will you succeed ?

History

Venture Kid is a tribute - our love letter to two very important parts of our childhood; The platform genre & The Nintendo Entertainment System. Back in 2012 we decided to develop a game that would showcase our many years of experience with game design (as a hobby), our creativity and knowledge within the platform genre. The working title was Andy Knight. As the game project progressed, so did our desire to make it as authentic as possible in 8- bit glory, like it was being created for the Nintendo - with all its limits, restrictions and rules. And thus Venture Kid was born.
