Headcannon, one of the studios behind Sonic Mania, has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Vertebreaker, a new, pixel-based side-scroller. The campaign is seeking $275,000 in funding for release on PC in Q3 2021.
Here is an overview of the game, via the Kickstarter campaign:
“Rest in Peace?!” You wish! Vertebreaker is a brand-new and authentic pixel-based side-scroller from Headcannon, the studio that helped bring Sonic Mania to the masses. Starring a stubby-yet-seemingly-unstoppable skeleton who’s thrashing their way to victory, it’s gothic, cartoonish, and unabashedly retro!
Take control of our bony hero in a crusade to crush the undead and look cool while doing it! In Vertebreaker, traversal is key as you slash, bash, and grapple your way through the most wicked 2D adventure yet! “What is ‘traversal'”? It’s slinging, swinging, and launching from floors, walls, and ceilings to propel yourself forward or even upward with serious speed!
Save the day with our pearly-boned mascot, their mysterious golden half-skull, and their sick grappling hook made from the spine of a demon! “What demon”? It doesn’t matter … does it … ?
