In the time-honored tradition or Melty Blood, Marvel vs Capcom, comes Earth Romancer, a tournament-grade platform brawler in development for Steam and consoles from Lunar Hare Studios, led by competitive gamer Blank Mauser. Earth Romance has launched a Fig funding campaign, the funds will be used to finalize development in order to achieve a Q1 2019 release window.
“There have been many great platform brawlers, and I have played many of them, some, even competitively. I have always thought, ‘wouldn’t it be great if Smash Bros had this’ or ‘how awesome would it be if Marvel vs Capcom had that’, but instead of waiting for someone to create a truly all-encompassing platform fighting game, I decided to do it myself. Earth Romancer stands on the shoulders of giants in this genre, liberally taking what makes them great, and combining those features into a complete action-packed platforming fighting experience sprinkled with new mechanics I have always wanted.” – Blank Mauser, CEO, Lunar Hare Studios.
Earth Romancer molds together familiar game mechanics such as flexible combo chaining of traditional fighters, and the intuitive control scheme and movement of Smash Brothers, with new and inventive mechanics. Earth Romancer offers a vibrant Nintendo-esque aesthetic and an original soundtrack inspired by old-school platformers and classic fantasy RPGs. New features include:
- Dash or jump through projectiles for intense bullet-hell style fighting.
- Spawn stage objects while fighting and manipulate the environment to your advantage
- Unique character-specific air actions.
- Two modes of play! Choose Redshift or Blueshift modes or play a combination of both and switch mid-combat.
Earth Romancer is set in a fictional universe called Xamsara, which is inhabited by Arcanum, mystical creatures of otherworldly power that are attracted to the emotions and dreams of people. Throughout Earth Romancer you will also get to know the various races that populate Xamsara and their symbiotic relationship with the Arcanum. It’s an intricate, world-building experience filled with intrigue, drama, and beauty.
“From hyperspace roads to wandering terraformers, Earth Romancer will merge sci-fi and fantasy concepts to create an inspiring canvas for years to come. Help us paint a world that ignites the imagination of people all over, and share in our game’s financial success” – Mauser.
