8-Bit Platformer Nogalious Releases Today

Medievil Setting and a Retro Style!

Spanish Indie dev Luegolu3go Studios released their vintage 2D adventure game Nogalious on Steam today. It’s available  for PC at the modest cost of $4.99.

Nogalious pays homage to the 8-bit era of 2D platforming. You’ll battle through 5 different worlds of magical forests and cavernous dungeons, reliving similar titles of the late-eighties. This is the first title of a trilogy that tells the story of Nogalious, his daughter Mariet, and the evil Darama. A press release mentioned “intriguing puzzles” and boasted of “classic final bosses at the end of each stage” Raúl Nogales, CEO at Luegolu3go Studios said of the release:

“Following the success of our physical edition of Nogalious on PC, we’re extremely glad to launch our title on Steam too… This game is a fresh breeze of classic gameplay that will fulfill the expectations of every retro gamer.”

Nogalious was funded via Kickstarter by a die-hard cadre of 246 backers of this retro-style platformer. If the style and presentation aren’t retro enough for you, then incredibly actual physical versions for MSX, Commodore, Amstrad and Spectrum will also be released in the near future! I suppose that goes to show no console is truly ever defunct these days! Check out some giant-water-droplet-dodging gameplay footage of Nogalious below!

Jonathan is HeyPoorPlayer's token British person, so expect him to thoroughly exploit this by quoting Monty Python and saying things like "Pip, pip, toodly-whotsit!" for the delight of American readers. He likes artsy-fartsy games, RPGs and RPG-Hybrids (which means pretty much everything at this point). He used to write for He's also just realised how much fun it is to refer to himself in the third person like he's The Rock or something.
