Project Blue is an 8bit action-platformer set in the dystopian city of Neo Hong Kong.
You play as Blue, an orphaned street boy who has been kidnapped by a nefarious multi-national conglomerate as part of a secret weapons project. You must escape your captors, fight your way across Neo Hong Kong, and confront your enemies at their corporate HQ.
The game was created as a team-effort by toggleSwitch (programming, music), FrankenGraphics (graphics & level design) & M-Tee (art & lore).
Project Blue aims to create a dynamic gameplay that is quick to learn, easy to control but difficult to master - and above all, fun to play.
The world of the game is massive in size, with 256 individual area screens and 4 distinctive level themes. There are three difficulty settings as well (normal, hard & brutal), adding a significant amount of extra content, including changes to the level layout itself!
For the Famicom release, we teamed up with the developers for a faithful Japanese version. Aside of making it available for the different hardware, the goal is also to create a thoroughly localized packaging, manual and even implement translated in-game text, to make it a truly fleshed-out release for the console.
The Collector's Edition comes in our signature premium package and offers a great assortment of extras for fans of new Famicom releases. The inner package comes with an alternative artwork and the Edition features clear files, a poster, the original soundtrack on CD and a sticker set as additional goodies.
If you are a collector, you definitely don't want to miss this version, as it offers amazing value for just a slightly higher price.
The Collector's Edition will be limited to 500 pieces.*
