Hi everyone, I know I’ve been really quiet lately but I had a good reason.

Me and my associate Omar cofounded our very own game studio Lizardcube  , fulfilling a life-long dream of making a remake of Wonder Boy III: The Dragon’s Trap.

— more info here —

We’ve been hard at work for more than a year and half now and we finally unveiled the reveal trailer yesterday. We got an amazing response from the community, truly felt like a heartwarming welcome for the project.

I personally couldn’t be happier, I handle all the art by myself ( including this trailer ) and people seems to really appreciate the work I did on it. I’m glad that handdrawn art and animation can get such a good response, this is something I really like to see in a videogame.

You know, if only there was extra content to this game. I had no idea the remake was made by a deviantart user.
This is just outstanding, especially seeing the run at AGDQ 2018.
Great job on the art style AND the game!

I'm playing this on the Switch right now. You guys did an amazing job remaking this game!
Your handdrawn style really breathes a lot more live into the game and I hope other developers will take note of that.
I also like the concept art that you can unlock in the in-game gallery.

Man this is a fantastic looking game! I remember that little fox game demo you had. My friend and I used to go through those cycles and geek out about your animation and drawings. Fun stuff, great work and congratulations on the project so far.
