    As a user of Anandtech for many years now (the reviews!), it a great pleasure to show my new game and ask for your vote.

    Although the title suggest it's 8-Bit, it's actually more of mixture of pseudo 8/16 bit style and chiptunes. The main inspiration has been the c64 version of Giana Sisters, mixed with elements from Rainbow Island, New Zealand Story, Rick Dangerous, Wonderboy in Monsterland, Super Mario Bros 3 and many more. The game is filled with little references here and there. The main goal has been to keep it a straight classic scrolling platformer though, with intuitive controls and depth to the gameplay. The kind of game that is almost impossible to find on PC today. And that's why I have always dreamed of making such a game.

    Please help me get this on Steam. Vote for me here:

    First thought: Spam. Where's my iPad?

    Second thought: 16 posts, joined in 2008... Let's vote :)

    Will certainly be trying a demo when it's released.

    He could be one of those bastards who lost his posts in the move.
