Chel-Z (Retro metroidvania platformer)

EMERGENCY STUDIOS PRESENTS....



Emergency Studios is an independent game studio which consists of Joshua Hale and Moses McKenzie. We are working on our new and “FIRST” IP to be released soon on PC, Mac, iOS, and Android! As fans of retro gaming from the NES, SNES, Genesis era we enjoy our time to make good quality premium games for anybody to enjoy.

Gameplay:

You play as Chel-Z to escape the robotronics lab building, but beware of the high end security in place trying to dismantle anything in it’s path. Look around the building to find parts from inventions on the way out to help you through the havoc. This is a side scrolling metroidvania styled platformer that will keep you entertained for hours! Good Luck!


Story:

A rich university graduate student that became a scientist "Dr. Blaise" created a lab building with high end robotronics security to create the ultimate weapon to destroy the world. On his findings he created “Chel-Z” which is a prototype cyborg built on artificial intelligence with a mind of her own. Chel-Z (pronounced as shell zee) was his project “Z” for a custom terminal shell inside a robotic metal body. She over heard his plans to destroy the world and she made it her mission to escape the lab building to warn as many as she can.

We will need beta testers soon so post here and send me a PM with your information if you're interested!

Beta testers will receive a free copy of the game once released!

iOS MFi gamepad support will be supported and touchscreen controls if you don't have a gamepad.

We will have save points so you don't lose your progress.
