It’s been a good month for Vilya, Teddy and Fred – the three founders of Pixel Ferrets, currently slaving away at their premiere title. Shortly after publishing their development log at TIGSource, the project was picked up by NeoGAF and from there exploded onto the indie-focused news sites!
Here’s some quotes and link-love;
Oh, hello there! What’s this? Old-school RPG aesthetics? Zelda-esque gameplay? A deeply complex character customization system with no level caps? Support for four player co-operative play? Say no more. Where do I sign up?
What’s so great about indie game development is how it fills the void left by the big companies. Nintendo may never put out another full-length 2D Zelda game again, so projects like Secrets of Grindea seem that much sweeter.
This one took me by surprise. With a name like “Secrets of Grindea,” I expected to find a generic jRPG with (what else?) endless grinding. Not exactly.
I hate it when sites give games coverage based on their visuals, but this one genuinely looks like fun–the beautiful art is just icing on the cake.
The game is still under heavy development but one thing is certain; there’s a very enthusiastic market waiting for the release. Good job!
