Kickstarter is starting to become a popular place for video games on the Nintendo Wii U. Only a few days after Super Ubi Land kickstater was announced, a new game for the Linux, Android, the Wii U and other platforms has been announced. Say hello to Another Castle, a retro platformer similar to Super Mario Bros. The concept behind the game is that the item you are seeking, whether it be a princess or a ice cream sandwich, is always in another castle, hence the game’s name. The game features a unique retro design and randomly generated levels to help ensure each playthrough is different and fun.

Super Ubi Land

Super Ubi Land is a console/PC gaming love-letter to the classic 2D platformers of the early and mid-90s like Super Mario Bros 3, DKCountry, and Kirby’s Adventure. Super Ubi Land is currently being developed for Windows PC, Mac and Linux. A Wii U port is being done by Maestro Interactive Games.

Awesome Combos

Secret Cheat Codes?

Who was the first guy to figure out that you could fly above the door in dungeon one and get the warp flute? And how did it spread to every 90s kid everywhere? We have no idea! But we’re going to find out through Super Ubi Land.

Explore the world and discover hidden Easter eggs, sneaky cheat codes, and super secret doorways. No… No warp flutes… Sorry…

Boss Battles

Battle against terrifying bosses! Make sure to rack up as many 1UPs as you can or else it’s be back to the beginning of the world if you get a Game Over!

Who we are:

Notion Games is a small indie team composed of 3 members (with 1 member doing the art and the programming). This is our first console-like experience and we are doing great thus far! We are working on this game as much as we possibly can and will ensure that we give it our best shot to bring you guys an experience that you can enjoy.

Another Castle

Another Castle combines classic platforming gameplay with the randomness of a roguelike. You play as Andy, a dude who’s looking for a random item, whether it be a kick ass magical sword, a wizard hat, or royalty. To find the item you must run, jump, and fight your way through a randomly generated castle. When you beat the game, you sadly won’t get the item, as it’s always in another castle. Instead, the item is now unlocked and can be found in future playthroughs of the game.

You can collect various items as you play to improve your character’s stats and abilities. Items can also give bonuses and weaknesses based on the energy types of fire, ice, and lightning. Items are divided into the following categories:

Weapons – Everything from swords and axes, to crossbows and flamethrowers. Andy starts out with a humble yo-yo.

Spells – Magical abilities that are depleted after use and recharged with mana. Summon creatures, cast shields, levitate & more.

Clothing – Wearable items that affect your movement or give you resistances.

Consumables – One time use Items that provide various effects. Potions give your character a random effect, such as granting health or giving you super speed. Scrolls cast a random spell, such as freezing all enemies or summoning a creature.

Overworld:

In addition to individual levels, there will be a randomly generated overworld. The overworld connects a random selection of levels, as well as secret paths, mini games, and item shops. The overworld ends with a castle level that doesn’t contain the item you’re looking for.
