The Other Brothers a Kickstarter Game Looking to Make a Linux Debut

3D Attack will use Unity 4 for their upcoming

adventure game

The Other Brothers is an episodic family adventure game of running, jumping, collecting and racing against the clock, all in retro pixel glory. That’s right… retro pixel glory! You know what we are talking about. Remember those glorious days of the Commodore 64, Amiga 500, NES/SNES etc., and the hours, upon hours, of side scrolling pixelated fun?
We are bringing it back with, The Other Brothers! Not only are we going to bring it back, but enhance it.

Technology today allows 3D Attack the ability to do things they couldn’t do in the past, so why not incorporate some “fresh/modern” ideas. The Other Brothers plays homage to the golden era of gaming, and yet stands on it’s own feet due to strong visuals and game play. Making a retro game using Pixel Art is a style choice. It’s an art form. It’s an experience we were captured with in our young years and want to bring it all back to you and your family.

We invite you to join Joe and Jim, on their wild and crazy adventure, as they horizontally scroll junkyards, cities, streets, allies and sewers. As they, collect pigeons, avoid obstacles, take on bad guys and fight the big bosses all in an effort to rescue our damsel in distress, Tavy! Not only do we want you to enjoy The Other Brothers, we want you to be part of it.

Why Kickstarter?

Game development is an exciting, fun and enjoyable process, but it’s also an expensive one. To make The Other Brothers something truly special, we need you.

Being indie developers allows the development the freedom to design a unique game without publishers intervening, but also means that we (3D Atthack) are doing this entirely out of our own pockets with the money we pay the bills and feed our kids with. Things like localization, hardware for testing and audio production all require money and there’s only so far we can get with our MacGyver hats on.
