A game inspired by the classic formula!
Bionic Slammer is a metroidvania in development. It is inspired by the best platformer and metroidvania games of the 90s, designed by and for fans of the Metroid and Castlevania series. It is also similar to such games such as Megaman ZX, Shantae And The Pirate's Curse, Monster Boy And The Cursed Kingdom. With its hand-drawn HD graphics, Bionic Slammer is on a par with some of today's most ambitious games, has its own style, and with its numerous challenges will appeal to younger players as well as more demanding gamers. The game comes with its own personality and a unique world built with love.
A balanced gameplay, requiring rigor and precision
Our metroidvania game should be seen as a 2D side-scrolling platformer containing both action and RPG elements, where the player travels through a rich world. We wanted Bionic Slammer to focus on adventure and exploration instead of being a frantic experience: the katana is not drawn as quickly as the usual weapons in games of this genre. The player will have to learn how to manage the latency imposed when the weapon is sheathed. Of course, the more the hero progresses in the game, the more effective he will become!
Save the Body from its own destruction!
Humanity is in peril, and a test subject has been artificially modified in a laboratory. After the failure following the injection of nanobots into its body, you are its last hope as it struggles to survive. You play as V, a modified form of microbial life, that has been injected into and is now trapped within the bionic Body, you have no clue about your role here. You just decide to move forward and visit 8 vital body parts. Travel through 120+ rooms and defeat various enemies in an attempt to restore the balance necessary for the Body to heal. During your journey you will be able to talk to various NPCs and try to give support to the immune system.

The game and the current Team-Icehouse were born from our discussions within a collective of independent creators called The Icehouse, to which we all belong.
