Description

2D story-driven action-platformer (with upgrades, secret passages, and even an annoying fairy-like companion). Pankapu is a colorful game in which you can transform freely from Warrior to Archer or Mage. Switch wisely between your three Aegis and master them to fulfill your destiny and defeat Gangreyn, the Prince of Nightmares.

History

Told in the manner of a fable read to a child, the game has two levels of reading: the story of Pankapu, epic and naïve in the dreamlike world of Omnia, and the one about Djaha’rell's life, in the real world, dark and tragic.

Features

  • Classic 90’s action-platformer in 2D told like a tale
  • Two parallel stories between Dreams and Reality
  • 3 Aegis, changing gameplay style, switchable in real time
  • Infuse your weapons with the power of Dream
  • Re-explore stages to find secrets and treasures
  • Soundtrack composed by Ganaé and Hiroki Kikuta

About Too Kind Studio

Boilerplate
Too Kind is a video game studio based in Lille, in France. Developing a transmedia universe for our personal use during several years, we finally decided to become creatively independent and to jump into the indie adventure in January 2014. We want to develop our own vision of video game. We design our games as a scenario supported by a gameplay and not the opposite.
