Zelda inspired local multiplayer game SpiritSphere launching January 24th on Steam

I’m very excited to say that SpiritSphere is getting a full release on Steam on the 24th of January. It will be available for Windows for $7.99/€7,99/₤5,59 with a massive 40% discount in the first week of launch, making it $4.79/€4,79/₤3,35 for one week only. It’s a labour of love that I’ve crafted entirely by myself, with the exception of the soundtrack by Gas1312, on a cold attic. So yeah, a true indie game!

SpiritSphere is a fast paced local multiplayer arcade game with an emphasis on the ‘local’ part. It draws inspiration from timeless classics like Zelda and Windjammers and is a mix of arcade gameplay and retro action-RPG visuals. The 8-bit art style sticks closely to the NES palette and associated restrictions. The game plays similar to air hockey and Pong and is easy to pick-up, but can get pretty crazy at higher level play.

About Eendhoorn Games
Eendhoorn Games is me, Martino Wullems. A few years ago I ran into health concerns that affect my muscles and joints and I couldn’t work on a computer with keyboard and mouse anymore. I didn’t want to give up game development, so nowadays I work on a tablet. Everything from art to programming for this game is done on a Windows Surface Pro 3. Progress might be slow, but that just forces me to keep the scope of my games small.
