French developer Pepite Studios SAS has announced that their first game Peppy’s Adventure will be launched for Windows, Mac and Linux this summer. The game will be initially available on Steam.
Peppy’s Adventure is a 1-screen, top-down, action-puzzle game controlled with directional inputs only. You play as Peppy, a bun-shaped bunny, on his journey to rescue the village younglings from the clutches of the Hooded Fox. As you pursue his airship from world to world, you will have to solve your way through short challenging levels as fast as possible facing an army of reckless foxes.
Peppy is controlled in a grid-based pattern where precise inputs and fast thinking are required to progress further. With a fast-paced die-and-retry mechanics, the game incentivizes players to experiment different ways to solve levels by manipulating the foxes and taking risks in order to optimize their records.
Peppy’s Adventure is mixing retro gameplay and 16-bits inspired soundtrack with original sharp sprite-based graphics and a colorful palette. It features simple 2D animated elements and multi-themed tilesets reminiscent of retro console games.
The initial game release will feature 6 worlds and 126 levels. New worlds will be released as free updates on a regular basis until completion of the storyline.
