8Bit Killer

a game by locomalito

Started as a little 3D experiment, it grew up to become the first full length game of my actual collection.

8Bit Killer (2008). Mankind walks on the edge of self-extinction after a great nuclear war. Now, a new army is launching an attack to the few cities that are still on, following the master plan of a mysterious creature. A small group of soldiers have formed an alliance to defend the last cities and kill that evil creature. This is the story of their final mission.

8Bit Killer

The game. 8Bit Killer is a first person shooter styled to resemble a Nes game in look and feel. 32x32 pixel textures, Nes color palette and 1 bit sounds make this game look like an 8 bit game in a smooth 3D view, something that never existed in the past. The soundtrack is part of the work composed by the great chip musician RushJet1.

Influences. The settings are inspired by post-apocalyptic films like Mad Max or 2013: Rescue in LA, mangas like Grey or Fist of the North Star, 8 bit games like Contra, Megaman, Bionic Commando, Metroid and raycasting 3D games like Catacomb 3D or it's sequel Wolfenstein 3D.
