Prepare to feel the 8 bits action in a first person view

8Bit Killer

The plot: It's the year 2488. Mankind already walks on the edge of self-extinction after a great war, but now a new army launched an attack to the few cities that are still on, following the plan of a mysterious creature known as the Master Brain. 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.

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 3D view. 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.

Personal note: I started this game as a little 3D experiment, but it was fun enough to make a full game out of it. It had a good press diffusion back in the young days of the "indie scene", when everything were small sized games. My pixel skull is a detail extracted from a wall in this game.
