Soooo I did end up buying Freedom Planet…

… and damn. Hot damn.

It might be a little early for me to try and formulate a more fleshed out and concrete opinion and stuff. But all I’ll say is this: if you have any sort of nostalgia for 90’s platformers and/or the Genesis/Mega Drive Sonic games, buy this. Seriously, don’t hesitate, just buy Freedom Planet. It’s basically a big ball of colorful 90’s 16-bit-era platforming goodness. Seriously, it’s just fantastic. A wonderful graphical style and aesthetic, an enjoyable story, great gameplay and levels, a lovely soundtrack… yeah, I can’t praise this game enough.

If there’s one thing I’d have to criticize, it’s the difficulty. Which is to be expected from this kind of game, but it can get a bit brutal at points. Although luckily it’s mostly “brutal but fair” with only a few little bits here and there I’d say were a bit unfair. But so far it’s not so difficult I want to throw my controller on the floor and ragequit in disgust. Or, well, at least, everything else makes up for it.

So yeah! Silky approves of this game. Highly. Go. Buy it. Now.

Soooo after a few months of just playing my first mixtape on loop (the tracklist for that one being here for those curious), I’ve finally compiled a new playlist for a second volume! Sooo for all negative-six of you who’d be interested, here is the tracklist:

—- SIDE A: —-

FM Attack — “Magic (feat. Kristine)”
Tesla Boy — “Spirit of the Night”
Lazerhawk — “Pedal to the Metal”
RTRY — “Master Control”
Perturbator — “Deviance (feat. Arcade High)”
Lorn — “My Drum Machine”

—- SIDE B: —-

NIKY NINE — “ROAD”
Garth Knight — “On the Run”
Rico Zerone — “Cosmic Stream”
Tesla Boy — “Fantasy”
Garth Knight — “Regardez Moi”
Kristine — “Modern Love (Power Glove Remix)”
Night Runner — “The Sentinels”

This one is a bit shorter than the last since I tried to fit it all on a 60 minute tape this time instead of a 90 minute one. Just because I have too many 60 minute tapes and thought I’d use them.

… also I did kinda cheat since Lorn isn’t an artist who does NeoRetro/Synthwave music normally. But just listen to "My Drum Machine" and try to somehow tell me that doesn’t sound uber-80’s. I dare you.

After a successful Kickstarter and three years of hard work and love, our high-speed platform game Freedom Planet is now available on Steam! We’ve mixed together dozens of the best gameplay elements of 90s-style Japanese platformers such as Sonic’s speed, Mega Man’s combat prowess and Gunstar Heroes’ insane boss fights. We’d love it if you could help us battle the nefarious Lord Brevon and his army of shade troopers!

Pain Elemental is like that guy who shows up at a party and brings his group of friends uninvited that woosh about in the air and scream. You know the one I’m talking about!
