Worth Checking Out - Legend of Iya

While games like Duke Nukem Forever have shown that an eternal development cycle can be a disaster, Legend of Iya is an indie project that seems to prove the complete opposite. After over a decade of development Andrew Bado has decide that the time has come to finish his dream project. With a decade of industry experience, Bado has provided his beautiful pixel art skills to the metroidvania inspired indie platformer, evolving the project from it's ZX Spectrum roots to what it is today. The game is absolutely gorgeous, showcasing a wide assortment of enemy and environmental design that flow with passion.

It's not unheard of for an indie game to be stuck in a long development cycle, by the amount of time and work put into Legend of Iya is absolutely amazing. Andrew Bado seems to be extraordinarily passionate about this project and providing the help he deserves will be sure to provide an awesome experience for gamers. The game may slap you with nostalgia, but after getting my hands on the demo Legend of Iya is a title that stands on it's own, using inspiration from previous titles without succumbing to being too similar. 

To help Andrew Bado finish his project, you can donate to his Kickstarter here and also download the demo which was just released for you to try. You can also vote for the game on Steam Greenlight to help with a wider release.
