Hazelnut Bastille is a gorgeous-looking 16-bit-style RPG

Here’s a really interesting Kickstarter project. Hazelnut Bastille is a Zelda-style RPG from Aloft Studios, and the graphics are absolutely stunning. It’s a beautiful homage to the 16-bit era – and even better, there’s a 2-3 hour demo available that’s a standalone adventure separate from the main game, so you can try it for yourself.

The game itself is still a long way off – the developers estimate it will be released at the end of 2020. But the Kickstarter project is going well so far, having raised nearly $50,000 of its $65,000 goal with 29 days to go. It’s being released on PC, Mac and Linux, but there may be a Switch version in the works if they reach their $110,000 stretch goal. As ever, there’s a risk involved in backing a Kickstarter project, but this one certainly looks very promising. Check out the campaign here.
