Of any game in Nintendo’s lineup, arguably the most artistically different is your Paper Mario series. Built from the ground up with paper craft and kitschiness in mind, what from the game feels like it was made within a arts and crafts project. Bearing this in mind, it is astonishing how far Indiegogo-backed game Bug Fables can nail that style. And as the game nears its funding target, we get a deeper glimpse into gameplay along with the crafting mechanics.
What is Bug Fables? It’s (thus far) lightly-publicized Indiegogo job by Panamanian Cartoon programmer Moonsprout Games. With a mild bottom line of20,000, Bug Fables has cleared nearly 70% of its funding goal. The game is a Adventure Turn-based RPG following three bugs (Bee, Beetle, and Moth) within their quest for immortality at Bugaria.
Although it could seem like Paper Mario, it does have the spare touch of modern gambling — including action commands along with a crafting-like cooking method. That system is the subject of the latest update, which reveals a video crafting bombs and subsequently utilizing them later in combat:
Because you can see, from picture style to gameplay to audio style, this game seems emulated directly from the world of Paper Mario.
Bug Fables — assuming it meets its fundraising goals — will launch only for PC in June 2019.
