    From the mind of 8-year old game designer Benjamin Howard (my son!) comes our indie team's first Unity title:

    -=[ Sir Hoppity: Challenge of the Dragon ]=-

    With only your magic carrot sword to protect you, play as Sir Hoppity through the dark forest, a rolling sand desert, and the volcano dragon’s lair. Collect treasure and buy upgrade items to defeat jumping spiders, angry wasps, sidewinder snakes, and more!

    • Exciting 2.5D platformer with the spirit of classic adventure games
    • Awesome treasures include keys, chests, potions, upgraded armor, and more!
    • Three giant levels filled with enemies, traps, and challenges: dark forest, sun scorched desert, and lava volcano
    • Game design and all character art created by 8-year old Benjamin Howard!

    From the screenshots, you can probably see that my son is a big Zelda fan, with influence from the excellent Swordigo title as well. We are targeting iOS, Android, Win8, and Windows Phone.

    We wanted to thank the fantastic Unity asset pack creators, whose creations were a HUGE HELP in making this project. We are a small indie studio (1 programmer!) so having these assets is critical to our success.

    Here are the assets we used:

    o Toon pack from The Hedgehog Team
    o 2D Jump'n'Run Framework by BySamb
    o Fx Arcade Particles from Photon Blasting Service
    o Last hope asset pack from Luciano junior
    o Mobile Sky System by The3DAction, $15.00
    o Nobiax free rocks from moctezumagames
    o Cartoon Platformer 2 from DEXSOFT-Games
    o Sky5X One by outburners
    o Toon Ruins Pack by Cat on the Roof
    o AudioDraft Orchestral Music Pack


    THANK YOU ALL!

    The game looks funny and enjoyable to play too!

    Thanks, Tim! We have had an absolute BLAST making this first title in Unity, and can't thank the community enough for their support!

    The beta is up this week at http://www.codedvelocity.com, so you can try out the game!

Our small indie team is very excited to have passed this milestone for our first release title, and look forward to having Sir Hoppity available to our fans January 1st, 2014!
