pip2What if you started your game playing journey as a single pixel? As you progress through levels, additional pixels are acquired that give your pixel more of a shape and appearance. He becomes an actual character before you know it. Thanks to Tic Toc Games, we have the lovely Adventures of Pip.

An evil queen has come to Pip’s kingdom and stolen their most important and cherished resource, the pixels. She’s taken them from everyone in the kingdom, leaving them all in the lowest social class: a single pixel (no!). Pip has had enough of the unfairness and decides to go out on his own to vanquish this wretched witch and diminish her wicked ways.

pip3But what Pip doesn’t realize is what exactly he’s getting himself into. Thankfully, with each battle, he accumulates pixels, becoming more of a person again, growing stronger, and turning into a higher resolution character. With these upgrades comes more abilities and combos for pixel fighting fury!

Originally, Adventures of Pip was intended to be a mobile only game but the developers at Tic Toc Games felt this undersold both the content and story the game had to offer; to which they expanded to PC, MAC, and Wii U. It is a side-scrolling action game heavily influenced by classics such as Castlevania and Metroid with low bit graphics.

pip4The team at Tic Toc are aiming for $90K through Kickstarter by June 4th and so far have raised over $3.5K. By donating at least $10, backers can receive the digital copy of the game. The stretch goals will open Adventures of Pip up to additional quests, endless gameplay, and even expanding to other platforms such as Linux and PSN.
