Indie games publisher Digital Smash have revealed a partnership with Hiker Games which will see action-platform title ToyQuest: The Lost and Found to the Xbox One sometime this summer.
In ToyQuest: The Lost and Found, you play as Brand, an action figure who is tasked with saving his owner Felix from impending doom. Armed only with standard issue household items you must solve the many mysteries of the house before nightmares take over forever!
The Xbox One version of the game will be developed by Digital Smash, with Hiker Games taking charge of it’s PC counterpart. This will be the first for Digital Smash – the company’s President, David Klein said: “ToyQuest takes some of the most recognizable elements from our childhood and uses them in a colorful and unique way. It’s a charming game and one that’s very much suited to the living room to be enjoyed by all types of players.”
Nguyen Vu Phuong, the Team Lead of Hiker Games said: “We are super excited to be partnering with Digital Smash. Bringing ToyQuest to additional platforms that will definite the next generation of children growing up with toys and video games. We are also especially proud that we will be working with Digital Smash- their commitment to the project and enthusiasm, proves that console versions of ToyQuest are in good hands.”
ToyQuest: The Lost and Found will boast more than 300 enemy toys, such as a toy tank, plastic army soldiers and a paper crane. There are also hundreds of item upgrades, weapons, procedurally-generated levels and seven nasty fucker boss stages.
Consider this a classic platform title, with a base defence twist thrown in as while you’re out around the house attacking enemies, the bedroom – to be protected at all costs – is unsupervised, and unprotected! It’s up to you to come up with the defenses it needs to keep out any attackers who may try to capitalize on your absence.
“ToyQuest: The Lost and Found takes the scary dreams we all had to deal with as kids and turns them into a fluid, imaginative platformer with roguelike elements,” says Phuong Vu, founder of Hiker Games. “It plays like many of the games we enjoyed growing up, but with beautiful graphics and sound.”
