Gruniożerca Meta

By archonik, 5 months ago

Gruniożerca /ˈgru.ni.oʊˈʐɛr.t͡sa/ Meta is a port of a simple homebrew NES game. Help Grunio the Guinea Pig collect all the carrots!

The game is WIP, full version expected summer 2018 with a very limited boxed collector's edition! The game will of course, remain free and open-source.

This version tries to improve as much as possible on the NES original by using as many Meta features as deemed suitable.

The Meta version includes animated bitmaps (WIP due to a fixed glitch in bitmap cropping routine of the pre-release Meta library), sound support, colourful graphics and addictive gameplay.

Full version will include a full campaign mode, unlockable levels, achievements and more!

How to play: press A to change between Grunio (black) and Dida (white) and try to collect as many veggies of matching colours as possible. Three mistakes and you're out. The game gets more difficult the better you do.

That's awesome. I's a simple game, but really has a lot going for it; cute art style, cute basic idea. So it's great that more content is coming

Thank you for your patience! A lot of new content is coming to Gruniozerca Meta in a few days!

Including but not limited to:

  • a redesigned, a lot more aesthetically pleasing menu
  • day and evening levels
  • a 10 level campaign
  • a redesigned difficulty curve
  • a new obstacle type
  • a RUN button to help reach those elusive carrots
  • achievement system
  • bug fixes

And yes, we are still planning to do a boxed release of the game! As you can see in the visualisation above, the collector's box will include the game on branded SD, a DVD box with a SD holder and a bonus CD, collectable pin badges, a printed manual and a couple other tiny extras. Comes all packed in a neat looking retro cardboard big box. Of course the game itself is and will remain free. More info soon.

Thanks for playing!
