I'm making a beautiful pixel art game called "Player Back To Earth". The concept is, you have to build a huge tower to get back to Earth, and get through 5 atmospheres of different difficulty. Every atmosphere you pass, a boss will spawn. Its difficulty will depend on the atmosphere. There are going to be hundreds of different weapons, armors, decorations and enemies. Once you get back to Earth, you unlock Hero Mode. Then you can play through the game with enemies and bosses 2 times as hard, but with better weapon and armor drops! :)

Grainwars is developed by a youtuber Heartbeast. I like his videos about creating games in Game Maker and Game Maker Studio 2 because that software is pretty cool and has a lot of features

Do you guys think it's possible for these sorts of games to be made by a single individual? (And by that I mean only one person programs and animates the game sprites)
Skylent Games (6 months ago)
Some of the games on this list had came out and were made by 1 person or just a few with freelancers "Hyper Light Drifter". Check out "Game Maker" it is a program used to make games easily without programming knowledge even.

What is the mech one at 8:22 ?
Hey everyone (and Skylet). If you are all interested in a new 16bit styled Pixel Art retro platformer please check out Mythic Draconis. I just put up the pre-alpha trailer for it on my channel. We are very proud of our work so far and hope you like what you see. Again it is still only a pre-alpha version at the moment with limited resources and trial licensing on the program used to make it, so you can expect some cool awesomeness and a lot more going into the final release of the game :) I am trying to get some attention to the game at the moment and trying to gather an audience to lead up to launching a small crowdfunding campaign to be able to complete it. Hopefully with the help of the gaming community, this summer we could be slaying dragons, demons, the dead, and more, in pixel art fashion with Mythic Draconis. Not adding links so as not to get marked as spam. You can find it by clicking me and viola, its right there ;) I literally had no other way to go about this so shameless promotion was the option as it is hard to get noticed without funds for advertising. Hence I am going ahead and reaching out to you all through YouTube videos so again I hope you all like what you see.

nice video
BeastalRage (1 year ago)
Personally I would put Duelyst on a Nr 3 spot or higher, since that game has the best tactical gameplay I've ever seen, every single spell, monster, faction and hero is Unique not only in their looks but in abilities too, and that lets us do a highly strategic games that are super fun because of that. Anyways a good top 10.

The Mechanic4games (1 year ago)
Im super hyped for death's gambit
The Mechanic4games (1 year ago)
though one problem I have with death's gambit right now is it seems there are two different pixel artists with different art styles that slightly contrast eachother, some of the pixel art has a lot of detail and shading while other pixel art is a little bland and I think that is going to slightly ruin the whole ambiance in the game

Holy hell thank you so much for this vid! I fell head over heels in love with Hyper Light, and Souls are probably my top games of all time. You listed at least 4-6 games here that made my toes curl with excitement, instantly went on steam to buy/wishlist them. Thanks again, would have never known about them if it wasn't for you.

what was the game where the mech was walking out of the door in the beginning of the intro
Call Me Ahri (1 year ago)
Notice how a lot of the games are 'souls-like'. The combat system of dark souls is perfect and im glad there are more and more games trying to base their combat off of that.

what about Riot Civil Unrest?
Cristóbal Alarcón (1 year ago)
that game has extended its realease date multiple times. The less people know about this game until its release...
r0w3ntje (1 year ago)
now you know, summer 2016 :P
Skylent Games (1 year ago)
aye that is the game that inspired me to make this list. Didn't know when it would release.
featheon (1 year ago)
"Ok, take Dark Souls and Shadow of Colossus and make 'em 2D!" No, you cad! Take Symphony of the Night--the progenitor of both those game--and try to capture the same spirit to entice fans that don't know their history. Pay attention.
Skylent Games (1 year ago)
Well, the creator of the game I was talking about literally stated Dark Souls and Shadow of the Colossus as inspiration. Also, nothing wrong with calling a game Soulsian even if there is historically other games that have similar features because Dark Souls is the defining game of the combined aesthetic and mechanics as elucidated by this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iaJb5juMiNY
