Flying Hamster morphs into Monster Boy

Here's some fun news from one of my Kickstarter backed projects. What was going to be Flying Hamster II (which then got picked up by a publisher and cancelled) will become Monster Boy, riffing on the Monster World (Wonder Boy) games with input from the Sega series' legendary Ryuichi Nishizawa and music from Michiru Yamane.

Since the hamster game was broadly a jolly retro platformer with gorgeous bright graphics, it was well on the way to imitating the Monster World games, and this really looks like the business, with modern visuals in a superbright style. The game is slated for PC first with PS4 and other console formats to follow, hopefully they'll stick to their original plan for a Vita version.

UPDATE: FDG say they will discuss the Vita with Sony!
