Coming out of Steam Greenlight, Toy Odyssey: The Lost and the Found is headed to Xbox One and PC later this month. Listed for $14.99, the game will release September 21, with a PS4 version planned to follow later.
Previously known as Toy Quest when in went into Steam Greenlight, Toy’s Odyssey sees you take on the role of Brand, an action figure who comes to life and fights to protect his owner from the darkness. In doing so, you explore a mysterious house and build up a fort to defend yourself from the Nightmares. Pulling elements from Castlevania and modern roguelikes, “Toy Odyssey: The Lost and Found honors the experience of games from the ‘80s and ‘90s, without the 8-bit graphics and sound,” explains publisher Digital Smash.
“We combined the platformer mechanic with a modern and detailed aesthetic that still has a familiar look and feel. All the elements (characters, creatures, environment, objects, and music) come together to create a vivid picture reminiscent of the games many of us grew up playing.”
Featuring a variety of weapons, over 300 enemies, characters to meet, and a procedurally generated house to explore, the game promises “endless replayability.” For those looking for a story however, the game also boasts a fully voiced narrative.
“We are very excited and proud to be affiliated with Digital Smash,” developer Hicker Games’ Team Lead Nguyen Vu Phuong says in a press release. “Their commitment to the project and enthusiasm proves that the console versions of Toy Odyssey are in very good hands. Toy Odyssey takes the scary dreams we all had to deal with as kids and turns them into a fluid, imaginative platformer.”
