The folks over at Naps Team, makers of games such as Maria the Witch [$3.99] and Legendary Knight Run [Free] on mobile and who are hopefully still porting their PlayStation brawler Gekido to iOS someday, sent word of their new upcoming game and although it's short on details it's looking really great so far. The game is called Baldo and all we know about it is it'll be "a real action adventure" that's "full of mysteries" and contains "real dungeons" and many "funny/weird characters to interact with." The art style in Baldo is also really cool, with almost photo-realistic backgrounds for the decidedly cartoon-like characters and enemies to romp around in. Check out a bunch of screens.

My guess is that Baldo is an action adventure game in a similar vein to the Legend of Zelda series, where you'll cruise around an open world map and fight enemies in real-time while also seeking out various dungeons that are filled with environmental puzzles and boss battles. But hey, that's just a guess and I could be totally off. One thing I am sure of though is that I'd love some more details about Baldo, and while those are scarce currently the Baldo Facebook page appears to be the best source for updates, so we'll keep our eye on this one as development continues.

    Love the blatant Monkey Island reference in the fourth shot.

    Game itself reminds me a bit of Silver, another action adventure game with fixed angle pre-rendered backgrounds and 3d cartoon characters.

      I absolutely loved silver when it came out! Was one of the last amazing games that infogrames did that held my attention, specially that radial wheel the came had!!! I've been dying to replay that again, fingers crossed for a mobile port one day!

      Either way, Baldo will be in an instabuy for me!

    That art style, it's so Ghibli-esque. I'm definitely looking forward to this one.

    This game will work better on android than iOS because android device support full gles 3.2 + vulkan

  • Alex

    So the fourth screenshot of the nighttime mountain top with the old man and old arch is clearly a Secret of Monkey Island thing

    Very excited for this to come out. Hopefully the democrats don't obstruct this game like they do everything ReeeeeeeeeeeeEeeee
