    Fly Through the Sky as Icarus in an Endless Greek Mythological Adventure!

    Howdy all!

    I'd like to introduce to you my newest game, Icarus: Escape from Crete!

    Scheduled Release: December 11th, 2020

    THE STORY
    Imprisoned in a tower by King Minos of Crete, you must make your escape before it's too late. Your father, Daedalus, has crafted a set of wings for you to begin your adventure!

    As Kid Icarus, you must fly through the great columns of Greece, but be prepared to conquer classic mythological beasts along the way!

    Fly too close to the sun, and risk burning your wings - falling to your demise. Fly too close to the treacherous waters below and you are sure to succumb to the ancient water spirits.

    Stay on your path to defeat Harpies, The Phoenix, Medusa, and more to finally gain freedom from the evil King Minos.

    AT A GLANCE
    • Tons of Boss Encounters
    • Simple 1-Tap Controls
    • A Challenging Endless Adventure
    • Worldwide Leader Boards

    It feels a bit weird that you chose Icarus out of Greek myth characters who didn’t fight any monsters.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    I'll admit that I took a little bit of, I guess you'd call it artistic license when it comes to the mythology. BUT, I will add that Icarus doesn't actually fight any monsters in the game. Icarus is escaping Crete, so the object is to avoid all of the obstacles/creatures in order to escape.

    The creatures do attack Icarus, but the only defense for Icarus is to maneuver around them. There isn't an "attack" button or anything like that. It's a simple game, with just "tapping" to fly as the controls.

    If you take a look at the GIF trailer, you'll see Icarus flying to avoid the attacks. I also just added "lives" to the game, so it's not 1-hit and done like it is in the trailer.

    I'm hoping that the bending of mythology doesn't distract from the fun. I *think* most players can look past it, and just play the game as an action/adventure type game. That's my hope anyways!

    Ah, ok. I though the game is a shm’up since the description says defeat and conquer.

    Definitely not a shoot 'em up.

    I will give some thought to the word "conquer", I don't want to confuse/mislead by using the wrong word.

    Thanks again for the feedback!

    Wanted to let everyone know that I pushed back the release date to December 11th so I can fix some bugs and hopefully add a couple features.

    I'll try to post some pics when/if I add new stuff.

    Sorry for the delay, and thanks for looking!
