Usually we would have been on this straight away, but with the merger and E3 clouding our sights, only now have we had time to share this… better late than never though, right?
For those who are not in the know, Lobodestroyo is a game that was funded on Kickstarter around two years ago. The game takes a Mexican stylised approach on bringing back the 3D Collect-a-thon games we all know and love from the Nintendo 64 and Gamecube era, think Banjo-Kazooie, Donkey Kong 64, and Super Mario Galaxy. They have also taken inspiration from other games such as the boss battles from Mega-Man. Travel forwards two years later, and you would’ve found that the team went radio silent. Did this mean the end of Lobodestroyo as we know it?
I think not! The guys at Lefthanded Games recently published a new backer update, that has been unlocked for the world to see, to explain that they are very much still alive and kicking. They’ve apologised for the lack of updates, saying how there has been a phase of lowered motivations and other commitments getting in the way of development. Though times have been tough, Jamie, the Creative Director on the project is confident that a newly reenergized attitude and dedication will keep development going strong. New additions to the team including Project Manager Scott Malo will help keep the team’s efforts on track and moving forward.
Lefthanded Games has recently published a new website that acts as a hub for updates, as well as other content such as streams, podcasts, and even some editorials by yours truly. They have already made a new character reveal on the website! But enough from me, check out the update in its entirety to find out just what has been been said regarding Lobo’s resurgence!
I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!
