Coming Soon: Halcyon

A sci-fi metroidvania adventure for the NES

Halcyon is an in-development NES game that is a mash-up of concepts from Blaster Master, Metroid, and Super Metroid.

You have crash-landed on planet Halcyon, and found that the planet is teeming with antagonistic creatures, and remains of an ancient civilization. Can you survive long enough to discover the secrets and history of this stark alien world?

Featuring numerous weapons and power-ups in a non-linear metroidvanis-style world, Halcyon attempts to bring best elements of exploration and challenge back to the original platform that started the metroidvania genre: the Nintendo Entertainment System.

Featuring graphics from Frankengraphics, our goal is a release in late 2020. To learn more about Halcyon development, follow me on Twitter, or follow my development blog. If you would like to play with Halcyon now, early development builds are available to any Patreon supporters.
