Yo, gamers! Hilltop Studios, partnering with Versus Evil, dropped a fresh Dev Diary about their upcoming title, Lil’ Guardsman. If you’re curious about the blend of medieval and modern in a narrative puzzle adventure, you gotta peep this.
Hilltop Studios Spills the Tea on Eccentric Characters
In this Dev Diary, meet the devs themselves: Artiom Komarov, Scott Christian, and Matt Bernard. They talk about the quirky lineup you’ll encounter in the game, like the awkwardly named Buttface and the shady Magnus the Magnificent. Spoiler alert: Magnus is just two goblins in a wizard robe, no cap.
The Sprawl: Where Neon Meets Medieval
The setting for Lil’ Guardsman is the Sprawl, a kingdom that’s not your run-of-the-mill fantasy land. The devs aimed for a 70-30 split between medieval fantasy and unexpected elements, like 1980s tech and neon signs. But don’t get it twisted, the game ain’t all jokes and gags. War is brewing in the later levels, adding gravity to your in-game decisions.
Dive into Colorful Locales
Your journey will take you to vibrant spots like the Twisted Sisters tavern and Garby’s Emporium of Wonders. Don’t miss Malcolm the Jester’s office while you’re at it.
Gameplay Mechanics and Platform Availability
Slated to drop on PC, Switch, PlayStation, and Xbox Series consoles later this year, Lil’ Guardsman pulls inspo from point-and-click classics and Papers, Please mechanics. You’ll be stepping into the tiny shoes of Lil, a young girl holding down the fort—literally. She’s covering for her dad, the head castle guardsman.
Decisions, Decisions: Guarding the Castle Ain’t Easy
The gameplay revolves around interrogating peeps who wanna get inside the kingdom. You gotta use your skills to figure out their real motives. And let’s be real, you don’t wanna mess up. One wrong move and you could expose the kingdom to some sketchy characters.
