Landflix: here’s the Netflix’s parody game coming to Switch
ROMA, Italy – Jan. 15, 2018 – — Game of Thrones or Monkey Island? Stranger Things or Ghosts ‘n goblins? If you can’t decide whether you want to play videogames or binge watch, why not mix the best of both worlds? The guys from Fantastico Studio could have the answer to your problems: Landflix Odyssey, A spoof videogame taking place inside Netflix’s most popular shows. The core of the game is that of a classic 2D Platformer with pixel art graphics. Impersonating Larry, a beer loving average guy who spends his days binge-watching, the player gets thrown inside the TV, where Landflix’s evil CEO is secretly planning to conquer the world. Who will take up the role of the hero stopping this devious villain? The player, of course, diving in this adventure through TV shows, reliving their most iconic events: we start in Peculiar Stuff (Stranger Things), with its demogorgons and the upside down, then we get to Elder Thrones (Game of Thrones), Blindevil (Daredevil), Going Mad (Breaking Bad) and finally The Standing Zombies (The Walking Dead). In each world/show the player will be dressed up according to the show’s setting and will have always new power, full of humour and a modern looking, yet with a retro feel to it, pixel art.
The creators of Landflix Odyssey are the guys from Fantastico Studio, four roman video games, beer and obviously TV shows lovers. The development of the game started in September 2017 thanks to a small funding received by a fellow roman game development company, and to the guys in the team putting together their own money for their project. The game’s release is expected for as early as next September on PC and consoles (Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch). But don’t miss the next appointment with Landflix in February, as the guys from Fantastico Studio are launching a Kickstarter campaign to gather the funds necessary to cover part of the costs of the development and reward the backers with many interesting gifts.
