Of any game in Nintendo’s lineup, arguably the very artistically different is your Paper Mario series. Built from the ground up with paper craft and kitschiness in mind, everything from the game feels as if it was created in a arts and crafts project. With this in mind, it’s impressive how far Indiegogo-backed game Bug Fables will pinpoint that style. And since the game nears its funding goal, we now get a deeper glimpse into gameplay and the crafting mechanics.
What is Bug Fables? It’s (so far) lightly-publicized Indiegogo project by Panamanian Cartoon programmer Moonsprout Games. With a light bottom line of $20,000, Bug Fables has cleared nearly 70 percent of its funding goal. The game is an Adventure Turn-based RPG subsequent three bugs (Bee, Beetle, and Moth) within their quest for immortality at Bugaria.
Although it might seem like Paper Mario, it will have the spare touch of contemporary gambling — including action commands and a crafting-like cooking system. This system is the subject of the latest update, which reveals a movie crafting bombs and subsequently utilizing them afterwards in battle:
As you can see, from picture design to gameplay to audio style, this game feels emulated directly out of the world of Paper Mario.
Bug Fables — supposing it matches its fundraising targets — will start exclusively for PC in June 2019.
