Coming Soon: Chibi Ninja Shino-kun: Treasure of Demon Tower!
Well, after teasing it for a while I guess it’s time to finally announce my next game. Introducing: Chibi Ninja Shino-kun: Treasure of Demon Tower!
Inspired by Japanese ninja games from the 80s such as Kid Niki: Radical Ninja and Ninja-kun: Adventure of Devil Castle, Chibi Ninja Shino-kun: Treasure of Demon Tower is an arcade retro platformer in which you climb a giant tower while dodging enemies, traps and other obstacles. On your quest you’ll use your hookshot to quickly pull yourself to higher platforms and out of the sight of enemies roaming the various floors of the tower.
Unlike my previous project [Speer], Shino-kun won’t focus on puzzles but rather on smooth and precise platforming. That’s not to say that you won’t need to be clever though, as keeping out of sight will sometimes be absolutely necessary. And if you just can’t find a way around some enemies, maybe you’ll find a way to use their own traps against them…?
Chibi Ninja Shino-kun: Treasure of Demon Tower is being developed in HaxeFlixel and will be released whenever it’s ready on PC, Mac and Linux. The game is still in early stages of production so there are plenty of updates coming. If you want to stay in the loop, follow me on Twitter @ohsat_games and sign up for my newsletter below!

When you have a player character that should always bounce, a couple of obvious questions present themselves: How should they bounce? How high should they bounce? How quickly should they bounce? Questions like that form the basis of the entire gameplay concept, so it’s very important to tackle them as early as possible…even if you’ll often end up tackling them a few more times before the game ships. Here are the answers I’ve worked out for now.
Welcome to the first post of my new Go! Go! PogoGirl devlog! Here I’ll post long-form updates on the development of Go! Go! PogoGirl, sharing my experiences, crying about the bugs I encounter, and more. Developing a game is a journey, and it’s more fun when you can drag people along with you. Stay away from the radio though; I pick the music. Okay, so let’s start off by explaining what Go!
