Description

MindSeize is a 2D Action-Adventure game set in a futuristic universe. The game is a “Metroidvania”, inspired by series like Metroid and Castlevania, as well as Mega Man X. Exploration is key to success!

The story of MindSeize centers around M.C., a private investigator chasing after a dangerous criminal organization called 'The Ascended', which for unknown reasons is stealing minds of innocent people. The first confrontation between M.C. and the leader of The Ascended severely injured M.C. and left him crippled. They also managed to seize the mind of his daughter. This left only one choice for our protagonist: hire a crew, connect his consciousness into a robotic body and continue the chase.

Combat and exploration make up most of the gameplay in MindSeize. To help you fight enemies and explore planets, there are many abilities, items and weapons for you to find and unlock. The time outside the planets is spent on your space ship, where you are free of your robotic body, with a possibility of relaxing a bit and getting to know your crew better.

MindSeize will also tell a vivid story on multiple levels, both large and small. While the planets you explore have storylines of their own, the core will be the personal story of M.C. Eventually you will also solve the mystery of The Ascended.

At the moment, we are user testing with the demo build and receiving feedback on how to improve the gameplay, feel and looks of MindSeize. The demo features one large area for you to explore, with multiple secrets, enemies and bosses within.

History

Our love for old school titles such as Metroid and Mega Man X set us off to work on the game we always wanted to create. The general concept for the game has been evolving for a couple years and we started working on the actual development in January 2018. Most of the core mechanics are already implemented and everything from graphics to audio are building at a promising rate.
