Those looking for a delightful, goofy portal to the past may have something to look forward to. Developer Colorgrave, responsible for last year’s Prodigal, has revealed a teaser trailer for Curse Crackers: For Whom the Belle Toils, their sophomore project.
A retro-inspired 2D platformer, it visually encapsulates the era of the GameBoy. The game stars Belle and her “lovable pet of questionable origins” Chime as they attempt to rescue Belle’s boyfriend from the clutches of the nefarious Bonnie. If that wasn’t enough, Bonnie is a necromancer, using her magic to curse the land to cover her tracks.
Curse Crackers is currently slated to release in November, later this year. Players can wishlist the game on Steam as of today.
Colorgrave is a company based in Dallas, Texas, with work in the gaming industry dating back to 2014. While Prodigal was their debut game under the name “Colorgrave,” their prior work also includes The BoX and Xenocite Clad, under the company name White Clover, Inc. Xenocite Clad, specifically, is currently undergoing active development.
