Little Nemo and the Guardians of Slumberland takes the retro NES-era platformer gameplay of Capcom and Nintendo favorites and brings it to a vast, non-linear world that has been lovingly hand-animated frame-by-frame. You’ll explore as you collect new ability-granting toys and PJs, discover enchanting lands inspired by Winsor McCay’s Little Nemo comics, and encounter a colorful cast of characters — all through the nostalgic lens of an ‘80s/’90s kid.
The target release date is the end of 2023, launching on Nintendo Switch and Windows via Steam and itch.io.
Slumberland, the wonderous world of dreams, has been besieged by the mysterious Oblivion, which threatens to destroy this precious world and its inhabitants. It’s up to you, Nemo, to save them! Explore Slumberland and collect your toys to become more powerful, enlist the help of colorful characters, and push back the Oblivion.
When I started working on Little Nemo, I was heavily inspired by games and comics from my childhood such as Super Metroid, Mario 2, Simon’s Quest, Yoshi’s Island, and Calvin & Hobbes. Modern hand-drawn games such as The Dragon’s Trap and Hollow Knight helped illustrate just how much I could push the visual boundaries of a 2D platformer.
