Independent developer Antonio Rodríguez from Madrid, Spain, has successfully funded his indie game Skeler Boy on Kickstarter. What makes this unique is that the title is planned to release on modern consoles, but it is also getting physical releases for the NES, Game Boy, and even the ZX Spectrum that are compatible with the original consoles.

About Skeler Boy
Skeler Boy is a pixel-art horror atmosphere game inspired by films from the 70s and the 80s such as ‘The Exorcist’ (1973), ‘The Shining’ (1980), and ‘Neverending Story’ (1984). To experience an immersive 3D feeling, Skeler Boy can be played using the classic 3D glasses with a red and green lense which were widely spread in the 90s. Skeler Boy will be released on Steam and GooglePlay later this year. We will keep you updated about the news regarding the development of the game.
