Nightkeep, pixel-like metroidvania


I’ve finally managed to sneak my way onto Steam Greenlight with my metroidvania Nightkeep. As a direct result of this, the game has received a rather big update. 

Nightkeep is a 2D metroidvania-like platformer with RPG elements set in a fictional medieval fantasy world, accompanied by an original story. You play as Arietta, a huntress. She’s more of a lone wolf and even though hunters usually hunt in groups, Arietta has her own approach.

Greenlight Campaign

When I first joined pixeljoint (2014) I could barely draw lights or shades. I have to thank all great users from the WIP seciton who gave me advice over the years. Because of you I am able to draw things way better now.

With my current skill level, which is far away from perfect, I can still fulfill my dream of making a full custom game.


If you like my project, I’d really appreciate support of any sort. I hope this can at least motivate starting pixel artists, if nothing else! It is great to be part of a community such as PJ!
