Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover Island is a vibrant 3D platformer, a homage to the platformer genre of the previous decade that all of us grew up playing. The game combines classic action gameplay, playful gadgets, and a lighthearted story set in an exotic place with lush greenery and colorful landscapes, reminiscent of childhood adventures. If you miss adventuring like it’s 2001, or just love colorful aesthetics, tasty upbeat music, goofy humor and collecting lots of shiny gems, Skylar & Plux is for you!
You take the role of our main heroine, Skylar Lynxe, a snow cat with a mysterious robotic arm. Together with the trusty sidekick, Plux Owlsley, you must stop an evil industrialist who plans to conquer Clover Island — you must save it from destruction!
You’ll have all the moves you’d expect from a standard platformer. You can jump, double-jump and do a spin-attack. As you progress through the stages, you’ll can unlock various gadgets such the jetpack or the magnetic glove. Aside from those pure platforming mechanics, you’ll also find puzzle elements like the ones found in classic adventure games. All of us who participated in the development, grew up playing the 3D platformers of the 90s, so Skylar & Plux is heavily inspired by titles such as Spyro, Jak & Daxter, and Banjo-Kazooie.
We hope you’ll enjoy playing the game as much as we did developing it. Your feedback is very valuable to us, so we’re looking forward to seeing what you think so feel free to get in touch with our team, either through our contact email or on our social media pages.
