Hazelnut Bastille for Switch and PC Gets Debut Trailer

Posted by TurtleGirl On October - 3 - 2018

Aloft Studio has released it’s debut trailer for RPG, Hazelnut Bastille coming to Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac and Linux. Take a hop, skip and Wednesday jump to check it out below.


Hazelnut Bastille is a top-down adventure game with Metroidvania elements which seeks to continue the great lineage of superior design from the mid 90s- the moment in time when mainstream 2D titles reached arguably their greatest level of refinement, in titles such as Super Metroid and A Link to the Past. We seek to emulate this period in most ways, from graphic presentation, to audio production, to general level design philosophy.
Hazelnut Bastille tells the story of a young woman who travels to a foreign shore on the outskirts of her world, in order to seek out the promised gifts of mythological ancients, in hopes of retrieving something which was lost to her. On the way, her story becomes irrevocably intertwined with the lives of those living in this far off land.


Hazelnut Bastille started as a prototyping project in April of 2016, and has been in full time development ever since. The project is being developed in the Unity Engine, in a custom framework built in C#, and features its own custom development tools and level editors which allow us to manage environmental art and level design scripting in one package.
