Sam's Journey · A new NES game in the making

Recommended Posts

Hi there, video gamers!

I'm Chester from the Knights of Bytes, and we would like to present you some teaser pictures and videos of Sam's Journey, our very first game for the NES. It's about a cute little hero called Sam who finds himself on an unexpected journey in a strange world.

Sam's Journey (NES) · Title Picture

Sam may look cute, but he is fast and swift! And with the proper suit, he can change his appearance completely and be a fierce pirate with a mighty cutlass! You can see this in our first teaser video! Just click to play:

Sam's Journey (NES) · Sneak Peek #1 · "Here We Go, Sam!"

You've already seen Sam become a pirate with a mighty cutlass, but in the hot desert with its ancient temple ruins, a special climbing ability comes in much more handy. Enjoy our second teaser, featuring Ninja Sam and an Egyptian-style soundtrack! Just click to play:

Sam's Journey (NES) · Sneak Peek #2 · "Sam's Desert Dream"

We're going to post more updates as the development progresses.
So if you're curious to see more of Sam, stay tuned! 🙂🕹️

We're indeed planning on Kickstarting it when we've reached a certain state of progress. We're heading for a physical release, with a cartridge in a box and a printed manual as the "minimum" or "basic" edition.

I’ve been keeping an eye on your game for awhile, and it’s on my Homebrew on the Horizon thread. Looking forward to your Kickstarter. In the meantime, glad to see you here!

Looks fun, and since my oldest son's name is Sam, I tend to gravitate towards anything with his name in it. 😛

Not that we are aware of.

There's a show Atypical with an autistic kid named Sam and his parents made him a board game titled "Sam Takes A Walk" where he encounters unfamiliar situations and has to learn to deal with them.

Well, if he's also a bit into retro gaming, then it's win for everyone! 🥳

Looking great. Digging the kid chameleon aspect 

Sam has a few more costums in his wardrobe. 🙂

Interesting, thanks for mentioning. Our Sam will encounter quite some situations aswell, but other than that, they are not related! 😉

Yes, we initially created Sam's Journey for the C64 to bring some NES vibes to that system. And now, with Sam coming to the NES, we're kind of closing the circle! 😃

Looks very slick! I hope there will be a non-Kickstarter way to get a copy.

To give the fans of platform games on the NES a good time is what we primarily aim for.  🙂

Our yet-to-be-announced publisher just confirmed that there will options to obtain the game after the Kickstarter. The Kickstarter, however, will help us to get the production costs covered.

Hi there, video gamers!

Waiting for an update on Sam's Journey for the NES? Here we go! 🙂

Although being a great runner and an amazing jumper, Sam is not at all averse to alternative methods of transportation. The third teaser of our upcoming NES title features Sam in a fiery castle. Watch him climb a web, use moving platforms, and have himself shot across long distances by cannons! Just click to play:

Sam's Journey (NES) · Sneak Peek #3 · "Sam's Castle Ride"

Sam's Journey (NES) · Sneak Peek #3 · "Sam's Castle Ride"

If you're curious to see more of Sam, just stay tuned!
Further updates will be posted as the development progresses. 🙂🕹️

I played this game on the C64 - it's for sure one of the best games ever on that machine!

Had a lot of fun with this and can't wait to try it on NES.
