Eighties-Inspired Game Collection From the Creators of 'Spelunky,' 'Downwell'

UFO 50 Announced by the Developers of Spelunky and Downwell

UFO 50 is a new collaborative project between Yu, Ojiro Fumuto (Downwell), Jon Perry (Time Barons), Eirik Suhrke (Skorpulac), and Paul Hubans (MADHOUSE). The team says that one-third of the games will feature a multiplayer aspect, competitive or cooperative, and that "our goal is to combine a familiar 8-bit aesthetic with new ideas and modern game design sensibilities". Until now. UFO 50 is the latest project from Mossmouth, and it isn't just a single title.

Spelunky creator Derek Yu hinted at something new a couple of weeks ago when he tweeted a screenshot of what appeared to be a new game, accompanied by the hashtag #UFO50. Each game will be "slightly smaller" than an actual 8-bit game from that time period, but Yu and co stress that they're "full games" rather than minigames. The titles hit across a huge spread of genres from puzzles to beat 'em ups. Mossmouth says the entire collection could take more than 100 hours to play through. These games were all created in the 1980s by this fictional, obscure, and "ahead of its time" company. And another, they will first be available for the PC and then later on, other platforms, though it will probably go to consoles first before mobile devices. Well prepare to be all nostalgia-ed out by 2018 as a collective known as UFO 50 is planning to release 50 original single-player and multiplayer games, all in the 8-bit style that us oldies love. The games are unified by a "unique 32-color palette and other restrictions we decided on to make them feel more authentic", the developers said.

A price has yet to be announced, but its creators want it to be "an easy purchase".
