Hoplegs is a different kind of platformer about a moving box and four legs with unconventional controllers. Each of the four buttons on your gamepad where you usually jump, interact, crouch and change weapons are now your different legs. Master this unique way of controlling your character to navigate through a large variation of levels created by the developer or the community!
Back in February 2019 Kevin livestreamed and took a break from his main project at the time, created a small prototype and tweeted it before going to bed. “The morning after, the tweet had blown up in comparison to my other tweets. It was no question that this prototype had to become a full game on day.” says Kevin Andersson.
Since the game started during a livestream it felt natural to keep working on the project with an audience. The core of Hoplegs is focused on the unconventional way of controlling your character that's wrapped in a package filled with silliness and creativity. The community that grows every week around the game and the live stream provides fun and silly ideas that could eventually end up in the game.
