Adventures of Chris Next Month

Publisher Graffiti Games and developer Guin Entertainment announce an October 8th release date for Adventures of Chris, their platformer for Windows, macOS, and Linux via Steam as well as for Switch. In this you play as an unlikely superhero in action inspired by 90s cartoons, as shown in this Coming Soon Trailer. Here's more on what this brings to the party:
Adventures of Chris is a ‘90s-inspired adventure platformer where you help a chubby underdog kid with wacky superpowers battle bizarre villains, unlock and customize special moves and spells, and save the world. After getting kidnapped and turned into a balloon by cartoon villains, you’ll escape and learn a bevy of skills such as how to throw lightning and bounce around like a basketball. Using these skills and more you’ll transform Chris from a weak kid into the ultimate hero, defeating the forces of villainy and making it home in time for dessert.

“Adventures of Chris is a totally normal story about the adventures I went on as a nerdy, chubby kid back in 1995,” said Chris Guin, CEO of Guin Entertainment. “It has a neat story with lots of humor that I think gamers will enjoy. In addition to a comedic story I added a variety of gameplay mechanics to make the combat diverse and entertaining. I had fun making the game and I hope it becomes a favorite for many.”
